Release Date!

by Ron Gilbert
Feb 27, 2017

We had a big meeting this morning and decided that we should announce the release date.

So set your calendar reminders, make sure you've got your "I'm starting to feel sick" routines prepped for the day before release...

You'll be able to play Thimbleweed Park on Thursday, March 30th!!!!!

The game will be released on Mac, Windows, Linux and Xbox One.  Other platforms will follow in a few months.

That is all. Grab a goodie bag on your way out.

- Ron



Eric Jacobsen - Feb 27, 2017 at 14:12
Which platforms is this regarding?

Big Red Button - Feb 27, 2017 at 14:14
Windows, Xbox One, Linux and Mac.

Grogmiester - Feb 27, 2017 at 14:15
All platforms, more or less.

Big Red Button - Feb 27, 2017 at 14:19
iOS, Android and possible other platforms will follow a few months later.

Sven Höchenberger - Apr 13, 2017 at 02:47

Fin C - Feb 27, 2017 at 14:23
If you missed the answer to this in the post you might find some of the puzzles in the game hard ;)

Michael Hoffmann - Feb 27, 2017 at 18:05
At least now we know who the easy mode is for... :-D

Eric Jacobsen - Feb 28, 2017 at 12:54
The post was edited to add the list of platforms ,,,

Eric Jacobsen - Feb 27, 2017 at 14:12
Which platforms is this regarding?

Lord Gaga - Feb 27, 2017 at 14:32
C64 and Amiga. Atari ST port coming later this year.

Big Red Button - Feb 27, 2017 at 14:35
There is a 99 % likelihood of ports for NES and Game Boy. This depends on the sales of both platforms over the next months.

Lord Gaga - Feb 27, 2017 at 14:58
What about that fancy "Super" NES everyone is talking about?

Schala - Feb 27, 2017 at 15:42
OK, Lord Gaga and Bid Red Button, you made me totally crack up with your answers :)

Schala - Feb 27, 2017 at 15:52
And yes, that's supposed to be BIG Red Button.

Big Red Button - Feb 27, 2017 at 16:40
I'm glad to read this! :)

True Hare - Mar 29, 2017 at 16:37
But will the NES version be censored?

Häger - Feb 27, 2017 at 16:59

Nor Treblig - Feb 27, 2017 at 17:33
That's great!

Häger - Feb 27, 2017 at 18:02
Thx. :)

pumbaaa - Feb 28, 2017 at 04:55
I heard, if you put your Perlerbeads-module in the expansionport, you'll see at least some static pictures:

Sweet

Brian Ruff - Feb 27, 2017 at 14:12
Woo hoo!

Ariel - Feb 27, 2017 at 14:12
EXCELLENT NEWS!! I was expecting a May release!

Henk - Feb 27, 2017 at 14:13
Yes!!!!

Wait.... 2017 right?

Farooq - Feb 27, 2017 at 14:15

Zak Phoenix McKracken - Feb 27, 2017 at 15:10
Good question :-)

seguso - Feb 27, 2017 at 14:14
I need to live until then.

Randy "Dirt Farmer" Hofbauer - Feb 27, 2017 at 14:15
Thank God you didn't say April 1, Ron -- we'd be confused as to whether or not we should believe you!

Thanks for the buffer between the Switch/new Zelda -- one won't disturb the other!

Home stretch!

Randy "Dirt Farmer" Hofbauer - Feb 27, 2017 at 21:22
I've known Ron's distaste for April Fools Day, especially from the blog, but there's still always that worry ...

Jaap - Feb 27, 2017 at 14:16
Yaaaaaaayyy!

Laurent - Feb 27, 2017 at 14:16
Just in time for my birthday ! Thanks !!!

Marvin - Feb 27, 2017 at 14:18
Ohhhhh yeah!

Vragec111 - Feb 27, 2017 at 14:19
Aaaaaaaaaaaaa :faint:
SO EXCITED!!!

Emilie - Feb 27, 2017 at 14:21
Woohoo! Release date! Big meeting! Goodie bags!

urielz - Feb 27, 2017 at 14:22
Congrats to all the team. Can't wait to jump into TP! I'll surely miss this blog though.

Stefan - Feb 27, 2017 at 14:22
Yeah can't await to play this game :-)

Uwe - Feb 27, 2017 at 14:24
I expect the same productivity drop as if Stack Overflow is down for months.

spiffy - Feb 27, 2017 at 14:24
What's in the bags with the pink bow ties?

Conti - Feb 27, 2017 at 14:26
Oh, I am starting feeling sick...Hope I will feel better until end of March, err April.

vincent arsene - Feb 27, 2017 at 14:27
Cela va être super ;)
Congrats to all the team!

Danilo - Feb 27, 2017 at 14:27
That is fantastically wonderful! I plan to play the game straight until I finish it! Man, oh, man, I'm so hyped!

Tyler - Feb 27, 2017 at 14:30
WOOHOO! I got that marked on my Calendar. If we buy it now on your store will it be cheaper then getting it on Steam @ release date ? I don't have a lot of extra cash, but this baby is worth it.

Herr Stirz - Feb 27, 2017 at 14:30
Ye gods! I am partying hard!

Sebastian Angermann - Feb 27, 2017 at 14:30
YEAAAAH!!! *beeping* GREEEEAT!
I LOVE YOU GUYS :D

LeMonkey - Feb 27, 2017 at 14:31
I've been waiting for something like this for many years. A classic-styled point and click game from the minds who brought us the greatest entries in the genre. Thank you so much for doing this.

EduB - Feb 27, 2017 at 14:33
Excellent news! :D

joakim - Feb 27, 2017 at 14:34
This is fantastic news :) I feel like 20 again :D

Gonzalo - Feb 27, 2017 at 14:35
WOW ! WOW ! WOW !!!!!!

*jumps frenetically.
*my dog stares at me questioning his luck

Brian Small - Feb 27, 2017 at 14:36
A.  I'm assuming that is a tin foil cap (excellent).  B.  I can't wait for this scene in the game.  C.  March 31st now has a priority 1 item in my calendar.   Thank you all on the Thimbleweed Park team for making this happen!

Brian Small - Feb 27, 2017 at 14:37
I mean March 30th!

Giancarlo - Feb 27, 2017 at 14:37
YES! Can't wait to play it, you guys are AWESOME

doglobster - Feb 27, 2017 at 14:37
Amazing news! That's NEXT MONTH!

Soon we can say it's out THIS MONTH.

Really wasn't expecting it to be so soon. Excellent stuff!

BreanaHope - Feb 27, 2017 at 14:37
WOOOOO!!!!! This is awesome news!

