Thimbleweed Park Details, Trailer

By Joseph C, 1 year ago
The last time we heard about Thimbleweed Park, it was a brief announcement as part of our ID@Xbox Gamescom Coverage. All has been radio silence since then, until now. Developers Ron Gilbert and Gary Winnick have released a few minor details and a trailer for the upcoming point-and-click adventure. We already know that the game follows two detectives investigating a dead body, in a town down on its luck.

Paying homage to shows like Twin Peaks and The X Files , Thimbleweed Park tells a tale of mystery and intrigue, where nothing is as it seems. Players will have five playable characters to choose from, numerous puzzles to solve, and a lot of areas to explore as they unravel the murder mystery in the run-down town. It doesn't take itself TOO seriously though, as evidenced by tongue-in-cheek jokes like "bloated and pixelated corpse". Check out the trailer below for a better glimpse into the game.

Thimbleweed Park is set to release sometime toward the end of 2016 on Windows 10 and Xbox One.

I've been gaming practically my whole life, starting around when I was 5 or 6 years old with an Atari 2600 and progressing through nearly every console ever released apart from the Wii U. I'm a completionist by nature, but am trying to move away from chasing every-higher gamerscore and just focusing on enjoying the great games that are all around me. We'll see how successful I am. I've been on TA since 2009 but have become much more active on the site in the past couple of years, and look forward to seeing it grow now that the XB1 app is getting it some much-deserved exposure!
