Thimbleweed Park announced
New game came to Kickstarter from creators of legendary Maniac Mansion. This time they are working on new game with same or similar concept
Thimbleweed Park is the curious story of two washed up detectives called in to investigate a dead body found in the river just outside of town. It’s a game where you switch between five playable characters while uncovering the dark, satirical and bizarre world of Thimbleweed Park.
Lost along a dusty stretch of highway, the town of Thimbleweed Park once boasted an opulent hotel, a vibrant business district and the state’s largest pillow factory, but now teeters on the edge of oblivion and continues to exist for no real reason. It’s a town that makes you itch and your skin crawl. It’s a place no one ever looks for, but everyone seems to find.
“Ww want Thimbleweed Park to be like an undiscovered classic LucasArts’ adventure game you’d never played before,” they wrote. “A game discovered in a dusty old desk that puts a smile on your face and sends a wave of nostalgia through you in the same way it does for us.”
The process of developing the game is being kept as Lucas-like as possible. Gilbert and Winnick will share design and writing duties; Gilbert will handle the majority of the programming, while Winnick will do the art. Six months into development, another programmer and artist will be hired, along with a part-time musician, while testers will be brought in as the game approaches completion.
