Thimbleweed Park does Europe Update!!!

by Jenn Sandercock
Jan 20, 2017

We've had a great response for our three fan events in Europe! Thanks to everyone who let us know they're coming.

We're now able to confirm that the full details for the fan events are:

Munich

Date: Sunday 29th January 2017
Time: 7:00pm - 11:00pm
Location: Stragula, Bergmannstrasse 66, 80339 München

IMPORTANT NOTE: We were unable to secure a place that can fit more than 80 people and also adheres to our other requirements. We'll do our best to get everyone who turns up to come in. But with over 140 people signed up so far, it might be hard. We're asking for your patience and help in letting everyone have a chance to see the game.

MUNICH UPDATE!

There's been a lot of concern about the venue capacity of our Munich fan event.  We're listening to you.

At this point, it's too late to find somewhere that will be able to fit everyone and meet our requirements. FYI: Our main requirements are to have a relaxed venue where you can hang out with some of the dev team and other adventure game fans. Other venue options that we looked at in Munich that were larger would mean that the event would become more formal and corporate-like. Ron's at his best when he's meeting you all individually, rather than addressing the multitude. We also want a place that served food and drinks.

UPDATED UPDATE: We've been able to arrange it so that we can open to everyone at 5pm (17:00). So that gives us more time for everyone to come, hang out, grow bored, leave and let new people in.

However, we want to make it clear that we will not kick anyone out. We do ask that if you feel like you've had a good experience and there are people waiting outside that you respect them and let them have a chance to come inside and hang with everyone. But we will not kick people out.

We will have a limited number of stations to play the game on, so it's unlikely everyone will get to play, but we won't be kicking people off after a few minutes of play, you will get to complete the demo. This has been true at all the past events and a group usually gathers around the station and everyone played it "adventure game" style. We try and have big monitors so everyone can watch.

We know this isn't ideal, but we hope everyone still has a great time.

Berlin (powered by Games Academy)

Date: Saturday 4th February 2017
Time: 6:00pm - 10:00pm
Location: Games Academy, Rungestraße 20, 10179 Berlin

London

Date: Thursday 9th February 2017
Time: 7:00pm - 11:00pm
Location: Zigfrid von Underbelly, 11 Hoxton Square, London N1 6NU

At each location Ron Gilbert and I (Jenn Sandercock) will be there. At some of the locations some of our European team will join us. In Munich we'll have: Boris Schneider-Johne (German translator), and some of our test team. Joost Peters (programmer) will join us in Berlin. Rob Megone (lead tester) will join us in London. Others of the development team will also try and join us if they can.



SigKill - Jan 20, 2017 at 15:01
Think London should be Sunday 19th February 2017, and not January :)

SigKill - Jan 20, 2017 at 15:02
Nah, but the text in the image is correct :/

Lex - Jan 20, 2017 at 15:05
The image says 9th, but i just got this email:

"Thanks so much for letting us know you’re interested in attending our fan event in Berlin on Thursday 8th February 2017.

We can now confirm that we’ll be holding the event at Zigfrid von Underbelly, 11 Hoxton Square, London N1 6NU, from 7pm - 11pm."


err Berlin instead of London? 8th? I think Jenn is having a bad day :)

Aquarion - Jan 20, 2017 at 16:30
Don't think it is, 9th February is a Thursday. OTOH, this box lists your comment as having been sent Dec 31, 1969 at 19:00, so I can only assume we're deep into the weird.

Captain Delicious - Jan 20, 2017 at 15:01
I think your London date is wrong in your post

Mattias Cedervall - Jan 20, 2017 at 15:08
I wish I could afford to go there!

Graeme Chicken - Jan 20, 2017 at 15:08
I'm all over this!! Coming to London from up north!! Feb 9th can't come soon enough!!

