Thimbleweed Park

Thimbleweed Park is the story of a town where a dead body is the least of your problems.

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 bitter heiress, 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.

Podcast Delay

Sep 25, 2016

I caught a bad cold last week that I am just now getting over.  Due to feeling like crap, and having a voice to match, we didn't record the Friday Questions podcast. We'll record it on Monday and I'll have it edited and posted by Tuesday.

Sorry for the inconvenience.


I'm feeling better. We recorded the podcast yesterday. I need to fly to Argentina tomorrow, so I'll edit it on the plane and upload it when I get there. Scrambling to get everything done before leave.
