This spooky castle is from Hollywood Monsters (1997), another one of Pendulo’s games, which was only ever released in Spanish. There’s an English fan-sub patch for it now though. I wonder how much easier the game is in English as I played it in Spanish, which I don’t speak.

At the very least it should be more fun to play it in English. I played the English beta version Pendulo made with English voices but never released. See review at the old site Four Fat Chicks, now called Tap Repeatedly. But in several places the text was still in Spanish with totally different voices. I hated not understanding what was going on and the game got more and more difficult, even in English, and confusing. Unfinished, although I definitely liked it at first. Cry

lool, awesome man.

I wonder why many are convinced that Yesterday is to be Hollywood Monsters II, since I never had the chance to play it like you.

I too played and finished it in Spanish, with heavy use of a Spanish walkthrough and google translate. A very tedious task, I was stuck for ages for missing the tiny pebble in the mine. I tried the fan-made translation not long ago. I couldn’t bring myself to play through the whole game a second time, but the patch works well and the translations are quite good, definitely a better alternative if you don’t speak Spanish Wink

They are? I don’t know, not a lot of what goes on in Yesterday fits the title “Hollywood Monsters”. The Next Big Thing, however… Wink

The official The Next Big Thing Spanish/Italian title is Hollywood Monsters 2.

There’s a clue. Tongue

Well, not really, The Next Big Thing was originally supposed to be a remake of Hollywood Monsters, not a sequel, but they ended up changing so many things that it turned out as an individual game. Then they just called it “Hollywood Monsters 2”. They still have a lot of similarities to their stories, and there are a few (not many) of the same puzzles. So, they’re not really a prequel and a sequel, but rather the same story fleshed out in two different ways.
