The 'The Next BIG Thing' walkthrough will guide you through all twists and turns of a plot of this pleasant game. It is divided into six parts, corresponding to game chapters, and many subchapters where you can find hints to specific tasks.
As default, a mouse cursor takes a shape of an eye on all active objects. To change it into a hand (picking collectibles), speech bubble (conversation) or cog (objects handling), click the RMB. When in the inventory, a cursor takes a shape of hand automatically, but it is worth to change it into an eye and examine objects in close-up. You'll get additional information then and sometimes also new objects.
All available options appear when you move the cursor to the top of a screen. You'll find there (from the left): help (F1), active points (F3), the inventory (Tab), tasks (F3) and the menu (F4). Starting the game, you create a profile connected with avatar (one of the game characters), a nickname and a password. You also have to choose one of the 3 difficulty levels: easy (help and active points are available), medium (active points are on, menu is off) or hard (help and active points are off).
In a menu on the right, next to your avatar, there are three indicators. The first two lines illustrate a usage of narrator's hints and disclosure of active points. They are full at the beginning, but they shrink with use of these options. The last line shows completing tasks in the game and it is empty at the beginning. It fills up as the gameplay proceeds. You can also check your stats, as summarized in a rather humorous way.
A double-click with LMB speeds up passing to locations and characters themselves - they materialize in the indicated spot. A single-click skips dialogs. Collected items are highlighted in the text in red and puzzle solutions are bolded.
