Thimbleweed Park big content update hits Steam

thimbleweed park big content update hits steam via linux mac windows games

So in a town like #ThimbleweedPark, a dead body is the least of your problems. Especially since the #games received a big content update. While the new version is available now on Steam, along with a Summer Sale discount. While also including support for Linux, Mac and #Windows.

Check out below and the tell-all blog post from designer Ron Gilbert for more details.

New In-Game Hint Line

Before there were walkthroughs and Let’s Plays, there were telephone hint lines: 1-900 numbers you could call when you were desperately stuck in an adventure game. They cost $2 per minute. Mom and Dad were not thrilled when the phone bill showed up. Ahh, the good old days.

Today Thimbleweed Park brings back this classic feature with the HintTron 3000. Dial 4468 (HINT) from any in-game phone to get context-sensitive hints for the part where you’re stuck. No more quitting out of the game to find a walkthrough! No more banging your head against the wall! Best of all, the HintTron 3000 is absolutely free — no outrageous phone bills from MMucasFlem!

More Chatter

With 16,000 lines of dialogue and 47 speaking roles, Thimbleweed Park was never skimpy in the voice department. But why stop there? As of today’s update, the four living main characters have even more to say!

Thimbleweed Park‘s lead actors recently returned to the studio to record a bunch of new conversations amongst themselves. Now when two playable characters are sharing the screen, they can talk to each other instead of awkwardly standing around. Why? Because enough players asked for it and the team thought it was a good idea. Sometimes that’s all it takes.

So normally the games priced at $19.99 USD. Thimbleweed Park is discounted for $15.99 as part of the Summer Sale on Steam. And since the games available for Linux, Mac and Windows too.
Therefore through to July 5, save 20% on the game called “deep and memorable,” by IGN,. While it’s “a joy to play,” by Game Informer and “one of the best games of 2017” by Ron Gilbert’s mom.

Descent: Underground releases major content update for Linux, Mac and Windows PC

descent_underground_gets_major_content_update_for_linux_mac_windows_pc

#DescendentStudios, the Austin, Texas-based game developer, today released a #major #content update to Descent: Underground, its reboot of the classic 1990’s FPS, Descent. Nicknamed “Rama”, this version includes new game content as well as user experience improvements. The Early Access version of Descent: Underground is now available on Steam with a 67% discount and through DescentUnderground.com.

New features include a new multiplayer map called “Rama” which blends open arena space with confined rooms and passages. The “Torch”, a predecessor to the legendary “Pyro” of the original games, adds a dueling ship to the range of class roles available. Proximity Mines give an explosive spin to the list of deployable gadgets, while a fuel-guzzling Afterburner and the return of trichording help players escape from danger or get to the fight faster.

Players can now create their own match lobbies, selecting their favorite maps and game modes and inviting friends to play via a short code. Lobbies can also be public or private. Players also now have a career page that shows statistics about their in-game performance. More details are available in the Release Notes.

An officially-licensed prequel to the enormously successful Descent series of games, Descent: Underground combines first-person shooter action with six degrees of freedom vehicular movement. Players take on the role of pilots commanding space-combat ships in high-stakes battles for control of warren-like asteroid mines. Combining AAA graphics and unique gameplay, Descent: Underground attracted long lines at this summer’s Rooster Teeth Expo as fans clamored to get a chance to play.

Descent: Underground is available on Steam with a 67% discount and scheduled for release during the first part of 2016 for Linux, Mac, and Windows PC. More information is available on the company’s website at DescentUnderground.com.
