The game is not so good as you might expect it to be
If you played Runaway series and love Pendulo adventures like I do you might be dissapointed in The Next BIG Thing as I did. It has too complicated story with a lot of twists, one upon another. There're some parts of story that seems to much far-fetched and unrealistic.
Main menu is awful and I had to save the game periodically because it happend to crash sometime loosing all the progress.
On the bright side, this game has a great arts which remind you of Runaway.
But if you own Mac OS, don't buy it before they fix flashing glitch (see separate discussion on it).

From another Runaway fan and another perspecitve:

a very short but fun adventure. Great animation, humour (I actually found this much more humourous than Runaway), and fresh storytelling devices. Puzzle design was on the easy side. Only complaint is the length...finished it in about 7 hours but it definitely provided a great number of laughs. The other negative reviews can be dis-concerting (yes, I just did that)....

Also, I did not have a single crash and the steam cloud syncing of saved games across multiple computers worked flawlessly.

I just purchased the Pendulo pack and this is the first of the games I've played; so I can't compare it. Generally, I hate point and click adventures but I have been sufficiently entertained and insufficiently frustrated enough to enjoy and recommend. Vegetable soup.
