A brand new adventure game from Ron Gilbert and Gary Winnick, creators of the classics Monkey Island and Maniac Mansion! Play as five characters to uncover the surreal mystery of Thimbleweed Park -- a town where a dead body is the least of your problems.

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 Thimbleweed Park 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.

...Who is Agent Ray really working for and will she get what they want?
...What does Junior Agent Reyes know about a 20 year old factory fire that he’s not saying?
...Will the ghost, Franklin, get to speak to his daughter again?
...Will Ransome the *Beeping* Clown ever become a decent human being?
...Will aspiring game developer Delores abandon her dreams and stick by her family?
...And most importantly: how come no one cares about that dead body?

By the end of a long, strange night in Thimbleweed Park, all of this will be answered -- and you’ll question everything you thought you knew.

In a town like Thimbleweed Park, a dead body is the least of your problems.

Adventure gaming at it's finest

This is a quality game with many hours of gameplay, interesting puzzles, and very interesting characters to interact with. You play as several different characters over the course of the game, switching as you want or need too. The game in infused with lots of humor and late 80's references (as the game is set in 1987). I was always a point and click adventure game fan, and this game does not disappoint. Designed by the makers of some of the best adventure games of the past, know you will find intelligent, funny, and interesting content from beginning to end, and you will likely want to play again to look into the details you might have missed the first time. Make sure to check the game options carefully when you play, as you may want to enable some interesting options right from the start (seriously, do this!).

Great Concept, With a Few Missed Oppurtunities

All of the elements that could have made Thimbleweed Park an excellent game were there. I loved the idea of a seemingly normal game that begins to devolve as the characters realize [spoiler], but poor pacing and mismatched plot elements caused it to fall slightly short of what it could have been. The transition from the murder plot to the reality-bending one could have been done better with a group shock moment, but instead the story slowly slides away from that plot line. Despite the use of chapters, there still were very few defining moments that broke up the first 2/3 into plot elements, as that part was more of a series of puzzles. The execution of the ending could have been better, because the maniacal computers felt cheesy. Seeing the characters find the secret on their own would have been more interesting, especially because by the time of the big reveal, the player probably has read the journals and figured it out. Robots and ghosts coexisting felt off to me as well. Finally, each character having their own ending made the finale feel anticlimactic. Despite these criticisms, this was still an enjoyable game with an engaging storyline. I would definitely recommend it to serious point-and-click fans, especially if they grew up during the 80s.

Gr8 game BUT... 👎🏽

This game is great, I thoroughly enjoyed the story and found the puzzles entertaining to solve. However at times there are not enough clues that will help you solve certain puzzles *SPOILERS...kinda*
For example: When Delores needs a specific tube type to enter into the factory you need to give her shirt with the tube design to the tube shop. There is absolutely no clue to this, and I had no reason to think that this is what I needed to do. Towards the end of the game I found myself constantly calling the Hint Hotline. The ending was also very lackluster, leaving loose ends. The other thing... THE PRICE. I was expecting this game to be WAYY longer. For $10??! This was about a 2 -4 hour long game depending on how good you are at solving the puzzles. There’s also tons of items that are completely useless, certain story plots that are never answered, and once you beat it the first time it’s kind of pointless. I have no reason to keep the game, and I’m kind of disappointed I payed $10 for a one time use game :/

If you’re willing to pay the price the story and game play is great. But maybe save your money and buy two puzzle style games instead of just the one. Unfortunately why’ll I enjoyed it, I wouldn’t recommend, wish I saved my money

Developer Response ,

Hello, sorry to hear that you found the game short and that there were some aspects that you didn't like. We're a bit surprised that you were able to finish it this quickly, since a full playthrough in Hard Mode usually takes people around 10 hours or more. There's also the option to play the game in Casual Mode first and then in Hard Mode later (the Hard Mode adds new elements to the story and puzzles), so we think that also increases the potential replay value and overall length of the gameplay.