Jassen - Jan 20, 2017 at 15:08
Looking forward to the London event! I noticed you've amended the date and place on the Facebook group.  See you there, team! :)

Tobias R. - Jan 20, 2017 at 15:29
Oh no! I spent quite a bit of money and even had to take a day off from work to get to Munich, and now this…

tcmsurfer - Jan 21, 2017 at 04:06
I didn't spend any money, yet. But I am still pondering about going. I will probably go, since it is not just about the game and seeing the devs, it is kind of also a chance to mee the other ppl who was along this year long journey.

Chris - Jan 20, 2017 at 15:37
So what's the plan for Munich - close your eyes and hope for the best? Couldn't you maybe give out tickets on a random basis so people would be sure to get in?

Olli - Jan 21, 2017 at 04:43
Random tickets would be bad if you come with your wife or a friend.
But if it was clear there would be room for only 80 people, why was there no information about the fact, and a first-come-first-serve limit regarding the reservations?
I might have gone to Berlin, where there seems to be no limit, but the train tickets to Munich are already paid. Let's hope for the best.

Mister T - Jan 21, 2017 at 07:24
Well, it is 4 hours. I am not sure how long people plan to stay there. If you estimate that 320 people showed up during the evening, each of them would still be able to be there one hour, and maybe carry on conversations with fellow adventure fans somewhere else. How many people can play on their own isn't defined by the room anyway.

My own plan is just to go there (I will be at the Berlin event though), get an idea about the game, maybe drop an ear when someone asks Ron a smart question and then disappear when it becomes repetitive.

Olli - Jan 21, 2017 at 08:25
"I am not sure how long people plan to stay there."

Given the high travel expenses, I planned to be there for 4 hours.

Mister T - Jan 23, 2017 at 09:35
True, I am much closer, so the travel-stay ratio is different for me. But I guess it will be the same for many visitors in Munich.

Wluut - Jan 23, 2017 at 12:50
I will be in Munich, but not for the whole time.
I still have to catch up watching Twin Peak, X Files, and True Detective to get all the references in the final game ;-)
(Normally, I don't watch TV series.) Probably, I will also have to replay Maniac Mansion etc.

Luckily, it's 10 minutes from my home. I pass the location every morning on my way from Kindergarten to work.

Olli - Jan 23, 2017 at 15:26
Thanks to both of you for helping to solve this issue. I appreciate it a lot.

Zak Phoenix McKracken - Jan 20, 2017 at 15:53
I have just peeked at the location (Munich): it's fantastic!! I love it, a very nice pub!
Thank you Jenn for this wonderful location!

Marc - Jan 21, 2017 at 13:43
It's also a bit of a blurry place, if you go on Street View.
Google Maps' aerial view is very nice though.

Zak Phoenix McKracken - Jan 22, 2017 at 06:03
Agree, I looked at these pictures, from Google, and I can say to love this place:
https://goo.gl/zmFhxA

Daniel Wolf - Jan 20, 2017 at 16:04
It's a pity they couldn't find a larger venue. Room for 80 out of 140 people does seem a bit small. Especially considering we're still a week from the event, so there may be even more people interested.

The original announcement sounded like, "have fun playing the game and chatting with fans and the team." Now it's more like, "stand in line, glance at the game, have an item ready to be signed, then get out so that others may get their item signed."

I'm sure the team are doing everything they can. Still, I'm a bit disappointed.

Zak Phoenix McKracken - Jan 20, 2017 at 16:21
I believe that the place can contain 80 persons if everybody is sat at the tables.
Maybe, if they could take off some of the tables, there would be more room for people. It's just an idea...
Anyway, just to have the chance to be there, it's a big privilege!
I am confident that everyone will get a chance to meet TWP staff, and/or to play the game!

tcmsurfer - Jan 21, 2017 at 04:07
Agreed!

