After two years of sharing all of the gritty details of Thimbleweed Park‘s development with #Kickstarterbackers and curious bystanders. Hence #RonGilbert, Gary Winnick, and the rest of the Thimbleweed Park team are excited. Since they are finally #announcing the March 30th release date for Linux, Mac, Windows PC.
So if you’ve recently emerged from an underground bunker and have never heard of this mysterious adventure in gaming. These are the creators of Monkey Island and Maniac Mansion. Well known in the gaming business. So the Thimbleweed Park developers are as excited as we are. Since this is a day-one Linux release. Including Ransome the clown too.
Here are some important pre-launch Monkey Island details:
A haunted hotel, an abandoned circus, a burnt-out pillow factory, a dead body pixelating under the bridge. While toilets run on vacuum tubes… you’ve never visited a place like this before.
So the gaming experience consists of five people with nothing in common have been drawn to this rundown, forgotten town. While they don’t know it yet, but they are all deeply connected. And they’re being watched.
…Who is Agent Ray really working for and will she get what they want?
…What does Junior Agent Reyes know about a 20 year old factory fire that he’s not saying?
…Does the ghost, Franklin, get to speak to his daughter again?
…So will Ransome the *Beeping* Clown ever become a decent human being?
…Will aspiring game developer Delores abandon her dreams and stick by her family?
…And most importantly: how come no one cares about that dead body?
By the end of a long, strange night in Thimbleweed Park, all of this will be answered. So players will question everything you thought you knew.
In a town like Thimbleweed Park, a dead body is the least of your problems. Therefore players switch between five playable characters to uncover the surreal secrets of this strange town in a modern mystery adventure game. Hence the creators go deeper and get weirder.
Thimbleweed Park will launch on Steam and GOG for Linux, Mac and Windows PC. We will announce pricing closer to the release date. There also plans to bring Thimbleweed Park to iPhone/iPad and Android later this year.
