Lost along a dusty stretch of highway, this proud town once boasted an opulent hotel, a vibrant business district, and the state’s largest pillow factory, but now stinks of a desperate longing to be what it once was.
A body has been found in the river, bloated and pixelated from the decay of a death come too soon. Agents Ray and Reyes arrive and are immediately suspicious of each other’s intentions, then a couple of pigeons show up and start talking about the signals and it only gets weirder from there.
A cursed clown, a disinherited game designer, and the ghost of pillow salesmen join the story and add their own complications.
Play and switch between all five characters as you explore the vast, strange, and manipulative world of Thimbleweed Park while unraveling a dark and humorous neo-noir mystery.
Solve puzzles dreamed up by the brains of Ron Gilbert and Gary Winnick, creators of the original point & click adventure game, Maniac Mansion.
Coming in early 2017 to Windows, Mac, Xbox One, and Linux. iOS, Android, and other platforms will follow soon after.
Behold the latest trailer for the game to be henceforth known as Thimbleweed Park in all the lands.
Play Thimbleweed Park!
OK, not really, that was kind of a click-bait opening. But you can play a small section of the game to help us with compatibility testing. And by small piece, I mean just a few rooms you can walk around and see if the game runs on your hardware. There might be one puzzle. It's unlikely there will be any spoilers, but if seeing great art is a spoiler, you might want to steer clear.
We're going to start small, only sending out a few copies, then slowly open it up to around one hundred people over the next week unless something goes horribly wrong, in that case we'll just pretend like the whole thing never happened.

Why don't you just release a demo? I can hear you saying that.
The reason is we don't have a demo that tells the right story. The only thing we have is the Ransome demo shown at PAX and the fan events. It doesn't really tell the story of Thimbleweed Park. A good public demo is like a good movie trailer, it should entice you and leave you with unanswered questions. The Ransome demo does none of that, it can also mislead people into thinking this is a game about a clown, which it is not.
