Our backer page is temporally down while we upgrade to a new snazzier backer page! Is the anticipation killing you? It should be!

What sizes are the t-shirts available in?  I'm a larger guy... :)

Skylo - May 29, 2015 at 17:23
Will the boxes be the same length, height, width, 'girth', (dimensions) as the classic SCUMM games back in the 90s were sold?
Those boxes are still treasured gems. It must have been those dimensions!

tyler tuthill - Jun 08, 2015 at 14:14
Just curious, why are the t-shirts so expensive? Surely you could get a company like epic pants or something to print out a bunch of them at a better cost (and available in more sizes) ? I'd totally buy one, but I can't afford $150 for a shirt...

Maybe start a store ? Pint glasses, shirts, posters, etc... I know I'd totally rock Thimbleweed park gear.

Ron Gilbert - Jun 08, 2015 at 14:24
We're not selling t-shirts, they are a reward for backing the project and helping us make a great game.

Stuuuuuu - Oct 18, 2015 at 09:47
How about fine leather jackets? Are you selling any of those?

carinhoxapo - Oct 23, 2015 at 06:25
What about chainsaw fuel? do you have that in store? it could be useful in earth (i already have that on mars)

Lopez - Apr 19, 2016 at 14:08
hah now thats what im talkin about you are a mighty jokester thanks for all the memories i can recall an era in the quantum realm not so tangential to my own. it was a dreary afternoon sometime in late february when the fleet of unredeemed nephrologists asked for a whiskey on the rocks. not much of a drinker myself so i set out for the twisted beaten v8 juice saturated path they call INTERSTATE 666

Eru - Jun 28, 2015 at 09:56
Will you send any sort of written/certificate absolution for for pirating Maniac Mansion or Monkey Island as a kid?

That would be awesome!!

I already purchased it but it would be great to have a certificate hanged on the wall ;-)

Keep on with the good work!!!

Nikos - Jul 08, 2015 at 10:31
How much to make it open source?

Ron Gilbert - Jul 08, 2015 at 10:42
One Billion dollars. MMWHAHAHAHAH!

Nikos - Jul 08, 2015 at 12:20
It's gonna take me some time to gather that. Until then, I bought a pack for a billion less, and wish to thank you for your games. I started computing with them.

Ivan Braidi - Jan 15, 2016 at 15:18
You're a fucking genius!! XD

Pablo - Aug 04, 2015 at 15:28
I pirated Monkey Island 1 and 2 as a child (I know, shame on me) so I'm trying to make it up by buying the Collector's Edition, the only problem is that I live in Argentina, is there any chance the rewards are shipped internationally?

By the way, just finished hearing Ron Gilbert on the Retronauts podcast and I gotta say, as a hobbyist game designer and programmer, every time I hear him talk about his projects with such passion it really inspires me to go back and continue working on my projects no matter how tired I might be from my other job. Ron, you are really an inspiration and I hope I can ever do a game that is as good as any of yours.

Lee Allsopp - Aug 05, 2015 at 14:43
Is there going to be any opinions to chose a downloaded version for Xbox one

Eos - Aug 12, 2015 at 16:50
Will the digital "copy" just be in english or multi-lingual.... red there'll be a translation from Boris! :D


Ron Gilbert - Aug 12, 2015 at 16:55
The game will be in English, French, German, Spanish and Italian. The voice recording will only be in English.

Bogdan Barbu - Aug 22, 2015 at 03:18
I can do a Romanian translation for free. And I can do a good job of it, too.

syn - Aug 17, 2015 at 07:17
Will Mark Ferrari paint the available Poster ? and will it be the style the old Monkey Island Poster were ? Hope you can answer me this question :-)

Soong - Aug 18, 2015 at 03:47
Is there a way to use these widgets to upgrade my original pledge (to possibly get the coffeetable book)?

Rob Miles - Aug 21, 2015 at 10:28
I'm on the same page as Lee Allsop... I'd love to support you and essentially pre-order the game but I'd be holding out for the Xbox One version. Will you be adding a widget for this?

Ron Gilbert - Aug 21, 2015 at 10:37
The Xbox version can not be sold directly by us or given away as a reward. Microsoft has no way to support this. I've asked. This works for Steam because Steam will give us keys for free to give to backers. Microsoft doesn't even have a way to buy keys in bulk to give to backers, so even if we wanted to take the hit of paying for our own game, there isn't a way to do it. I wish there was. The iOS App Store has the same issue.

