Terrible Toybox has confirmed a launch date and release platforms for its upcoming Twin Peaks-inspired retro adventure game, Thimbleweed Park.
Created by two of the minds behind Monkey Island and Maniac Mansion Ron Gilbert and Gary Winnick, Thimbleweed Park is a point-and-click adventure game, which our own Scott Butterworth said in his preview is “the adventure game you think you remember.”
To hear the press release tell it: “A haunted hotel, an abandoned circus, a burnt-out pillow factory, a dead body pixelating under the bridge, toilets that run on vacuum tubes… you’ve never visited a place like this before. Five people with nothing in common have been drawn to this rundown, forgotten town. They don’t know it yet, but they are all deeply connected. And they’re being watched.”
The game is initially coming to the Steam, GOG, and Xbox Live platforms, “with other stores to follow.” The game will also be coming iOS and Android later this year. Pricing on all platforms will be announced closer to release.
At the announcement of Disney Interactive’s discontinuation of console game publishing, Thimbleweed Park head Ron Gilbert stated he’d like to buy the Monkey Island and Maniac Mansion IP back from the company for “real actual money.”
