Ron Gilbert, Gary Winnick, and the rest of Team Thimbleweed were recently excited to announce a March 30, 2017 release date for their title after two years of sharing details of Thimbleweed Park’s development. It will arrive on Windows, Mac, Linux, and Xbox One. Check out the Ransome and Delores trailers below:
The title will arrive on Steam, Xbox LIVE, and GOG, with other stores to follow. The team has not yet unveiled the pricing, with plans to do so closer to release. They have also confirmed plans to bring Thimbleweed Park to both iPhone/iPad and Android later in 2017, and have expressed the hope to release it on other platforms and consoles in the future, but none have been confirmed.
The title will feature English voice and subtitles, as well as the following:
•German, French, Spanish, and Italian subtitles upon release. Localized screenshots in these languages are included with the new assets released today.
•Russian subtitles soon after launch. These will be added to the game as a free update.
For those that do not know anything about the title, here’s a quick rundown, courtesy of the official press release:
Welcome to Thimbleweed Park. Population: 80 nutcases.
A haunted hotel, an abandoned circus, a burnt-out pillow factory, a dead body pixelating under the bridge, toilets that run on vacuum tubes… you’ve never visited a place like this before.
Five people with nothing in common have been drawn to this rundown, forgotten town. 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?
…Will the ghost, Franklin, get to speak to his daughter again?
…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 — and you’ll question everything you thought you knew.
In a town like Thimbleweed Park, a dead body is the least of your problems. Switch between five playable characters to uncover the surreal secrets of this strange town in a modern mystery adventure game from the creators of Monkey Island and Maniac Mansion. The deeper you go, the weirder it gets.