Chris - Feb 27, 2017 at 14:39
Oh...my...bob! Thanks..THANKS! I hoped it will hit "stores" on my birthday, now I have to wait a few days more but yeah, that's AWESOME!
I had a feeling you are going to announce it today, was hitting refresh the whole day! You owe me a F5 key! :P

Have a great day!

Nightly regards from Germany

Chris aka foot_portrait

Krzysiek - Feb 27, 2017 at 14:40
The signals are strong today...

LeKris - Feb 27, 2017 at 14:42
Hell Yeah! I am so excited!
It is so awesome!

Will the game be released with all known translations on March 30th?

Nor Treblig - Feb 27, 2017 at 18:17
That's the plan (also see the Steam page). If on day of release the listed languages there change something didn't work out :o

Zak Phoenix McKracken - Feb 27, 2017 at 18:28
Oh, and according to the latest Kickstarter email, there will be also a Russian translation, later!

Big Red Button - Feb 27, 2017 at 18:37
That's not official yet, though. However, tons of unofficial fan-made translations will probably follow, after they have released a certain tool in a few months.

Fabio - Feb 27, 2017 at 14:43
Yeah!!!!
Congrat Ron and all the team!!!!
Great News!!!!!

Jochem - Feb 27, 2017 at 14:45
Awesome!

Katie Parsons - Feb 27, 2017 at 14:46
Woooo! Excellent news, can't wait!

I'm sick with excitement. Ron's probably sick with nerves.

Eduardo - Feb 27, 2017 at 14:47
You accomplished this. Thank you.
Having seen so many Kickstarters fail, I knew you would deliver it, and I already know the quality of your work, that is the reason for my gratitude.

Franz - Feb 27, 2017 at 14:47
Youpi!!!
Boss, the 30th of march  is my day out!!!!

darude - Feb 27, 2017 at 14:48
First some great Jolla and Sailfish OS news and now this! Good to be on Linux =)

Michael jahn - Feb 27, 2017 at 14:50
Really 1 more month to wait  :( i was hoping it was out on start or middle of march . Cant wait for it.....

Chris - Feb 27, 2017 at 14:55
You are complaining? Really?

Michael Jahn - Feb 28, 2017 at 05:17
Chris is not really a complain. :) i am happy that we get it soon  :) (complain was more a sarcastic way only )

tcmsurfer - Feb 27, 2017 at 14:56
Looking forward to it, thanks!!!

BTW,  what is in thw goodie bag?

Also: Please keep making posts and a podcast once in a while. You've grown on us like family!

Rob Miles - Feb 27, 2017 at 14:58
Uh-oh... that's the GF's Birthday weekend!! Thanks for the heads up, gives me enough time to book here a luxury spa break somewhere far away :-) Joking aside, can't wait to play the game

Nor Treblig - Feb 27, 2017 at 17:56
Wouldn't THAT (the game) make a great gift!

Mattias Cedervall - Feb 28, 2017 at 12:52
The Nerd is weak with you! :-( A true Nerdi doesn't have a girlfriend (unless she's inflatable or her surname is JPG)!

Erik - Feb 27, 2017 at 15:01
YES, YES, YES! Congratulations, I seriously can't wait. I will have so much fun, I'm gonna buy 10 copies, I promise.
Ron, is that you in the picture? 2nd from the left? ;)

Janski - Feb 27, 2017 at 15:01
Yeh,

So I immediately logged in to PledgeManager to see what's there, as I understood you needed further details from me. But as I didn't order any physical stuff, just the game and the Swear Jar, I guess I'm OK. When do you need to know what format/delivery platform I want to play my game on? If I had to say now, I'd say GOG would be my platform of choice.

Anyway, I'm so stoked about this. Thank you thank you thank you.

Ron Gilbert - Feb 27, 2017 at 15:06
Please direct these questions to support @ thimbleweedpark.com

Zak Phoenix McKracken - Feb 27, 2017 at 15:13
Great news!!
And now... press! press!! PRESS!!
Spread the word!!!

DZ-Jay - Feb 27, 2017 at 15:17
Woo-hoo!!

Just one question.  Will you support older versions of Mac OS X like the ones still named for cats?  Specifically, Mountain Lion?

I am allergic to Californian landmarks in operating system names...

    dZ.

Ron Gilbert - Feb 27, 2017 at 15:17
10.7 and above.

Jack Attack - Feb 27, 2017 at 15:19
Woo, Can't wait

Noah Stapleton - Feb 27, 2017 at 15:21
I'm so excited! I can't believe that's next month! Thank you so much for this info! Wouldn't that mean pre-orders would be opening up soon?

Mathias - Feb 27, 2017 at 15:24
Hey, I'm on holiday that day - you CAN'T be serious!

(One of those "selfie" agnostics from Berlin - also never reading Twitter ;-))

Ron Gilbert - Feb 27, 2017 at 15:26
OK everyone, we're delaying the launch until Mathias gets back.

Mathias - Feb 27, 2017 at 15:31
I'm back on Sunday (02.04.) - so no one has to wait indefinitely!

Tim Lammert - Feb 27, 2017 at 15:36
Ok Mathias, now you have a problem.
:)

Big Red Button - Feb 27, 2017 at 15:44
Are you a backer? I assume that Steam and GOG will anyway need a few additional days for unlocking the game for all backers. So, you might not miss anything with the current release date.

Mathias - Feb 27, 2017 at 15:52
I miss ALL the old Lucasarts Games I donated to a museum.

I thik, I'll take a day off tomorrow to visit "my" games.

Big Red Button - Feb 27, 2017 at 16:43
What an altruistic decision to donate them! Respect!

Nor Treblig - Feb 27, 2017 at 18:02
THOSE do not belong in a museum!! They are meant to be played!

Oh, and thanks for the delay (DIIIIEEEEE) :-)

Mathias - Feb 28, 2017 at 00:16
I've got (legit) copies of them all (mainly LA bundles).

Chris - Feb 27, 2017 at 15:36
You are gorgeous dude! :D

Zak Phoenix McKracken - Feb 27, 2017 at 17:33
We have waited for 2 years, even if we waits for further 2 days, it's the same.
Mathias: you can relax... but not too much!

miguelbaptista - Feb 27, 2017 at 17:55
What happens if Matias gets kidnapped ?
....
Please, look after yourself man.

Mathias - Feb 28, 2017 at 15:21
I'll sure do!

Tim Lammert - Feb 27, 2017 at 15:32
Awesome! That will get an early birthday present, Woohoo.