Rob Miles - Aug 27, 2015 at 08:19
Ahh that's a shame but fair enough. You know what though? I played the original Monkey Islands on the PC (not pirated for the sake of clarity!) so I'm going to go for the fully authentic follow up experience and darn well go ahead and throw my money in the pot now! I love spontaneous decisions :-)

stfns - Aug 22, 2015 at 07:23
Never pay more than 20 bucks for a computer game™ :D

Grafekovic - Aug 24, 2015 at 23:53
Ha! Those guys wouldn't know a good story even if they paid fifty bucks for it!™

Ema - Aug 23, 2015 at 17:20
First of all:

thank you, guys. For everything. Sounds so weird read this by a serious adult man (and not so geek, too! :-))) ), but my childhood owns you a lot. Still today, every time I meet my brother or my sister, usually when we talk we use some citations from your works. Imagine the surprise when we realized that what we considered a somehow private memory was loved by so many people! Imagine the surprise after years, when we found our old floppies and run them through Dosbox and ScummVM.... then the special edition came, then... this!
I want to be in it, but I have some questions:

1) I understand that the physical copy of the game will be available in september. Ok, fine. But I think that I will be able to download my digital copy immediately, am I right?
2) I see that is not possible to give as reward the digital copy on the iOS store, but just the digital copy on Steam. Ok, but the copy on Steam will be just for PC, or there will also be the Mac versions? I love when I can buy on steam one game, and then I can play it on both platforms.

PS: Ok, I pirated MI1 in 1990. The first EGA version. Wow. Piracy was part of the pleasure of the whole thing. When I finished the game one year later (no internet, so no solutions available, and I was a kid!) I decided I had to buy it original. I remember the exact moment. It was late night, obviously. Finally I finished the game. And the game suggested me I had to sleep! Wow, hypnotized by that purple flshing text, I told myself "Ok, time to break the porcelain pig..."
So i got a CD copy as soon as it was released, with an exceptional CD soundtrack, and in VGA... When I bought it, I even didn't imagine that I found such a gem. Then, recently, I bought through steam the SE. So, I thought I was quite redeemed... But it seems I was wrong. My conscience had to wait for TP... :-)

Sorry for the long post, but I discovered the TP project only today and I'm quite excited. Thanks again.

Pablo - Aug 28, 2015 at 14:16

Sorry to insist with my previous question but I really want that collector's edition.

Are the rewards shipped internationally?


Bogdan Barbu - Sep 03, 2015 at 18:02
Can we have your IBAN? I don't want to make a PayPal account just for this but I do want to support you. (I was initially going to wait until the game was released to make sure the money went to your pockets rather than into development, thus maximizing the chance for future projects but, having read the post about the current state of the game, I figured I'd do my part.)

BoTToX - Sep 04, 2015 at 22:26
Hmmm. paypal or amazonpayment ....
Sorry i dont want to create an account just for one time.

Nicolas - Sep 05, 2015 at 20:21
Unfortunately, my parents did not want me to do a paypal account.
Are there any other way of payment ?
I love your games, and I would not miss this one : (

Giant Monkey Head - Sep 08, 2015 at 08:26
Hey, are as me a under-18 gilbert fan?

Jammet - Sep 06, 2015 at 19:58
I'd also like to know if there is a way to upgrade my place :) so that I can still be in the phone book as a backer, but also get the boxed copy, maybe even signed!

Marcel - Sep 26, 2015 at 12:44
You should translate it to catalan too! Catalonia, the new state in Europe.

Grafekovic - Sep 28, 2015 at 06:39
Not true. I asked my spanish teacher.

Yo mismo - Oct 04, 2015 at 07:37
If it is not translated to Chinese, Ukrainian, Romanian, Greek or Bulgarian, why should it be translated to catalan? They may also translate the game to arapahoe the thing is that they may want to reach the most people using the least languages available, and those languages they picked most probably cover as much population with the least languages they can afford (with just Spanish -2nd spoken language in the world with 410 million people- and English -3rd one with 360-400million- they have covered around 800 million people).

When 4 million people in catalonia won't speak Spanish (it won't take long to achieve that) they may think about translating to catalan, but I'm afraid chinese goes first (1st language spoken in the world with 1.2 Billion) and Ukrainian (30 million), Romanian (24 million), Greek (13 million), Bulgarian (7.8 million)....

justme - Nov 13, 2015 at 02:49
That's up to Europe to decide, not you. And Europe says "get the fuck out'.

Francesco Favia - Oct 09, 2015 at 14:03

I want to "donate" now, I could not do it before.
is it not possible anymore to buy the option that allows you to have your recorder voice and name the game?

Grazie mille.

Andrea - Oct 16, 2015 at 17:07
Are you interested in an AmigaOS4 port?   We could help you 😀

carlinhoxapo - Oct 23, 2015 at 09:38
Hey! i wanna contribute using bitcoins, do you have an address?

Doquito - Oct 26, 2015 at 08:10
I would convert my tier1 to Park Collector's i do?

Leandro - Nov 10, 2015 at 11:29
Hi! Were you able to do this? Best Regards!

Doquito - Nov 23, 2015 at 10:20
No!!! I could send money different by Paypal??

Leandro - Nov 06, 2015 at 11:30
Hi! If I got the $350 package when the campaign was running, is it possible to upgrade to the $500 today? Thanks a lot!

Sven - Nov 17, 2015 at 13:53
Will you release a version for the Atari ST?

