Quite literally selling like hot cakes…
Thimbleweed Park was born thanks to a (very) successful Kickstarter campaign back in 2014. Designed by Ron Gilbert and Gary Winnick, the title is actually a spiritual successor to previous games made by the duo – Maniac Mansion, and The Secret of Monkey Island – which were released in 1987 and 1990 respectively. The nods are obvious – the graphics and gameplay are reminiscent of games of this time – and whilst I never had the chance to play those games myself, a quick look online will tell you that players are falling head-over-heels with nostalgia. So far, so good, then.
Ron Gilbert has announced via Twitter that his game, Thimbleweed Park, will be releasing on the Nintendo Switch next week.
The official Twitter account for the game has revealed that it will indeed be hitting Switch in September.
