Videogame Trailer – The Next BIG Thing

I have a soft spot in my heart for point-and-click adventure games. “Story” is key in an adventure game, and some of the most fun I’ve ever had gaming was with a good LucasArts or Sierra game. TellTale Games has taken up the mantle in recent years, but there’s another company that has released some solid adventure titles in recent years, Spanish games company Pendulo Studios.

Their latest release is “The Next BIG Thing.”

From the game’s website:

After having put adventure games back in the spotlight with the Runaway trilogy, which captivated more than a million of players worldwide, Pendulo studio is back once again on front stage with The Next BIG Thing, a brand new adventure in high definition (1920×1080), more beautiful, funnier and even more surprising than ever.

A deep and mature story full of references to classic fantastic movies, an original couple of new heroes that we will definitely remember, a cast of fun and engaging characters and monsters, and a great load of humor. Here are some of the simple but catchy ingredients thrown into The Next BIG Thing’s explosive mix. Add Pendulo’s unique and astonishing graphic art, and the result is The Next BIG Thing, an incredible and crazy adventure.

The Next BIG Thing revisits with class and humor the fantastic cinema universe in a modern and funny adventure, packed with references to the genre’s popular movies and series. It offers a story full of comedy, horror, shivers, action, mystery, romance, suspense, twists and turns, lies, monsters, fridges, teleportation cabins, stolen brains, half meter flies, Egyptian bombshells, Mexican werewolves, Australian crocodiles, and\\¦ What? You didn’t think I was going to reveal everything, did you?
