The Next Big Thing presents co-star Dan Murray in new video and screenshots

After meeting main character Liz Allaire a few weeks back, players can now view the first footage of her charismatic partner Dan Murray, the other playable character in Pendulo Studios’ upcoming adventure game The Next Big Thing.

The Next BIG Thing

Here’s the rundown on Dan from Pendulo Studios:

“Gifted but lazy, Dan is a slacker journalist at the “Quill.” He’s a macho man and a notorious lady-killer. Only two things matter in his eyes: beautiful women and sports… in that order. When he’s transferred from the sports desk to the newspaper’s “social” section as Liz Allaire’s sidekick, Dan is anything but pleased; most likely because she is the first woman to show a total indifference to his usually-irresistible charm!”

Players will get to play as both halves of the dynamic duo when The Next Big Thing launches in April for Mac and PC.
