It's not quite as big as it's gonna get, but for fans anticipating The Next BIG Thing, today's demo release of Pendulo's comic adventure is the next BEST thing.
The Next BIG Thing is set in a 1940s-era Hollywood filled with monsters, but MKO Pictures is planning to get out of the horror business, leaving journalists Liz Allaire and Dan Murray to answer such questions as what would happen if the monsters were "now forced to play in kids' movies, romantic comedies or even musicals? And what would happen if, at the end, they decided to rebel?"
The demo kicks off right at the start of the game, with Liz seeking entrance to the office of William FitzRandolph after spotting a monster breaking in only a few moments earlier. It won't be an easy task, however, as she'll first need to overcome a hungry venus flytrap, watchful guardian robots, and Dan's utter disdain and complete lack of cooperation. Weighing in at just under 800 MB, the demo can be downloaded directly from the game's official website.
The final version of The Next BIG Thing is due next week.
