Thimbleweed Park gets another major update includes in-game hint line, more chatter, and on sale

The updates to Thimbleweed Park are still coming, and this time with some major additions like new chatter and in-game hint line that you call to get help where you’re at in the game.

From Press email:

In a town like Thimbleweed Park, a dead body is the least of your problems — especially now that the game has received a big content update! The new version is available now on Steam and will be added soon as a free update to Xbox and other stores.

See below for what’s new, and check out this tell-all blog post from designer Ron Gilbert for more details:

New In-Game Hint Line
Before there were walkthroughs and Let’s Plays, there were telephone hint lines: 1-900 numbers you could call when you were desperately stuck in an adventure game. They cost $2 per minute. Mom and Dad were not thrilled when the phone bill showed up. Ahh, the good old days.

Today Thimbleweed Park brings back this classic feature with the HintTron 3000™. Dial 4468 (HINT) from any in-game phone to get context-sensitive hints for the part where you’re stuck. No more quitting out of the game to find a walkthrough! No more banging your head against the wall! Best of all, the HintTron 3000™ is absolutely free — no outrageous phone bills from MMucasFlem!

More Chatter
With 16,000 lines of dialogue and 47 speaking roles, Thimbleweed Park was never skimpy in the voice department. But why stop there? As of today’s update, the four living main characters have even more to say!

Thimbleweed Park’s lead actors recently returned to the studio to record a bunch of new conversations amongst themselves. Now when two playable characters are sharing the screen, they can talk to each other instead of awkwardly standing around. Why? Because enough players asked for it and the team thought it was a good idea. Sometimes that’s all it takes.

Now on Sale
Normally $19.99, Thimbleweed Park is on sale for $15.99 as part of the Steam Summer Sale! Through July 5, save 20% on the game called “deep and memorable,” by IGN, “a joy to play,” by Game Informer, and “one of the best games of 2017” by Ron Gilbert’s mom.