James Dean Martin Sheen - Feb 27, 2017 at 15:32
Ransome wears his finest bra to celebrate!!!

GaryE - Feb 27, 2017 at 15:56
Excellent, on my birthday too!
Do you know if it is going to be available on GOG on 30th?
Congratulations all involved.

Mike Chen - Feb 27, 2017 at 16:00
Is it possible to wait on the Kickstarter rewards download for other platforms (the eventual PS4 version)? Or does it have to be redeemed with launch platforms?

Ron Gilbert - Feb 27, 2017 at 16:06
The Kickstarter version is only the Mac, Windows and Linux.

Andi - Feb 28, 2017 at 07:06
Really?
After two years waiting, I can't even play the game on every plattform available?

Big Red Button - Feb 28, 2017 at 09:42
Don't underestimate the amount of work for budget planning, creating a proprietary engine, designing the contents (story and puzzles) of a complete game, play-testing it intensively, incl. bug-fixing, hosting this site and updating this blog regularly, promoting the game in different continents and make so many ports of the game. Every port has to be tested extensively until it can be released.

Simon Simon - Mar 01, 2017 at 00:38
The kickstarter reward platforms were 100% clear the whole time

Marcelo Ellmann - Mar 01, 2017 at 06:40
🤔🤔🤔 I was really excited about the prospect of playing it on the Xbox - no way to reconsider that for the backers?

Big Red Button - Mar 01, 2017 at 07:33
To my knowledge, the port for Xbox has not been made with money of backers, but with money of Microsoft, so there is a very good reason for excluding the Xbox port. Nonetheless, you can buy it. But, it can't be played via mouse.

Zak Phoenix McKracken - Mar 01, 2017 at 09:01
Exactly. We, backers, have contributed to the birth of Thimbleweed Park in its original concept (for Windows, Linux, Mac).
Only after eight months, in August 2015, Microsoft decided to bet on Thimbleweed Park.
Here is the post: https://blog.thimbleweedpark.com/xbox
For that reason, only the versions for Windows, Linux, Mac will be free for the backers who pledged for a copy of the game.

Steffen - Mar 01, 2017 at 10:26
Just for understanding right: Backers get the iOS/Android version as well, don't they? I know these versions will be released later on.
I personally will play at my PC but my kids love playing on tablets - so I am already excited getting TWP on Android someday.

Ron Gilbert - Mar 01, 2017 at 10:31
Only the Mac, Windows and Linux versions. iOS has no way to mass distribute keys. We would have to "buy" each copy and give it to backers, costing us for each one. Android is easier, but is that fair to iOS users?

Tim Lammert - Mar 01, 2017 at 16:00
That´s completely ok. We need a way to buy to 10 copies :)

Brian Small - Mar 01, 2017 at 16:10
It's a certainty I will buy the iOS version when it comes out to complement the backer copy.

Steffen - Mar 01, 2017 at 16:20
Regarding Android it's a pity! I was happy seeing the KS stretch goal reached cuz my kids like to play on the (Android) tablet.
And iOS? iOS user have to much money anyway, aren't they?   :-P

John Horn - Feb 27, 2017 at 16:02
Wow! Finally!  It's happening!

Brian Bagnall - Feb 27, 2017 at 16:04
That is some great news! Sooner than I thought. My calendar is marked.

J.A. Smith - Feb 27, 2017 at 16:10
Cannot wait! Just a little over a month away!

arvejeitor - Feb 27, 2017 at 16:13
Is still possible to modify our orders on Pledge Manager to add more goodies?

Ron Gilbert - Feb 27, 2017 at 16:15
No, adding new items has been locked for several months.

Darkstorm - Feb 27, 2017 at 16:29
Good timing, should just about be finished with zelda by then.

This is going to be a incredible couple of months gaming wise.

Mok Sho - Feb 27, 2017 at 16:33
YAAAAAAY best.news.cannot.wait.
Now start negotiations with Disney again for that MI license puhleeeaaase!!! 😍

Martin Wendt - Feb 27, 2017 at 16:35
Knowing your love for april fools, I hope there wont be a slight delay :-)
Personally, I dont mind the date very much. The great thing about great 2D pixel art and jokes that are not written in latin: they will never age!

Patrik Spacek - Feb 27, 2017 at 16:35
It looks like I should take some days off... :o)  and I can already see tons of longplay Thimbleweed videos overtaking YT at that weekend :o)

Tremis - Feb 27, 2017 at 16:38
Woohoo, I'll take that goody bag.

void55 - Feb 27, 2017 at 16:42
Hey! Great & fantastic news! Just need some more details: will there be a real package or will it be just a virtual download? If it's a real package, I guess we will be able to get it in France, do you know how much time the shipping will take? (a friend of mine has his birthday one week after the release and it would be a great present!) Finally,  will we be able to purchase it on the same platform as the merchandising? Just to know if I wait and make only one order on this one :) Thanks!  
And well done team!

Big Red Button - Feb 27, 2017 at 16:48
At first, it will be available as downloadable content only. But, some months later, there will also be a boxed edition.

void55 - Feb 27, 2017 at 17:47
Damn it! ^^ Well, I'll have to live with that, first buy the downloadable version (at least, I'll have it on time!), then the box! ;) Thanks for the info!

Big Red Button - Feb 27, 2017 at 18:01
You're welcome! ;)
It's a pity indeed, but, on the other hand, we support the developers this way, and every sold copy increases the likelihood for another adventure game by them.

Arto - Feb 27, 2017 at 16:46
Yes, we've got a hot date :)
At what time exactly?
I'm going to take a week off. Seriously.

Zak Phoenix McKracken - Feb 27, 2017 at 17:34
Ahah, I only that day off!

Arto - Feb 28, 2017 at 14:51
I have one week vacation starting March 31. Tactically I didn't want to start on 30th, as I don't know at what time the game will be released. I might have wasted a day of playtime ;)

Gabriel - Feb 27, 2017 at 16:49
oh, yeah, why do you don't release it on June 30 too. Said June 30? I'm wanna say September 30 or whatever. Anyway still remain 3 billion years for this

Jonny Bergstrom - Feb 27, 2017 at 16:52
If only there were a physical store to camp outside for weeks in advance.

Arto - Feb 27, 2017 at 16:56
You can choose any store and set a camp there. Just make sure you have a laptop and internet connection.
When time comes, purchase the game and go home.

Zak Phoenix McKracken - Feb 27, 2017 at 17:35
Ahahahahah!!! That's a good one!

longuist - Feb 27, 2017 at 16:54
Oh no. I mean yes.Happy happy joy joy!

