The Next Big Thing Demo

Hello everyone!

I dont know if anyone has seen this yet but it looks like it might be a fun game. I downloaded the demo but unfortunatley the demo is in German and I dont speak German so it is useless for me. But I did spend time walking around and looking at the graphics. Its got some pretty good music and I love the colors! Its worth checking out. I am hoping they will make an English version when the game is released. If not that I would be happy with English subtitles.

Thanks for the notice. I know German and was curious about the game for quite a while, so the demo is definitely something for me.

Yeah I am very tempted to learn German just so I can play some games. There are several games I have missed out on because they are only in German. But I am pretty excited about this one!

Today I played it through. It was fun. But short. BUT short and good is better than long and bad.

Much allusions on movies and yeah LucasArts Games. Sam and Max. Or MI:
Look at ship: "I hate pirate movies..."
And then: "Just look there is the famous ship by the intrepid G.T. who sailed to M.I. to settle accounts with L.C."

This looks real promising! I really like how they have succeeded in blending the 3d characters with the environments. A tricky task to say the least. Characters do seem a bit cliché and uninspired though but who am I to say so, heh.

The German version is out since February! I think it was cruel to delay the release of English version to April 21

So I know this is very late but I finally got the english version. I havnt played it all the way through yet but I already love it. I like the look of the game the most. Very pretty! But I do have to say the characters in my opinion are a bit too blah and boring at some points. But I love the robots in the game! They are the best part!!! So I am happy with it. A pretty nice game considering what a fail the Runaway series was.
