Adventure Game Thimbleweed Park turning to puzzles




The game Thimbleweed Park creators of Maniac Mansion and Monkey Island is a parody of Twin Peaks, The X-Files and True Detective, with a sauce Stephen King. The makers go back to the roots of the classic point ‘n’ click game.

That says art director Gary Winnick in an interview at GamesRadar. The authors think that the charm and innocence that exudes the graphic style with large pixels and simple icons, players can easily fill out the details yourself let imagination.

The story is about two detectives who find a corpse, just outside the Thimbleweed Park. The town was once full of successful companies and was overloaded with tourists, it is now a shadow of its former glory. A place where no one will be looking at, but everyone always encounters, according to the authors.

The player can have fun with five different characters, including a cursed clown: Ransome, who lives in an abandoned circus grounds and never makeup can remove. Besides what “normal” people there is also Franklin, a dead man who just woke up on the thirteenth floor of a hotel. The game is spiced with puzzles, just as before.

It must be a tough game with puzzles. In the interview, Gilbert says he thinks games have become easier. That’s not necessarily bad, especially because games have become much more casual, but there are also people who like difficult games like, especially in the Adventure genre, according to Gilbert.

The developers say that they have learned from their past games like Maniac Mansion and The Cave, when it comes to how to tell a story well, but the feel should be an adventure from the eighties.