Jonny Bergström - Feb 27, 2017 at 16:58
① maybe it's intentional but there is no big release date on the home page.

② march 30 is what time zone? As I'm in Japan dates like these almost always don't actually happen for me until like early morning the next day :-/

FLIR - Feb 27, 2017 at 17:21
Japan is at the end of the world; I don`t think TP get`s released there...

Jonny - Feb 27, 2017 at 23:16
You got to be kidding me! (╯°□°)╯︵  ┻━┻

You know that there is Japanese version of Zak? Come to think of it, I have to try that one out...

Nor Treblig - Feb 28, 2017 at 00:11
I have played Zak. There are no flights going to this "Japan"! So it doesn't exist, therefore no release there. Yep.

Btw. have you seen the alternative sprites in the FM-Towns version?

Nor Treblig - Feb 27, 2017 at 18:14
ad 1: The blog always comes first! :-)

Big Red Button - Feb 28, 2017 at 02:16
② Maybe that's the reason why the game will be released on a Thursday, so Japanese consumers will be able to buy it on a Friday when the weekend gets heralded.

Mattias Cedervall - Feb 28, 2017 at 12:54
Du har en himla tur som är i Japan! Vad gör du där? Det vore min drömresa (förutom rymden) att åka dit! ^_^

Oregondanne - Feb 28, 2017 at 13:37
I'm in Japan as well. Getting ready for March 31st, then. Are you the Jonny Bergström of Super Play fame, by the way?

Mattias Cedervall - Feb 28, 2017 at 18:40
Även du har en himla tur som är i Japan! Vad gör du där? Det vore min drömresa (förutom rymden) att åka dit! ^_^

Dirk - Mar 08, 2017 at 10:55
I was actually considering to take the day off (hope I am not the only one). So sitting in Germany, the question does make of sense to me.

Evan - Feb 27, 2017 at 16:59
In the goodie bag: all the thimbleweeds you can eat!  (Satisfaction not guaranteed. Do not eat if you are a mammal. Pigeons should be fine.)

"Mammalian herbivores usually avoid consumption of this [thimbleweed] because the foliage is toxic, causing a burning sensation in the mouth and irritation of the gastrointestinal tract."
http://www.illinoiswildflowers.info/prairie/plantx/thimbleweedx.htm

Miguel - Feb 27, 2017 at 17:09
Congrats to all the team. Those of us who work in software development know how stressful is to finally commit to a release date of a big project. It's been an amazing journey!

MoH - Feb 27, 2017 at 17:19
Thank you!

Big Red Button - Feb 27, 2017 at 17:36
By the way, on GOG.com the LucasArts point & click adventure games are currently drastically reduced!
I just noticed that the store page for Zak McKracken contains screenshots from the FM Towns version. Do GOG really offer the FM Towns version of this game for modern OS? Maybe I shall buy this game a second time!

Nor Treblig - Feb 27, 2017 at 18:00
On GOG you get the FM-Towns version AND the EGA version! The best of both worlds!

Sadly this is not true with most other LucasArts games there (Loom! WTF!).

Big Red Button - Feb 27, 2017 at 18:04
Wow, what a day! :-)

Janski - Feb 28, 2017 at 11:35
FM-Towns Zak is the best...

However, I think some of Zak's puzzles, especially on Mars are designed to be too quicktime tight. I sometimes do fail to get all three on the train in time but that is not the worst. The last crystal is just too hard to get in time before it closes again and you have to push the button again. Yes, my hands are not that fast.

And I have asphyxiated trying.

Great game, though.

Nor Treblig - Feb 28, 2017 at 11:58
I use hotkeys for everything (verbs, inventory, switching characters). The mouse cursor always stays in the room. Maybe that's why I never have timing problems.

Zak Phoenix McKracken - Feb 27, 2017 at 17:36
Now that the release date has benn announced, it's time to... fine tuning:
- at which hour, minute, second and TimeZone will the game be released?

Nor Treblig - Feb 27, 2017 at 17:58
Yeah, when is the release date of the release time?

Zak Phoenix McKracken - Feb 27, 2017 at 18:16
The 28th of Soon.

Tobias - Feb 27, 2017 at 17:41
YAAAAAAYYYY

miguelbaptista - Feb 27, 2017 at 17:54
Yeah!
Good luck and good work on this final stretch!

Congrats to the team. You guys are great. Can't wait for this pixel-y goodness. My body is ready.

Michael Hoffmann - Feb 27, 2017 at 18:25
Fantastic news! But also somewhat sad in a way, because I will miss this blog! A big thanks to the whole team for your hard work, I'm sure the game will be great!

A. - Feb 27, 2017 at 19:57
Amazing. It's happening.

BoTToX - Feb 27, 2017 at 20:12
BOOYAAAAAAAAAAA  !!!!!!!

R.C.M. - Feb 27, 2017 at 20:35
WHAT? How dare you not release it on a Friday! What a slap in the face!

Nah, just kidding! I'm really excited about finally playing it- I hope it's a big success!
Good luck to the TWP team and I hope we'll see more games from you.

Avis - Feb 27, 2017 at 23:25
Yay! Woohoo! Can't wait!

Bogdan Barbu - Feb 28, 2017 at 00:09
Can't wait for you guys to finish wrapping things up. Thanks for making us part of the process. :)

Isaac - Feb 28, 2017 at 00:45
Yeeeeahhhhhhhhhhhh!!!!!! :-)

Thanks to the whole team for a great work!!

Stefan - Feb 28, 2017 at 01:21
You made my day, Ron.
Thanks from Munich.

Sabine Berthold - Feb 28, 2017 at 01:44
Great News =D

Will it be possible to place a regular order for the collectors box too? Times were better when games came in boxes :-)

Thanks from Vienna!

Big Red Button - Feb 28, 2017 at 02:26
A few months after the download release, the game will also be available in a box.

Guga - Feb 28, 2017 at 02:26
Hype. Hype hype hype hype hype.

And since I know I won't have the time to play it right, I'm going to disappear from the Internet to avoid spoilers. Heck, I'm not even going to see my best friends to avoid comparing our progresses.

Or, I could play during the nights, when wife and kids are sleeping. Sleep is overrated, I can then sleep at work.

And if I get fired, I'll have more time to play TWP. Perfect.

HYYYYYYYYPE

Lluis Casanovas - Feb 28, 2017 at 03:00
I'm waiting id' like play at game like the firts " Maniac Mansion " another time, Maniac it was my firts Aventure Game

Lord Gaga - Feb 28, 2017 at 07:14
Oops, spelling mistake! You meant "farts".