Jeepika - Nov 18, 2015 at 05:58
What is the 'purchase as gift' option for?  Thanks in advance.

BoTToX - Nov 19, 2015 at 20:31
I really wish to take the collector edition, but a box with only a dvd inside... : /    : /
150$ is really to expensive ! It's to bad  for people like me who like to have the physical version of their games.

Somenone - Nov 21, 2015 at 07:26
@Ron: I've backed on Kickstarter the poster reward. Is it possible to buy that poster via this page (and paypal) *again* to get *two* of the fantastic signed posters? Or the box to get the poster *and* the box? (Please note, that you don't have to "merge" the payments in your Excel spreadsheet this way. Just ship them in separate parcels.)

P.S.: The posters are fantastic, aren't they?

Pedro - Dec 10, 2015 at 06:12
I've been trying to purchase the collector edition, the game in a box, like the old days, and i can't do it.
No paypal, and no Amazon Payments. Imposible!!!!
I want to support this game, and i can't do it.
I live in Spain, and if there is another way to give you my money, i really want to do it, please tell me how.
Please, contact with me via email, and let me help this awesome game.

Ron Gilbert - Dec 10, 2015 at 11:29
Currently the only way to pay is via Paypal. It's way too complicated for to accept payments directly. We are going to be changing how we collect pledges around the beginning of the year, and hopefully some new options will become available.

Pedro - Jan 27, 2016 at 05:01
Finally, it´s done. One Thimbleweed Park box purchased.
Against all the obstacles it´s done.
Wooooooooah !

BoTToX - Dec 10, 2015 at 11:20
What's the content of the Thimbleweed Park Collector's Edition ?
Juste a box and a CD ?

Ron Gilbert - Dec 10, 2015 at 11:30
The box contains a printed manual, CD and some kind of feelie™.

Bottox - Dec 14, 2015 at 11:47
Ok, thanks !
It's mine !!!

Sharlatan - Dec 20, 2015 at 17:45
I'd also love to upgrade my pledge from the kickstarter campaign from 50$ to 150$.
Would be mighty swell if there was any way to do this!

Laserschwert - Dec 22, 2015 at 16:55
Apart from the physical game/manual/feelie does the Collector's Edition box come only with the digital copy of the game, or also the digital soundtrack? I'd love to print out the CD-cover and add a soundtrack CD to the box...

Stuart - Dec 29, 2015 at 16:47
Is it not possible to donate and get your name in this phone book? Dammit a really want to be in the phone book and I have just discovered about this game. Very excited!

DarkMoonX - Feb 13, 2016 at 13:44
is still possible to get the name on the phone book ?

PETER - Feb 20, 2016 at 05:35
Where do i throw my money?

Ivan Braidi - Feb 23, 2016 at 13:03
Sorry Ron, but I think that this page is old and not correctly updated.

I think that it should link to this one:

Even because on this page there is no mean to reach the correct page.

Hope this could be helpful :)


BoTToX - Feb 24, 2016 at 23:54
Hmmmm... this page don't work !!!
Need to back !!!

Sundance - Feb 25, 2016 at 18:02
Oh no, the backer page is gone. No, i have to burn my money.

Ron Gilbert - Feb 25, 2016 at 18:35
It will be back up in a week or so and there will be more places to spend your money!

Sundance - Feb 29, 2016 at 17:08
Sounds great.

Bon Antza - Mar 01, 2016 at 12:57
You run a weird business. I have all this money but there's no place to put them in here.

Just joking, no rush, only wanted to say hi!

Sundance - Mar 02, 2016 at 17:17
What should i say ... my anticipation is killing me! :)

Gromish - Apr 07, 2016 at 06:03
I'll like to be a backer.
I don't want to play on desktop.
I'll like to play your game on Android platform.

Can't you sell your game as an app placeholder on the playstore by NOW?

The app (apps) could cost the same price of kickstarter steps and could give access to t-shirts etc...
When ready, release it with an update...

Easy :D

Michael Decker - Apr 28, 2016 at 12:21
Only a manual an a box for the collectors Edition? So lets talk about some extras...
No 5 1/4"
I don´t need it.
and a 3 1/2" Disk?
I don´t need it.
a CD with the game.
I don´t need it.
I think I don´t need the game....

Come on guy. put some things in this Box. There have to be several data media, a phone book, a manual copy protection and so things...

And thank you Ron Gilbert. A was a bit afraid to play Maniac Mansion at first (i was 8 years) but your games has changed my life...
I think i

kuteninja - Oct 03, 2016 at 23:56
Hello, I've just found this website and noticed that I should be able to back the project before it goes out... although this section has been on a temporary hold since February apparently... is the backer system ever coming back or I'm just too late to the party?

Ron Gilbert - Oct 04, 2016 at 00:00
That is an old link, the new one is:

But, unfortunately, we are no longer accepting backers. The game will be for sale in early 2017.
