Thimbleweed Park Down Under

by Ron Gilbert
Oct 24, 2016

We're heading to PAX Australia (with a stop over at GCAP) next week and we'll be doing a small community event where you can have the opportunity to play a little Thimbleweed Park. It's an adventure game, perhaps you've heard of it?

All the detail are on our Facebook page because that's where all the cool kids are.

Hope to see you in Melbourne on the 5th.

We're planning some more events in Europe, in the coming months.

- Ron

How about a little play teaser for the backers?

Zak Phoenix McKracken - Oct 25, 2016 at 00:33
Good. I will wait for the event in Europe to have a chance to meet one of you.

No, it's not a threat.

Any chance you guys need another test in the Bay Area? Would love to sit and play for an hour or more...

Hungary has a strong gaming community and we are excited about the game! I hope you can come here or in a close country. I can give you direct  contact details of the main gaming related sites here if requested. :-)

+1! :-)

I wouldn't miss an opportunity to get signed my Monkey Island big box with the MASTER!

I am seriously sooo jelly!
I was at PAX AUS last year and therefore missed you at Gamescom, and now you are there and I am back in Germany.. =(
I really hope for more Europe events! I am super hyped for the game!

Coming to Japan? You missed Tokyo Game Show. I guess there might be more events.

Ivan Braidi - Oct 25, 2016 at 06:57
Will you have some dates in Italy? 🤓

Zak Phoenix McKracken - Oct 25, 2016 at 08:33
They missed Milan Games Week and Lucca Comics and Games.
Next events in Italy?
- GameCom Comics Movies & Games (Pordenone, from November 13th to 15th)
- Torino Xmas Comics & Games (Turin, December 17th and 18th)

Remember, remember the 5th of November... when the flux capacitor was invented.

Mattias Cedervall - Oct 25, 2016 at 13:22
Ron, will you bring home a kangaroo as a beloved cute pet/bug finder?

Zak Phoenix McKracken - Oct 25, 2016 at 14:32
Rumors say that in Australia there are animals with more than one head.
If I were Ron, I would look for squirrels and monkeys...

Dieter - Oct 25, 2016 at 17:41
No, no, no: two headed squirrels -> Mt. Rainier, three headed monkeys -> Caribbean Sea

So the U.S.A. seems much more dangerous! ... and the TWP engine: It uses Squirrel. ;-)

Mattias Cedervall - Oct 26, 2016 at 12:04
That's interesting! Are you sure you aren't Ron?

Quarnz - Oct 25, 2016 at 20:10
I'll be there!! Are you guys going to have a playable demo at PAX?

Ron Gilbert - Oct 25, 2016 at 20:16
Not on the show floor, only at this event. Or if you mug me for my laptop.

Farooq - Oct 27, 2016 at 11:10
With all due respect, imma love to rob you sir, if only i can sneak up in a flight to Australia. If only...

Cheeseness - Oct 25, 2016 at 23:31
I'll be there. Looking forward to catching up again! :D

Natalija - Oct 26, 2016 at 14:32
Ron you forgot to put your name at the end again..

Sigh, so close to New Zealand and yet so far

Patricio Martinotti - Oct 26, 2016 at 22:13
Tum de dum, Dave, tum the dum.

Zak Phoenix McKracken - Oct 27, 2016 at 03:37
Wow, Patricio, those songs are nice!
Are you the singer or one of the guitarists?

Patricio Martinotti - Oct 28, 2016 at 20:49
Thank you my italian friend! I'm the singer, rhythm guitarist and songwriter (and the piano player on Mi Chernobyl, the album's hit). This 2016 I released another album, the most important work of my life at date. Search for the
Konklin's  full album, the plesiosaur one. Well Zak, are you awayting for january? The Thimbleweed Park release? Did you purchase physicallly?

Zak Phoenix McKracken - Oct 27, 2016 at 10:08
Let's play a trivia.
About Zak McKracken And The Alien Mindbenders™.

Q: Zak is running out of money. You don't have anything to sell anymore, and you did not discover the LOTT-O-MATIC machine yet. On the other hand, Annie's CashCard is full of money. What do you do to "transfer" money from Annie's CC to Zak's CC?
Will you use your charme? Your enigmatic smile? Or...
Let's hear (read) your reasonings!

Zak Phoenix McKracken - Oct 27, 2016 at 15:43
Nice mug :-)

One of the solution was:
- meet Zak and Annie at one airport
- Annie buys a ticket (the most expensive if possible)
- Annie gives the ticket to Zak
- Zak uses the ticket with terminal, and get a refund.
TA DAH! :-)

Nor Treblig - Oct 27, 2016 at 16:10
Oh yes, now I remember that one.

You could also buy, swap and sell stuff (with quite a loss). I think the improved butter knife was the only really valuable thing.

Ema - Jan 08, 2017 at 12:52
Are there more solutions, Zak?

Nor Treblig - Jan 08, 2017 at 17:49
Who knows what mysteries are still buried in this game...

The plane ticket solution seems to be the most efficient one and works everywhere on this(!) planet.
Unless... maybe you can steal the portable CashCard reader from the bum or cult member somehow :-)
