Game Info

Lost along a dusty stretch of highway, the town of Thimbleweed Park once boasted an opulent hotel, a vibrant business district and the state’s largest pillow factory, but now it teeters on the edge of oblivion and continues to exist for no real reason. It’s a town that makes you itch and your skin crawl. It’s a place no one ever looks for, but everyone seems to find. Thimbleweed Park is the curious story of two washed up detectives investigating a dead body found in the river just outside of town. It’s a game where you switch between five playable characters while uncovering the dark, satirical and bizarre world of Thimbleweed Park.

8.5/10

“You certainly get your $20’s worth out of Thimbleweed Park. The voice cast doesn’t elevate the script in the way they always did in the LucasArts “talky” days, but an enjoyable, self-referential story and hundreds of puzzles to solve make it worthy of a place on your shelf next to Maniac Mansion and Monkey Island.”

4/5 stars

“Thimbleweed Park has sharp, often hilarious writing and convoluted puzzles to spare. All in all, it’s a welcome return to the point-and-click adventure, even if it ends up feeling a bit like a b-side to the classics before it.”

“A real pleasure for point and click lovers. It’s not only superb on its own merit, but also as a homage to the great classics of the genre.”
