We’ve been keeping a very close eye on Thimbleweed Park for quite some time now because it’s not often you get an adventure game from Ron Gilbert and Gary Winnick, the developers responsible for the classic Maniac Mansion. I’m happy to say that the game is finally coming to iOS September 19th and Android October 3rd. The game has already released on Steam to great reviews, which only made the wait worse for us over in the mobile world. Thimbleweed Park is a mystery game in the vein of Maniac Mansion and Monkey Island, which means plenty of comedy to go along with the mystery. It tells the story of two federal agents trying to solve the mystery of a body found under the bridge in the town of Thimbleweed Park.
The game’s cast features all kinds of peculiar characters, including an insult clown, an aspiring game developer, and even the ghost of a pillow salesman. You are able to play as all of them (in the fashion of Maniac Mansion) as you try to figure out the craziness that is the mystery at Thimbleweed Park. I can’t wait to get my hands on this one, and I’m glad September 19th is just around the corner.
