Ron Gilbert’s Thimbleweed Park gets a brilliant new trailer

New story-focused Thimbleweed Park trailer introduces Special Agent Ray.



Thimbleweed Park

New story-focused Thimbleweed Park trailer introduces Special Agent Ray.

The upcoming adventure game – which was funded on Kickstarter in 2014 – comes from Ron Gilbert and Gary Winnick, creators of the LucasArts classic, Maniac Mansion. It pays homage to the golden age of point and click adventure games but with modern game design sensibilities and productions levels.

And it looks just beautiful.

The new trailer follows Special Agent Ray and shows off the game’s humour and art direction beautifully. Pitched as a darkly witty combination of True Detective, Twin Peaks, and The X-Files, it’s one we’re looking forward to.

Thimbleweed Park will be released on Windows, Mac, Xbox One and Linux in late 2016.

We have a favour to ask

Thumbsticks has a couple of main aims. We want to write interesting articles and cover games that most outlets won't, and we want to give opportunities to new writers and new voices. And right now, with the current state of online publishing? It's tough! We hate to ask, but if you want us to continue writing what others won't, or to keep covering weird indie games, or to be able to give opportunities to new writers – and only if you can afford it – then please consider supporting us on Patreon.
