Thimbleweed Park Dev Talking to Nintendo About Switch Port; Coming to PS4 After Three Month Xbox One Exclusive Period
Developer Terrible Toybox’s — which is notably led by Maniac Mansion creator Ron Gilbert and LucasFilm Games veteran Gary Winnick — highly anticipated point-and-click adventure game Thimbleweed Park is set to release sometime during the first quarter on Xbox One, PC, Mac, and Linux. The game also has been confirmed for iOS, Android, and PS4 as well, but a release window for these platforms are still unknown.
In addition to the all of the above mentioned platforms, it has now been revealed that the developer is planning to bring the game to the Nintendo Switch as well.
The news comes from Ron Gilbert, who told Gamereactor the following:
“We’re gonna be at Xbox One at launch, Microsoft has a three month console exclusive. As soon as that period is up, we port it to the PlayStation 4, and I would love to be on Nintendo.”
“Nintendo is not particularly good at working with small developers and publishers initially, they like to go out to the big publishers and after a year they let smaller things in. We are definitely talking to Nintendo and as soon as we can do, we will port it.”
As you can see from the above quote, Gilbert also detailed that the game is console exclusive to Xbox One for three months, and that once this period is over it plans to bring the game to PS4. Whether this means it will release as soon as this period is over, or whether it will begin the port then, is unclear. It’s likely the aforementioned, but that’s just my best guess.
