Thimbleweed Park is a graphic adventure where federal agents discover a floating dead body and the story begins in this sci-fi mystery parody. As the successor to games such as Maniac Mansion and the Secret of Monkey Island, Thimbleweed Park will arrive on PlayStation 4 late August 2017.
The news comes from Thimbleweed Park production lead Ron Gilbert, who also worked with maniac Mansion co-creator gary Winnick. The game was originally released for Linux, Mac, PC and Xbox. Developers have confirmed that Thimbleweed Park will be ported over to PS4 (coming this summer) and eventually to Nintendo Switch.
Thimbleweed Park Arcade Adventure
Thimbleweed Park takes place in a town where two federal agents discover a body floating down the river. From there players can assume the identity of 5 characters in the game. In addition to agents Ray and Reyes, players can take control of Ransome, a wicked mouthed clown, Delores an aspiring video game designer and her dead father Franklin.
Thimbleweed Park is a nostalgic game design that is a great fit for those that like retro and adventure gaming fans. The subtle and blatant humor is aimed at poking fun at the sci fi mystery block busters such as twin Peaks, The X-Files and the likes of authors such as Stephen King.
