Three years have elapsed since the 2014 reveal of Thimbleweed Park and its subsequent kickstarter project. Today, the classic charm of LucasArts adventure games has been resurrected into a brand-spanking new murder mystery, available worldwide on a range of gaming platforms.
An adventure game set in the eponymous town, Thimbleweed Park is a bizarre, rundown kind of place with a population of precisely 80 nutcases. The story begins when five individuals (all with equally weird background stories) are inexplicably drawn together following a murder, and set out on a puzzle-solving journey where the dead body is the least of anybody’s concerns.
Thimbleweed Park is available through Steam (PC, Mac & Linux), GOG, Xbox Live, the App Store and Google Play Store for $19.99 USD, with other platforms to follow. As per Guybrush Threepwood’s sage advice, never pay more than twenty dollars for a computer game.
