The Next BIG Thing
game brief: TNBT 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, twists and turns, lies, monsters, fridges, teleportation cabins, stolen brains, half meter flies, Egyptian bombshells, Mexican werewolves, Australian crocodiles, and… What?

review: Read my review @ Adventure Gamers® | rating: 3.5/5

summary: The glossy production, zany cast and clever writing are sure to entertain fans of whimsical adventures, but a shaky plot and inconsistent gameplay trip this one up just short of its billing as The Next BIG Thing.