Nor Treblig - Feb 28, 2017 at 08:50
Hey I like your wife! Hope that's OK.

Lord Gaga - Feb 28, 2017 at 09:41
She is called Right Hand or Righty for short. But I sometimes cheat her with Lefty, which is her neighbor (and could be her twin sister to be honest).

Nor Treblig - Feb 28, 2017 at 11:18
Eeeeeeerrrrrrrrrr, eeeewwwwww.

Diduz - Feb 28, 2017 at 03:13
Yeah, way to go! Looking forward to the moment I'll embrace the beautiful town of Thimbleweed Park. :-)

TheDon - Feb 28, 2017 at 03:22
Ok, it looks like I have to crack my Piggybank and get the three dimes to buy this game.

Bring it on!

Stefan - Feb 28, 2017 at 03:32
Can anyone recall any mention of whether the game will be available on the Mac App store?   And if not why not?

TheDon - Feb 28, 2017 at 03:39
I wouldn't recommend the Mac App Store. You have to pay 30% from the Price for every sold Item to Apple. The Update Cycle is a pain in the A*se. I had an App there, but after all that hustle, I sold it on my Website (Payment via Paypal).

Ron Gilbert - Feb 28, 2017 at 09:21
We have to pay Steam, GOG and MS 30% as well.  It might be on the Mac App store when the iOS version come out, but not until then. It's a lot of work and a pain in the ass to release on the Mac App Store we have a lot of things to do.

Steffen - Feb 28, 2017 at 10:46
30% 'tax' just for offering a platform seem a kind of modern robbery - at least in my eyes!
I know having a central marketplace is also a big value. But these platforms generate a second 'income' with selling aggregates information as well. Even more: at least at steam you don't own most of the games afterwards.
No wonder that every big IT-company tries to use that 'business' model meanwhile... for them it's a real goldmine!
So @Ron: Do you plan to offer the game also on your own?

Ron Gilbert - Feb 28, 2017 at 11:07
It's not a "tax" and I don't mind paying for it. They handle all the content delivery, plus dealing with all the local VAT and tax issues, plus they handle all the backend credit cards and return issues. If you've ever had to deal with that on the scale of hundreds of thousands of customers you will know it's well worth it.

Markus - Feb 28, 2017 at 11:42
Will there be any prepurchase? I saw the announcement on the steam-store site already.
I'd like to buy it for a friend before he buys it by himself on release day.

Mauro - Feb 28, 2017 at 03:49
I guess released for the Mac means on the Mac App store. iOS App store will have it months later. As you've noticed they go across all the media platforms.

Nor Treblig - Feb 28, 2017 at 04:41
Until now only Steam and GOG were mentioned and both support all PC platforms (Win, Mac, Linux).
At least for release day I wouldn't assume availability in any other stores.

Big Red Button - Feb 28, 2017 at 05:25
It will have to be offered at the Xbox One Store right from the start, due to the exclusivity.

Nor Treblig - Feb 28, 2017 at 06:17
Yes. I was talking about PC platforms only.

Malcolm - Feb 28, 2017 at 03:34
You made my week! That gives me one month to finish the 2nd most important game of the year torment 2 tides of Numenera...:-)

Gabarts - Feb 28, 2017 at 03:43
YIKES!

Jan Hofmeister - Feb 28, 2017 at 04:34
Looking at the Steam screenshots of the German UI I would've translated and arranged the German verbs slightly differently though... "Gib" and "Nimm" instead of "Gebe" and "Nehme", as well es swapping "Schließ" und "Schaue" - the latter one written in the more narrow font of "Schließ", and it would have enough space to become the better "Schließe". Ah well.

q-jack - Feb 28, 2017 at 05:02
I agree, in german it looks nicer and seems to be a bit more correct to use: "Gib", "Nimm", etc. I personally don´t care about, i just want the 30. March to come! Thanks to Ron Gilbert, Gary Winnick & Team, all Backers for this game!

entropy - Feb 28, 2017 at 05:18
I agree, while not a big thing.

However, that seems to be an explicit decision.
Otherwise, one might think taking a look to previous games would've been a good idea. :)
Maniac Mansion & MI 1+2 all use "Gib" and "Nimm" in the German action menu.

Will play the English version anyhow.

TR. - Feb 28, 2017 at 08:39
If it was an explicit decision, it's even worse, because "Nehme" and "Gebe" is just false. Correct imperative is "Nimm" and "Gib".

@TP team: Please fix this before release! Grammatical errors in such prominent location really give a bad impression. You wouldn't want "Tooke" and "Givve" in the English version, would you?

Big Red Button - Feb 28, 2017 at 10:23
According to the website of Duden (the most relevant German dictionary), you're right, even though some people actually use to say "Nehme" and "Gebe". It's just colloquial language, so I think that it's an exaggeration to compare it with "Tooke" and "Givve".
By the way, in the German version of the first Monkey Island game with the original text-based interface, there were the verbs "Mach an" and "Mach aus", which are not exactly grammatical either and also may be mistakable. Though, they were omitted later on, when the verbs interfaces contained only nine verbs.
But, in my opinion, there is nonetheless another benefit of changing the verbs: If you are used to the classic games, you are used to the particular verbs that have been common in such games.
Well, while it might be pretty easy to change "Nehme" to "Nimm" and "Gebe" to "Gib", it might be much more complicated to change "Schließ" to "Schließe" or "Nutze" to "Benutze", because it would have too many characters.

Daniel Wolf - Feb 28, 2017 at 10:33
Don't mean to nit-pick, but I agree with TR. "Nehme" and "Gebe" isn't correct German. Should be "Nimm" and "Gib".

It's a common error in German, similar to confusing "there", "their" and "they're" in English. Definitely not something you want every German player to keep staring at.

Nor Treblig - Feb 28, 2017 at 11:10
We all know "Nehme" is wrong.

...

It should be "Stehle".

Jan_W - Feb 28, 2017 at 11:34
Wrong again "Stiehl" would be correct - we're not thieves after all, you should say "Klau", that's much nicer...
or "Leih kurz aus"... (Borrow for one moment - implying never giving the item back because we broke it or it fell of bord a pirate ship)

Nor Treblig - Feb 28, 2017 at 11:46
Yeah yeah, just try telling the judge that "Klau" is so much better... :-)

"Borrow" would be a nice alternative, but instead of "leihen" it should be BORG!