Marc - Jan 21, 2017 at 13:46
Then you've never been to Germany before, if you think the fire department will let more people in (by removing tables) than is allowed for a given venue. Those strickt Germans are tough cookies! :D

Zak Phoenix McKracken - Jan 22, 2017 at 03:13
I have never been in Germany, you are right. But i am an adventure player used to solve puzzles. There is this puzzle: "How can you fit 140 persons in a place capable of 80"? ... that was my answer ;-)
Jokes apart, I fully understand and agree the rules, they exist for our safety.
If the venue were in Italy, everyone would have been welcomed and allowed in, including firemen :-)

Ema - Jan 22, 2017 at 15:17
Zak, I think you don't know our firemen... they're real nitpickers, too :-)
...thanks God.

Zak Phoenix McKracken - Jan 22, 2017 at 17:33
I was imaging a scenario like: "come on, enter... you are welcomed... you too, firemen, come on..."
Then the firemen would have probably done a step behind.
I don't forget how many people are rescuing from the avalanche during these days. Heroes.

Ema - Jan 20, 2017 at 16:50
Dear Daniel,

I think you're right. The original announcement sounded like "ok, it's a special gift for you backers. The location is sekrit, and will be revealed only to the few lucky guys. So that you can spend a nice evening without the crowds, and we (the devs) can hang out relaxfully, just chatting with nice people and without having to sign one thousend items or posing for one thousend selfies"

On the other hand, it is promotion. I can understand they want as many people as possible. Even if that means no fun and a lot of work for them. It's a pity, but maybe it's the only way...

Big Red Button - Jan 20, 2017 at 19:05
I assume, in a city like Munich a week can be pretty short if you need to find a location with a certain capacity. You cannot simply look for an empty hall, because you would still need a catering service with a sufficient capacity. And, if you would like to cater yourself for your guests, you would need a license for it. I think that all gastronomers who have a major capacity use to make sure that they are busy enough over the upcoming weeks, so that most of them might already be too fully booked for hosting such a big event in the short term.

Terryble - Jan 20, 2017 at 19:44
Regardless of the capacity a 'meet the dev' per se feels different with 60, 160 or 600 people.

Johannes - Jan 21, 2017 at 02:56
At least for those standing outside.
It's a true pity, and Daniel summed it up very well. Now it's the same as Gamescom: Come, wait, see, leave, thank you, next please.
"Hang out with the devs", it said.
There are people traveling for hours, have booked early and everything. For being asked to leave as soon as possible.
It should at least be understandable that I am disappointed too.

Dieter - Jan 21, 2017 at 06:16
Guys (and girls), please be kind with the devs. Ron travels the long way from america to europe (while the development still goes on!) to meet the fans. There are more fans than expected and at least I think that is great! And remember: You will be able to play the game before all others!

If you are not comfortable with the location and the situation: Help the dev team and find a (bigger) location! It's that simple.

And "meeting the devs" means to say hello the devs and not to talk the whole evening with the devs alone. I am very glad that Ron and the other devs take time to visit europe. And if I had the time I would wait in the line just to see the game(!) and say hello to Ron. (I didn't even know what to ask him. :))

Johannes - Jan 21, 2017 at 06:39
Please respect my opinion. "Do it better" is a very unfriendly answer and completely missing my point.

Reasons for disappointment were given. Overpromising always leads to such reaction, naturally.

Terryble - Jan 21, 2017 at 06:53
My point was that no matter if you find a big enough location, due to the number of people showing up, it feels different, like a more intimate concert vs. a concert in a big hall. It might be one of the few cases where you wish that there would be less adventure fans. Obviously it's great that there is an interest in the game/adventures and I agree, it's nice that they're doing it. The Bavaria Park and Theresienwiese would be close to the location, with Ransome's Circus of Tragedy but it's winter and cold right now.

Isaac - Jan 20, 2017 at 16:25
It's sad to see you won't come to Spain :'(

Steffen - Jan 20, 2017 at 16:41
Hej Jenn, hej Ron & Co.

I know it's very short term for the Munich happening but don't you think questioning all fans here and in FB or Twitter could help to get a bigger room? Maybe somewhere at the university in Munich or in the Olympic or ferry areas? What are theses other requirements you have?
I am sure everybody in the Munich area would love to help if possible!

