"Where Did I Put That Iconic Point N Click Video Game?"

Imagine you found a floppy disk in the bottom drawer of an old desk that had't seen the light of day for 20 years….
Somehow you get this disk to boot up and are presented with the title screen for a game called Thimbleweed Park…
When you start playing, it plays just like one of the classic LucasArts point n click adventure games!
In fact it IS ONE OF THE CLASSIC LucasArts point n click adventure games!!! Only it's going to be made in the her and now!!

The Ron & Gary Show!

Ron Gilbert and Gary Winnick of immense LucasArts fame are making Thimbleweed Park happen…


Thimbleweed Park is the story of two detectives called in to investigate a dead body found in a river just outside of the town....
In true Maniac Mansion style you will be able to switch between five characters while investigating the dark eerie world of Thimbleweed Park.
"Thimbleweed, Pillow Capital Of THE WORLD!"


Here's what the Kickstarter page says about the town of Thimbleweed......
"Lost along a dusty stretch of highway, the town of Thimbleweed Park once boasted an opulent hotel, a vibrant business district and the state’s largest pillow factory, but now teeters on the edge of oblivion and continues to exist for no real reason. 
It’s a town that makes you itch and your skin crawl. It’s a place no one ever looks for, but everyone seems to find. "


God Gave Point N Click To Ya!

Thimbleweed Park will be a new game made in the classic style of point n clicks from the golden era of the genre….

Ron & Gary are using their Kickstarter campaign to evoke all the memories of the classic era of point n click adventures when we all went on those epic journeys with the LucasArts characters.

The campaign has been super successful so far with the goal being reached and exceeded in a matter of days!

Ron Gilbert was quoted as saying,
“I am at a loss for words. 
The support has been overwhelming and it's making us giddy,”
“Before launching this Kickstarter, Gary and I debated endlessly if people would want a game that felt like it was made in 1987. 

A game made at the beginning of the golden era of point & click adventures. I think we have our answer. All 10,000+ of them.”

So Where Do YOU Come In On This?



Well, targets have been reached and it's now all about being a part of something MASSIVE in the Retrogaming community. 

This project is made for us retrogaming geeks and therefore it needs to be backed by all of us Point N Clickers who yearn for more new point n click beautifully crafted adventures from the masters of the genre....

Watch the video and head over to the Kickstarter page to find out more about the eerie town of THIMBLEWEED PARK......
