Point-and-click adventure game Thimbleweed Park released on desktop last March and has racked up an impressive "overwhelmingly positive" reputation on Steam. The game focuses on a murder investigation in the strange town of Thimbleweed Park and follows FBI agents Ray and Reyes as they talk to a number of persons of interest and try to piece together what happened. The game has also launched on consoles, with the Xbox One version arriving alongside the desktop version back in March, a PS4 version rolling out tomorrow, and a Nintendo Switch version likely coming in September. Why are we mentioning it here on TouchAracade? Ron Gilbert, one of the developers of the game, tweeted earlier today that we should see mobile versions of the game very soon…

That makes it seem pretty imminent, doesn't it? Point-and-click gameplay screams iPad, and there's no surprise that Thimbleweed Park will be making the conversion. Are you looking forward to this one coming to mobile? We'll keep you posted on an exact release date once it becomes known. In the meantime, check out the Thimbleweed Park launch trailer below if you haven't seen it already.

    Def a day one buy for me!! For those who have played, how does it rack up to wadjet adventures as far as puzzles, atmosphere, and game length go? Looking forward to it!!

      I played it and thought it was great! As far as comparison to Wadjet Eye, I thought the voice acting was solid (maybe not quite as good as theirs) and the puzzles were fairly tough, more old school point and click.

    Ah that's cool to see. I haven't gotten it yet for the PC as my backlog is quite sizable there, but I might pick it up for the iPad.

    Played it on Mac.
    It is the real thing. In terms of story and characters not as otherworldly brilliant as Monkey Island or Grim Fandango but still very very smart and funny and in terms of puzzle design it might be the best.
    Their own description of it as a contemporary tribute to the games of the past fits, but is also too modest. Both as an ambition and as a description.
    More than that I feel it a tribute and thank you to all the players who love the genre and our stubborn nerdiness.