Big Red Button - Jan 20, 2017 at 19:26
I assume that they have already booked at that location. If the event lasts long enough, queueing people would still have good chances to get in.

Tramboi - Jan 20, 2017 at 20:41
Germany twice, France never, nazi spotted.
You're such a slave of the market.
And our people did so much for Scumm reversal..
Such betrayal.
Charles de Gaulle v2.0

Nor Treblig - Jan 20, 2017 at 21:39
That's harsh.

Especially since everyone knows that Adventure games only exist in our dreams and memories anymore... and Germany.

Herr Stirz - Jan 21, 2017 at 03:53
Serious question: If one of the locations was Karlsruhe and you were living in Strasbourg (<40 min journey by train), would you still post this?

I am living in Germany and both locations would require me to travel at least 4 hours (at best), 5 hours more realistically. I assume your journey would not substantially longer.

Please refrain from insulting the team and the community, we are all waiting for the same exciting thing to be published - regardless of where we live.

Cheers,

Herr Stirz

Nor Treblig - Jan 21, 2017 at 05:25
Also it seems like their chosen locations perfectly match with locations of European backers.

Taking a look at the Kickstarter community: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/thimbleweedpark/thimbleweed-park-a-new-classic-point-and-click-adv/community

Top 3 countries by far are USA, Germany and UK. France having only 11% backers of Germany despite being only a bit smaller, about same population as UK.

Top 4 cities are London, Berlin, San Francisco and Munich.
Also Berlin and Munich are very far from each other despite being in the same country.

Big Red Button - Jan 21, 2017 at 07:26
Thank you for that link! I think it shows that the locations have been chosen very reasonably. It might clear out any discussions about it.

Sushi - Jan 21, 2017 at 04:28
I could join any of the three events, provided some 6 hours drives and two days off from work. But with the huge turnout already, and the fact I don't like selfies either, I am going to pass up on the opportunity of a possible 1 minute face to face chat with good old Ron. Anyway, the participation of the developers on this blog and in its comments and the wonderful Friday Questions is more than I could've hoped for 2 years ago!! Have fun everyone going, I'll be behind my computer playing some P&C. #yomo (I had to google that one too)

Sushi - Jan 21, 2017 at 13:01
I meant #jomo

Volon21 - Jan 21, 2017 at 07:49
Hmm.. I was thinking about going from eastern Austria to Munich, but with such a high chance of not being able to get in. hmm.

Zak Phoenix McKracken - Jan 22, 2017 at 03:28
Yes, if I were you, I'll choose Berlin or London....

Johnny C Walker - Jan 21, 2017 at 10:56
So we just turn up and hope for the best?

Martin Wendt - Jan 21, 2017 at 13:27
This will be great :)
Good to meet Joost again, too. Cool, so many coders. With Unity and all, I feel like that most adventure games don't even have a single programmer anymore. Thanks for organizing this Jenn & the others. See you in Berlin then!

Dominik - Jan 22, 2017 at 06:30
Hello.
I have another question.
Will There be a special edition of the game and if yes how it will be.

Greetz

Big Red Button - Jan 22, 2017 at 16:07
To my knowledge, there will be only one version of the game.

Tobias R. - Jan 22, 2017 at 16:55
…which IS special!

Dominik - Jan 22, 2017 at 16:58
:).. ok .. I think you Are absolutely right. :)
Thank you .

Nor Treblig - Jan 22, 2017 at 18:56
And it's better be called out of the box: Thimbleweed Park Special Remastered Edition: Director's Cut 2.0

Gffp - Jan 22, 2017 at 19:31
Yes, absolutely! This is a special edition! The original is from 1987 and has never been released! Only Ron and Gary own a copy of it!

Nor Treblig - Jan 22, 2017 at 20:21
Rumours say the game was almost finished. They've prototyped several endings but could never decide which one to use. It never mattered anyway since they've shelved the game after VPL Data Glove came out everyone knew Virtual Reality is the future.

