Redistributable PC demos are becoming quite a rare thing these days, but the European developers still seem to have a lot of love for the old ways.

Today, France-based Focus Home Interactive have released a playable demo for The Next Big Thing, the upcoming point-and-click adventure game from Pendulo Studios who some may remember as the creators of 2009's Runaway 3: a Twist of Fate (AusGamers 8.3/10).
The demo puts you in the shoes of young Liz Allaire, one of the game’s two playable characters, in the midst of a journalistic investigation with her colleague Dan Murray. The Horror Night Ceremony is in full swing, and while our journalist duo is covering the event, Liz stubmles upon some suspicious activity. She witnesses the famous Hollywood monster actor Big Albert breaking into the office of his boss, Fitz Randolph, who also happens to also be the biggest horror movie producer in the biz.

The demo will give adventure fans a taste of the crazy, funny adventure to come. The Next Big Thing is loaded with whacky characters and puzzles of all types.
At a rather reasonable 792MiB you can download The Next Big Thing PC demo right here from AusGamers.

You can also check out the launch trailer embedded below (Or click here for HD)

The Next Big Thing is due on digital download stores as well as Australian retail courtesy of QV Software next week on April 22nd 2011.
