Thimbleweed Park gets weird, murder investigation point & click adventure on August 22nd for PS4, September for Switch
From Press Email:
Four months into the Thimbleweed Park murder investigation, the oddball residents of this remote town still aren’t too bothered by that dead body pixelating under the bridge. Why not? Nintendo Switch and PlayStation 4 owners will soon find out!
- As revealed on the PlayStation Blog, the PS4 version will release August 22 as a download from the PlayStation Store. The PS4 controls will be similar to the existing gamepad controls with a few added refinements that take advantage of the DualShock 4 Controller’s unique features.
- On Nintendo Switch, Thimbleweed Park will support both Joy-Con controllers and touch screen controls so players can easily switch between tabletop, handheld, and TV modes. We don’t have a release date nailed down for the Nintendo eShop yet but expect it to be in September. Until then, here’s a sneak peek to whet your appetite: https://www.youtube.com/watch?
In addition to these new platforms, Thimbleweed Park is available for Windows, Mac, Linux, and Xbox One, and in development for iPhone/iPad and Android. Learn more at http://www.thimbleweedpark.com

About Thimbleweed Park
A haunted hotel, an abandoned circus, a burnt-out pillow factory, toilets that run on vacuum tubes… in Thimbleweed Park, a dead body is the least of your problems. Five people with nothing in common have been drawn to this odd, rundown town. They don’t know it yet but they’re deeply connected. And they’re being watched.
Uncover the surreal secrets of this strange town in a modern mystery adventure from Ron Gilbert and Gary Winnick, the creators of Monkey Island and Maniac Mansion. The deeper into Thimbleweed Park you go, the weirder it gets.