Boris Schneider-Johne - Feb 28, 2017 at 20:45
Daniel (and others): The UI verbs are written this way by design. When you click on them and sentences are built in the sentence line, your suggestions are used. "Gib Notiz", "Nimm Notiz", "Betrachte Notiz" (instead of Schaue), "Benutze Notiz" (instead of Nutze).
All will make sense March 30th. Or 31st, depending on how fast you are solving puzzles.
(And in German it is not "Sinn machen" but "Sinn geben" - I can be a grammar nitpicker too... :-)

Daniel Wolf - Mar 01, 2017 at 03:44
Boris, thank you for taking the time to put our minds at ease!

Soong - Mar 07, 2017 at 04:26
I am still a bit confused by that. Is that supposed to be first person singular for alle the verbs?

bobdeniro - Feb 28, 2017 at 08:51
Here's the Venetian guy... you really are a treasure hunter! :D

I only wish Dom from Lucasdelirium had waited a few more days before posting his update about TP.
He complimented you, btw :)

Zak Phoenix McKracken - Feb 28, 2017 at 09:08
Thanks!

Diduz - Mar 01, 2017 at 03:41
You're right! I'm going to edit the text with a quick update. ;-)

Zak Phoenix McKracken - Mar 01, 2017 at 07:02
...quote from the home page of www.lucasdelirium.it  (translated for you from italian):

[...] "Zak Phoenix McKracken, one of the most active fans in the comments on the official blog, throughout the whole processing of  Thimbleweed Park, has maintained a relative mental sanity."

Thanks for your words, Dom! :-D :-D :-D

Diduz - Mar 01, 2017 at 08:47
You're welcome! :-)

Nor Treblig - Mar 01, 2017 at 18:58
"... one of the most active fans..."? We've run the numbers, you are the most active fan!
The text needs another update :-)

The longest month...

LichiMan - Feb 28, 2017 at 05:01
Wohoooooooo!!! Congrats to all the team!!
I'm already feeling sick...  :]

Andries - Feb 28, 2017 at 05:08
Any podcasts to look forward to? To be entirely honest, I am sad about the release date!   Now the wait is starting to draw to a close; it's nice to look forward to something.   I really haven't been this excited about something (let alone a game) since the day games used to come in boxes!

Great times!

Nor Treblig - Feb 28, 2017 at 06:19
It was announced that there will be a Friday Questions podcast! And I assume it will be before release.

Zak Phoenix McKracken - Feb 28, 2017 at 05:46
On Steam, Thimbleweed Park is rated as PEGI-12, for Mild Swearing and Sexual Innuendo ...
Again, if the Ransome lines weren't beeped... I wonder what PEGI rating would have been. Maybe 18, like the one assigned to GTA or COD?
Bizarre!

Tom - Feb 28, 2017 at 05:58
Ohhh please ship it on a floppy in a big cardboard box with a printed installation instructions manual. PLEASE!!!!

This is how Boom would be like, had Sierra made it (with AGI)

Averell - Feb 28, 2017 at 07:21
Damn!
Now I have to hurry and get my Indiana Jones Pinball Adventure ready to play.
I can hardly wait to play Thimbleweed Park.
Thanks for your vision, imagination and being patient in creating a great game we all remember in our lifes best time.

Sergio - Feb 28, 2017 at 07:47
Great news.
This is my personal GOTY.
It seems like yesterday that I loaded Maniac Mansion floppy in my beloved C64 and spent the whole night with the Edison...
Thanks Mr Gilbert. Thanks a lot.

Katie Parsons - Feb 28, 2017 at 07:51
I'm hoping Ron will revert back to http://grumpygamer.com once this blog is done. I loved reading some of those entries about game development processes back in the day, and whatever was making Ron grumpy at the time.

And I need it for the comments. I'm not sure I can wean myself off this fan interaction. Never dreamed I'd get this invested! You had me at Thim.

Nor Treblig - Feb 28, 2017 at 08:55
Oh there will be still a lot to do regarding TWP.

But I also hope he then keeps using his blog (also: please fix missing HTTPS and missing comment timestamps).

diskostu - Feb 28, 2017 at 07:56
Great news!
BTW, are there any of those beautiful trading cards left? ;)

What about the box art, will be awesome and immortal like Monkey, Maniac, FoA, little preview? :) It's for top backers only? Thanks

molul - Feb 28, 2017 at 09:53
So much looking forward for the Android release date :) We didn't have Day of the tentacle, but we're having Thimbleweed!

Daniel - Feb 28, 2017 at 10:11
Hi!

Release is on 30th of March, also in Germany? i prefer the german speech version, so will it have multilanguage?

please make more of this cool games

Big Red Button - Feb 28, 2017 at 10:27
Yes, the game is going to be multi-lingual and you will be able to change the language in the options menu.

Nor Treblig - Feb 28, 2017 at 11:13
Note that speech/voice is English only!
Text will be in English, German, French, Spanish, Italian and later Russian too.

Mattias Cedervall - Feb 28, 2017 at 13:00
Yes, the orange overlord Donald Trump will take care of the Russian!

Steffen - Feb 28, 2017 at 10:21
@RON: Important!
Today there was an article about TP in heise newsletter (https://heise.de/-3637605). Someone has complained about the wrong form of imperative words in GUI (https://www.heise.de/forum/p-30018067/) - and he is right!
In German the imperative of "nehmen" (take) is "nimm", not "nehme". And "nimm" was the verb in Monkey Island (http://www.tentakelvilla.de/mi1/monkey-7.jpg) and Zak.
Please speak with your translator (BSJ?) to correct the forms. Thanks in advance.

Daniel Wolf - Feb 28, 2017 at 10:36
Jan Hofmeister commented on the same issue further up. It's not just "Nehme"->"Nimm" but also "Gebe"->"Gib".

Mattias Cedervall - Feb 28, 2017 at 13:08
I'm not German, but I hope they will be corrected before the launch of the game!

Daniel Wolf - Feb 28, 2017 at 10:53
Seems like people are discussing these verbs on other websites, too. I just found a lengthy discussion on GamersGlobal:

http://www.gamersglobal.de/news/126802/thimbleweed-park-termin-steht-fest-screenshots-aus-deutscher-version#comment-1945469

Zak Phoenix McKracken - Feb 28, 2017 at 12:58
Poor Boris...

Michael Hoffmann - Feb 28, 2017 at 19:01
Yup, I don't understand the use of "Nehme" and "Gebe", either, especially considering the old LucasArts Adventures used the correct words. Also, "Schließ" is not a German word, there is an "e" missing at the end (though I guess this might be caused by the font being to large),

Michael Hoffmann - Feb 28, 2017 at 19:07
OK, just saw Boris' comment further down. Well, I guess we'll just have to trust him then! :-)

Boris Schneider-Johne - Feb 28, 2017 at 20:48
Schließ is a correct German word. Check Duden. The E at the end can be omitted.

