Thimbleweed Park Review – April 20, 2017 

On September 21st, Nintendo Switch players will be able to party like its 1987 with their very own version of Thimbleweed Park. Both Joy-Con controllers and touch screen controls will be supported, making it easy to switch (heh, heh) between tabletop, handheld, and TV modes.

In case you’ve been living under a rock, allow me to briefly describe the game.

It’s October 15, 1987. The town of Thimbleweed Park is not doing well. A rotting body is lying face down under a bridge. The town’s founder has recently died under suspicious circumstances. The hotel might be haunted. A sinister bit of business is taking place in the abandoned pillow factory. A giant pizza slice is roaming the streets.

You’ll also find two federal agents, a washed-up insult clown, an aspiring game developer and the ghost of a pillow salesman. During the course of the game you’ll get to inhabit all of them as you go about unraveling the game’s surreal mystery.

So is Thimbleweed Park a game you’d want to play? The developers have provided a short quiz to tell you just that:

~Do you still feel guilty about microwaving a hamster in Maniac Mansion?
~Would you know what to say if someone suggested that you fight like a dairy farmer?
~Do you have no idea what those last two questions are about, but love stuff like Twin Peaks, the X-Files, Stranger Things, jokes, puzzles, and vacuum tubes?

If you’ve answered Yes to any of these questions, Thimbleweed Park is for you. Look for the game on September 21st at the Nintendo eShop. The price will be $19.99 USD.

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.
