Thimbleweed Park is coming to Switch on September 21st
Terrible Toybox has announced that Thimbleweed Park will be released on the Nintendo Switch on September 21st.
Terrible Toybox are better known as legendary game developers Ron Gilbert and Gary Winnick who made such games as Monkey Island and Maniac Mansion – perhaps you’ve heard of them.
Thimbleweed Park is a throwback to the point-and-click adventure titles of the 1980s. The Switch version will support both controller and touch screen controls which basically makes it a point and tap title.
The game’s price is set at $19.99US, we’ll try and find out the Australian price as soon as possible.
October 15, 1987. A dead body is rotting under the bridge, but Thimbleweed Park’s 81 (sorry, make that 80) inhabitants have bigger concerns. The town’s founder also died recently, under mysterious circumstances. The air is buzzing with signals. The hotel appears to be haunted. A giant slice of pizza roams the streets. And something sinister is going on behind the locked gate of the abandoned PillowTronics™ factory — something that could consume us all.
Two federal agents, a washed-up insult clown, an aspiring game developer, and the ghost of a pillow salesman have been drawn to this weird, rundown place. They don’t know it yet, but they’re deeply connected — and they’re being watched. Switch* between them to explore the town, solve puzzles, and unravel the surreal mystery at the heart of it all. As you’ll see soon enough, in a town like Thimbleweed Park a dead body is the least of your problems.