Steffen - Feb 28, 2017 at 10:26
@All adventure fans: there was a nice project of Monkey Island figures in LEGO: https://ideas.lego.com/projects/72407
Unfortunately that last project has expired.  :-(
Maybe we should reactivate this idea - in special for MI as well as in general - and ask for a TP version!?
What do you think?

Nor Treblig - Feb 28, 2017 at 11:17
A lot of great projects won't even be created when they have enough supporters. Best would be to just build it yourself :-)

I liked this one: https://ideas.lego.com/projects/76854

Steffen - Feb 28, 2017 at 11:29
That's nice as well...

So let's generalize the request: we want all main figures and objects of all all Lucas Art adventures as LEGO collections! :-)
Honestly I would buy this if the price is not totally exaggerated.

Nor Treblig - Feb 28, 2017 at 11:48
It would be a big set... but I think I would buy it even if the price is totally exaggerated.

Lebostein - Feb 28, 2017 at 10:35
Why the german verbs are in wrong grammar?
"Nehme" should be "Nimm"
"Gebe" should be "Gib"
"Nutze" should be "Benutze"

http://www.gamersglobal.de/sites/gamersglobal.de/files/galerie/2527/MonkeyIsland2%E2%80%9303.jpg

Daniel Wolf - Feb 28, 2017 at 10:41
Did'n notice that last one before. "Nutze" isn't technically wrong, but it has a rather strange connotation. It's more like "harness" than "use". "Benutze" (like in the old adventures) is definitely more neutral.

Zak Phoenix McKracken - Feb 28, 2017 at 13:02
Your language looks complicated a lot :-)
(...I guess you don't know how many verb forms there are in italian... I can understand you!)

Marcel Taeumel - Feb 28, 2017 at 10:53
+1 for "Benutze", "Gib", and "Nimm" :-)

Jan_W - Feb 28, 2017 at 11:29
You're right about the verbs, although nowadays there are people who won't know the difference.
The problem is "Rede" + person's name or "Benutze" + object + object don't work in German either.
The MI screenshots just told me, there was the same issue with Gebe (which should be Gib) in MI I, but all the other verbs were correct. "Schau an" at least told you what the command was about (Schau ou wrongly Schaue being just "look", not "look at"), but it wouldn't help to make a correct German sentence (as "an" would have to be moved to the end of the phrase). It's just a tricky language!
Ron's hair is turning grey all over reading this discussion, I suppose...
But I am so happy the game will soon be here and as I came to play the demo in Berlin, I am convinced it will be absolutely great.
I also hope it will be financially worth the while for the team.
Yeah, and I will miss the blog...

Boris Schneider-Johne - Feb 28, 2017 at 20:56
And 'Rede' of course gets automagically expanded to 'Rede mit' on the sentence line in Thimbleweed Park.

Shinjica - Feb 28, 2017 at 10:45
Thanks for keeping the Italian translation. Other games i've baked dropped it after kickstarter

Boris Schneider-Johne - Feb 28, 2017 at 11:22
Über "Gebe" und "Gib".
Aloha, Boris hier. Ich sehe gerade, daß sich einige Leute über die Übersetzung der Verben in der UI beschweren. Schlauerweise hat das Team nur Screenshots veröffentlicht, in denen man keinen zusammengesetzten Satz sieht. Das System in Thimbleweed Park ist deutlich schlauer als in den Scumm-Adventures. Jedes Verb gibt es dreimal - als Grafik in der UI (normal&retro) und als Satzbaustein. Aus Gründen, die ich hier nicht spoilern kann, ist in der UI immer die auf "-e" endende Version zu sehen. Gebe, Rede, Nehme, Öffne. Ausnahme ist 'Schließe' weil Ron der Platz ausgegangen ist.
Wenn ich die Verben benutze, ist in der Kommandozeile aber was anderes zu sehen. Aus 'Gebe' wird beispielsweise 'Gib'. Also 'Gib Schlüssel an Reyes'.
Das System kann jetzt übrigens auch, im Gegensatz zu den alten Spielen, mit den deutschen Geschlechtern umgehen. 'Öffne Tür mit dem Schlüssel' und 'Öffne Tür mit der Schlüsselkarte' - man beachte den subtilen Unterschied mit dem und der.
Klage nicht, verzage nicht! Alles wird sich beim Spielen aufklären...

Steffen - Feb 28, 2017 at 11:32
Hallo Boris. Danke für die ausführliche Antwort.
Dennoch eine Frage: wäre es nicht möglich, die Befehlsform als Grundwort zu lassen und im Satz dennoch korrekt anzupassen?
Danke schonmal.

Jan_W - Feb 28, 2017 at 11:40
"Gib an"? - Müsste es nicht heissen, "Gib mit dem Schlüssel bei Reyes an?"

Nor Treblig - Feb 28, 2017 at 11:47

Big Red Button - Feb 28, 2017 at 11:50
Hallo Boris,
danke für die Information! Die Unterscheidung nach Geschlecht ist wirklich innovativ!
Jetzt bin ich gespannt darauf, was es mit dem "Spoiler" auf sich hat. Ein Grund mehr, die deutsch-sprachige Version zuerst zu spielen! :-D

Big Red Button - Feb 28, 2017 at 13:43
'Gib den Schlüssel an Reyes' ist aber nicht möglich?

Nor Treblig - Feb 28, 2017 at 11:53
Naja "beschweren", wir geben doch nur Anregungen :-)

entropy - Feb 28, 2017 at 12:01
Sie spammen hier die Kommentarfunktion zu.
Das ist noch vieeeel schlimmer als blosses "beschweren".

;)

Nor Treblig - Feb 28, 2017 at 12:15
Nooo, this is not true! Ask Zak Phoenix McKracken, he's the bad boy, the master spammer, and I have proof! :-)

Zak Phoenix McKracken - Feb 28, 2017 at 13:11
Ehm... Agree! (what?!)

Nor Treblig - Feb 28, 2017 at 14:23
Objection! (What?)

Zak Phoenix McKracken - Feb 28, 2017 at 13:08
Thank you for the explanation, Boris.
I don't know german, but I have understood (more or less) thanks to the automatic translator.
"The system can now also deal with the gender", if it works for German, it will sure do also for italian (we have male and female nouns and adjectives, and the articles change according to the noun gender).
I trust the TWP team!

Nor Treblig - Feb 28, 2017 at 14:23
But now I'm curious what the spoilery reason could be!

