Gamescom and PAX 2016

Happy to announce we'll be at Gamescom next week and PAX west in a few weeks.  The Thimbleweed Park demo will be fully playable at both events.

At Gamescom, Thimbleweed Park will be showing in the Microsoft consumer booth (hall 8) on the Xbox One. Our lead tester, Robert Megone, will be there to help and answer any questions you have about the game, like: "Rob? Are you worried about the game being too awesome?"

Microsoft inviting us to show Thimbleweed Park in their booth shows a lot of support for the game.

At PAX, Thimbleweed Park will be shown on PC and will have multiple stations for pointing and clicking.  As PAX gets closer, we'll have more information.

OK, back to the salt mines.  Kickstarter backers demanded more salt.

Wish I could be there...

OK then. Salt it is. I'll check with my Cardiologist on how much I can take. You guys can have as much as you want. Salt. I like that you are salting away. Do it. More. Don't hurry, but don't dawdle. Awesome. Love you (I in California where it's legal). :-)

Does the demo build include voice acting?

Ron Gilbert - Aug 10, 2016 at 19:32
No. We won't go into the studio until the is full text lock.

I hope you can make it to PAX Australia too!

Ron Gilbert - Aug 10, 2016 at 19:50
I will be at PAX AUS, but we're not showing the game, at least not formally.  We'll let you know as it gets closer.

Will there be a public demo build at some point? Also, the demo versions to older games such as Indiana Jones 4 and Monkey Island -- what were they originally for, and when were they released publicly?

Ron Gilbert - Aug 10, 2016 at 20:04
No, there won't be a public demo.

Mattias Cedervall - Aug 10, 2016 at 20:40
Robert is probably worried about that!

Martin Wendt - Aug 11, 2016 at 02:03
Really looking forward to the demo and meeting Rob!
There will be some adventuring in the retro corner as well :-)

Caren and the Tangled Tentacles is so amazing! Just what I needed to keep me sane while waiting for Thimbleweed.

AWESOME! Is Robert going to be there at Wednesday (GamesCom) when it's business only. I would like to shake hands. :)

Zak Phoenix McKracken - Aug 11, 2016 at 02:54
Pardon me for the question, will Robert Megone be at GamesCon all the days ( August 18th - 21st) or not?
Thank you, I'm organizing my travel, maybe I'll pay a visit on Saturday and Sunday.

Hey Ron, I am contemplating visiting cologne, to show up at the Adventure Treff Party. Will you be there as well?

Zak Phoenix McKracken - Aug 11, 2016 at 08:58

Tickets sold out.
Available only afternoon tickets (starting from 2 PM)

Wait a minute!  You're just taking vacations, and using the conventions as your cover!

Back to the mines!!!

I like this new blog post rate. Keeps me awake.

Carlo Valenti - Aug 11, 2016 at 13:06
(@Zak: no, I'm not coming to Cologne to play the game.)

Carlo Valenti - Aug 11, 2016 at 13:09
I liked the idea of the "That's a wrap!" party for the game;
it's kinda difficult for me to come,  but, who knows.

Will you be at gamescom, Sir?

Ron Gilbert - Aug 11, 2016 at 14:21
I will not be there, but Robert will be.

Firebird - Aug 11, 2016 at 16:06
Nice, I'm looking forward to get my hands on the game at Gamescom!
Will we have the chance to get some goodies to keep us exited? ;-)

My first ever visit to Seattle (from UK) coincides with PAX West, but tickets sold out so quickly and I was gutted :(  I really wanted to go as anticipated TP would be there.

Maybe I'll try and peer through a window or something.

Zak Phoenix McKracken - Aug 15, 2016 at 05:48
It sounds like a begging for a TP member team to allow you to enter :-)

Katie Parsons - Aug 15, 2016 at 06:28
No, just commiserating over the bitter irony ;)

Fred Leo - Aug 20, 2016 at 14:33
I was a Gamescom.  So sad the game was in a 18+ area.  As I was with my son, i did not had chance to try it !  But i can't wait to be early 2017 to have it !
