GL Writes: The metaphor of monsters in Hollywood calls to mind that special population who wears meat suits and drinks tiger blood. It is a familiar subject to Pendulo Studios. In 1997, Pendulo broached it with Hollywood Monsters. Fast forward to now, The Next Big Thing brings players back into this relevant universe where fame monsters are really monsters, and essentially holds a mirror up to this entertaining, but all together sick, part of society. Ultimately, the game lets us examine this subject in the most entertaining way possible, through an artistic and challenging point and click that has me reconsidering this as one of my favorite genres.