Big Red Button - Feb 28, 2017 at 15:12
Me too. :-)

Simon Simon - Mar 01, 2017 at 00:36

Alles wird gut.

entropy - Feb 28, 2017 at 11:28
Das sollte zu Boris' Kommentar.

Boris Schneider-Johne - Feb 28, 2017 at 11:28
Short english comment about German UI.
There are several good reasons to use "Gebe" "Nehme" and so forth in the UI. At least one of them is a spoiler, so - wait for the full game.
Rest assured that the SENTENCES that are constructed and can't be seen in the screenshots so far use proper grammar:
"Nimm Schlüssel"
"Benutze Schlüssel mit dem Vorhängeschloß"
See the UI verbs as the icons to the right - they are UI and they make a lot of sense this way.
Greetings from Germany, Boris

TR. - Feb 28, 2017 at 16:48
"Benutze Schlüssel mit dem Vorhängeschloß" may be proper grammar, but what about orthography? –"Vorhängeschloss"! :-P

Looking forward to see "Nahme" and "Gebe" making sense.

TR. - Feb 28, 2017 at 16:52
"Nehme", dammit!

Nor Treblig - Feb 28, 2017 at 16:58

TR. - Mar 01, 2017 at 06:01
You're right, that would have made sense.

Boris Schneider-Johne - Feb 28, 2017 at 20:27
Ja, Vorhängeschloss. The game is spellchecked against "new rules" and mistakes like these that I make because I am a fifty year old "old school" writer have been elminiated in the game. :-)

Nor Treblig - Mar 01, 2017 at 03:07
What? But the game is supposed to be from 1987! Fix (downgrade) your spellchecker!

Big Red Button - Mar 01, 2017 at 06:34
Never mind. I won't care about that anyway, since it had also worked well before the reform. I've always found this reform unnecessary. Also, there are still lots of texts from the era before it, so I'm really surprised about this criticism here.

But, the infinitives in the verbs UI need nonetheless an acclimatization, in my opinion.

Big Red Button - Mar 01, 2017 at 07:07
Sorry, I meant "imperatives" instead of "infinitives".

Zombocast - Feb 28, 2017 at 19:37
A Big English Thank You,
I was having trouble following since I read comments from newest to oldest.
That makes sense to have a short and simple ui and grammatically correct description on screen.

Guga - Mar 01, 2017 at 04:37
As a non-native German speaker with ENORMOUS lacks in grammar knowledge, I'm perplexed about the verb tense. What should "gebe" and "nehme" be? First person Indikativ? Third person Konjunktiv I?

Anyway, now I have a reason to play the game in German too (after playing it in English and Italian).

Zak Phoenix McKracken - Mar 01, 2017 at 07:05
By the way, are there any TWP screenshots in italian?
I have seen one picture with the verb interface in italian, once here in the blog, then I have read a tweet from Ron stating that he was doing screenshots for every language, but on Steam I see only the english versions.

Big Red Button - Mar 01, 2017 at 07:16

Dear Zak, change the language of the Steam site (on the top right of the page) and you'll see screenshots and description in the selected language  (obviously only the featured ones)! TWP Team keep their promises.

That translation of "keep out" as "scio'!!!" ahahah that's fine, that's the spirit! One of the first thing I'll do after I downloaded my supporter copy from GOG.com is to enjoy all the opening credits (I just suppose there will be opening credits as seen in MI 1 & 2).

Thanks, Big Red Button and Gffp!
The Steam page was already in italian, but the images were in english.
Now I have changed to German then to Italian again, and now it's fine.
Computer magics...

Wow I'm so glad! Fer days ago I completed Sam & Max for the first time, now I'm with Monkey 4. Full Throttle is the last game from  LucasArts I never beated. Do you think I have time till 30th March? I don't use walkthroughts. I am back in Melee on M4, I don't know how to get the flaming sushi ship on the new-remodeled SCUMM Bar. Thanks Ron, Dave and Gary for Thimbleweed Park. I hope you to make a second proyecto soon, maybe a Dave's one.

If you want we can try to help you without as much spoiler as a walkthrough would have.
Just tell us what your thoughts are and we try to hint you the correct direction.

I listened months ago to your song "Irme es alas". I still remember and enjoy it, it's a good sign :-)

Gins - Feb 28, 2017 at 14:48
Nooooo you had to pick the second latest possible date in March!
And it's a Thursday too! Which means I will most likely not play it before the 31st so I can really sink myself into it for the weekend :D

Can't wait, this game looks and sounds better with every update.

You guys fancy founding a Facebook group together? 'TWP Blog Veterans' or something

Ricardo Marichal - Feb 28, 2017 at 15:27
How annoying !!! I expected it to be May 29. I can not wait that long.

Damien - Feb 28, 2017 at 15:32
I don't care when is the release date of this game. I just want to buy it. Let me spend my money !

New Option: when language selection is set to german then new option for verb switch will be available : Gebe/Gib Nehme/Nimm
Lol

...additionally a second extra-german-option: spellchekcer pre or post grammar reform rules!
I see a big potential for DLC-updates for the german version of TWP!
:-)

There are coming a lot of good games the last days of March but TP is my priority. I can't wait to see my big box edition.

Big Red Button - Mar 01, 2017 at 06:38
Maybe it's bad timing for the release of TWP. On the other hand, you can't compare TWP with Mass Effect or Ghost Recon anyway.

Nor Treblig - Mar 02, 2017 at 08:38
I've never heard of those games anyway. Next important game release (with a known date) is on 2017-08-25.

Big Red Button - Mar 01, 2017 at 09:33
I just read the text on the Steam page. I'm very happy to read that the game is not a walking simulator, even though walking simulators have a right to exist. :-)

nit-pick-mode = true;
I noticed a little typo on the German Steam page: "Ein modernes Mystery-Adventure**s** von..." Correct diction: "Mystery-Adventure von...".
nit-pick-mode = false;

Picture 8 on the steam page shows fog. Wonder if its volumetric and reacts to the players movement :)

Hesname - Mar 01, 2017 at 16:50
Watch the signals @ mar.30 -- they will be stronger than ever.

Mister T - Mar 13, 2017 at 16:57
I want to point and click those characters so badly...

Zak Phoenix McKracken - Mar 22, 2017 at 06:57
According to a recent Ron's tweet, Thimbleweed Park will be released on March 30th between 9-10 AM PDT (6-7 PM CEST).
To find which time will be in your timezone, a site like https://www.worldtimebuddy.com/ would be useful.

Nor Treblig - Mar 22, 2017 at 12:18
Noyce! I've seen your countdown was updated too!
what is one + three?
