Thimbleweed Park: New Trailer – August 6, 2016

The town of Thimbleweed Park once thrived with an opulent hotel, a vibrant business district and the state’s largest pillow factory. It now exists as a mere shadow of its former self along a dusty stretch of highway. Thimbleweed Park, the game, tells the story of two washed-up federal agents called in to investigate a dead body found in the river just outside of town.

From the minds of Ron Gilbert and Gary Winnick, the game will feature the duo’s signature satirical humor and poke fun at the likes of Twin Peaks, True Detective and The X-Files, with a pinch of Stephen King thrown in. Ron and Gary intend to reignite the warm, fuzzy feeling of playing a point-and-click adventure back when 8-bit was state-of-the-art, puzzles were puzzles and story ruled.

Thimbleweed Park will feature five playable characters (the aforementioned agents, a cursed clown, a jaded heiress and the ghost of a pillow salesman); a vast, compelling world to explore at your own pace; a cast of thousands (actually 20); a guaranteed joke every two minutes (really) and no dead ends or stupid puzzles. So say Ron and Gary.

Kickstarter-funded in 2014, the game should be completed early in 2017 for Xbox One, Windows, Mac and Linux. Android and iOS versions are to follow shortly thereafter.

I've been with JA in one capacity or other since 2003. I'm currently website administrator. I'm also a digital artist (my avatar is one of my creations). I write reviews and articles, create graphics and basically help tend the site. It's work I enjoy very much. I love playing games of all kinds, but adventure and RPGs are my favorites (particularly scary/dark/unsettling ones). At the top of my list are The Cat Lady, The Longest Journey, Dreamfall, Still Life (first one only), Scratches and Culpa Innata. I'm a dyed-in-the-wool recluse and prefer the company of animals, hardware and ghosts to human beings (no offense). And no bio would be complete without my saying that I do NOT care for phones of ANY sort. Further, I think Dell computers are garbage and that Microsoft has become megalomaniacal.
