After having put the adventure game genre back into the spotlight with the Runaway trilogy, which had captivated more than a million players during the last decade, Pendulo Studios is back with an original, great adventure game.

The story introduces the couple of charismatic heroes Dan Murray and Liz Allaire involved in an incredible and crazy adventure, full of twists and packed with moments of pure comedy! With "The Next BIG Thing", Pendulo Studios stay faithful to their unique graphic style that puts their games close to actual animated movies. The Next BIG Thing also maintains Runaway’s popular and beloved ingredients: an intricate story, funny and charismatic characters, wacky mysteries and puzzles, and a definite adult and modern tone.

Gifted but lazy, Dan is a slacker journalist at the "Quill". He's a macho man and a notorious lady-killer. Only two things matter in his eyes: beautiful women and sports — in that order. When he's transferred from the sports desk to the newspaper's "social" section as Liz Allaire's sidekick, Dan is anything but pleased; most likely because she is the first woman to show a total indifference to his usually-irresistible charm!

The adventure sets off again with The Next BIG Thing, in an original and fantastic story, loaded with humor, twists and turns, and crazy monsters!
