Today, developer Terrible Toybox — which is notably headed by Maniac Mansion and The Secret of Monkey Island creator Ron Gilbert and LucasFilm Games veteran Gary Winnick — announced that its critically-acclaimed point-and-click mystery adventure game, Thimbleweed Park, is coming to PS4 on August 22nd, after releasing on PC, Mac, Linux, and Xbox One back in March.
A rabbit hole of murder and mystery inspired by modern classics like Twin Peaks and X-Files, Thimbleweed Park follows agents Ray and Reyes as they investigate a body found in the river just outside the town of Thimbleweed Park. Playing through the game, players can freely switch between the two them and solve puzzles and find out who murdered the poor guy under the bridge.
However, things then get weird, as you soon realize there is something going on in Thimbleweed Park that is much deeper than simple murder. Agents Ray and Reyes are soon joined by Ransome the clown, Delores (a wannabe game designer), and Franklin (a dead pillow salesman) as they try and navigate the mystery they find themselves in.
Kickstarted in 2014, Thimbleweed Park costs $19.99 USD and in my opinion is a must-play for any fan of point-and-click adventure games or any gamer who enjoys a good story with great writing.
Thimbleweed Park is also poised to release on mobile devices and Switch sometime in the future. If you haven’t already, be sure to peep our review of the game where we awarded it a strong 8 out of 10.