Gffp - Jan 23, 2017 at 03:43
Unfortunately, destiny has shelved another thing from 1987: a president of the biggest country of the western world pretending to live still in that year, with no global warming, no climate change, no public health care concerns.

Tobias R. - Jan 22, 2017 at 17:03
Hi, Jenn,
I just saw your Munich update and wanted to say "thanks".

Gffp - Jan 22, 2017 at 19:04
Don't you worry, boys'n girls! I bet there will be enough Ron for everyone!

Zak Phoenix McKracken - Jan 23, 2017 at 07:03
Ahah, it looks like more a Rum museum, rather than Ron! :-D

Nor Treblig - Jan 23, 2017 at 13:52
It seems like Ron in Spanish means Rum. Which now begs the question: Why did his parents decide for this name? :-)

Ema - Jan 23, 2017 at 16:45
Because they thought that "Grog Gilbert" did'nt sound good.

Nor Treblig - Jan 23, 2017 at 17:28

Zak Phoenix McKracken - Jan 23, 2017 at 06:57
Hey Nor Treblig, at the end will you be at one of the events?

Nor Treblig - Jan 23, 2017 at 13:51
Sorry but no, I won't be coming. Too far away, probably too full and I have too much to do anyway.

But if you go there cosplaying: PICS OR IT DIDN'T HAPPEN!

Gffp - Jan 23, 2017 at 14:31
Millennial style selfies! (This make me feel so old... ahahah)

Zak Phoenix McKracken - Jan 23, 2017 at 16:26
I will go in a "mesh-up" cosplay:  Phoenix Wright + Zak McKracken = Zak Phoenix McKracken.
Too bad you won't come to Munich, but I understand. I had to take a day off from work... but it's worth!

Carlo Valenti - Jan 23, 2017 at 17:14
I'll be time-travelling to change this.

Mister T - Jan 23, 2017 at 09:33
You should go to Hamburg as well. Not for an event, but simply to visit the Miniatur Wunderland.

Zak Phoenix McKracken - Jan 23, 2017 at 16:22
Hello,
I just showed Thimbleweed Park (trailers, demo, any sort of footage present on the blog and on the internet) to a friend of mine and a 12-years-old boy who has never seen it before.
He was positively impressed by Ransome the clown. He likes him very much, because of his swearing! :-D
The boy asked me if there is a T-shirt with Ransome on it.
I ansered: "I don't know, but I know who can answer you!"
So, here is my question: is there any official T-shirt with Ransome the clown on it?
Thank you!

Nor Treblig - Jan 23, 2017 at 17:31
I think I know someone here wanting a Delores T-Shirt...

Btw. I'd recommend this one: https://goo.gl/FFL8zs
But if you really insist on a clown shirt... https://goo.gl/ra6D5t

Zak Phoenix McKracken - Jan 23, 2017 at 17:55
Eeeeeeek! Thank you for your suggestions. Now, what do you think of a T-shirt with a 3-headed-Ransome???

Nor Treblig - Jan 23, 2017 at 18:12
Now this could be problematic to find room for the balloon! Or do we need three balloons?

longuist - Jan 24, 2017 at 02:05
A 3 headed monkey holding 3 balloons with ransome counterfeit on it holding 3 balloons with 3 headed monkeys on it. And so on..

Zak Phoenix McKracken - Jan 24, 2017 at 07:19
@Gffp: Can you build the latest Ransome video with the audio track of Ransome you made, in italian?
It would be really funny!

Gffp - Jan 25, 2017 at 10:40
Sorry, that's beyond my capability.

Gffp - Jan 26, 2017 at 06:55

Zak Phoenix McKracken - Jan 26, 2017 at 07:20
AHAHAH that's great!
You deserve a BARREL of beer!!
Thank you!
I'd like to publish it on youtube / facebook, but it should be clear that the audio is NOT the original audio, even if the content is the correct italian translation of the original.

@TWP Staff: do you think it could be a good idea?

Gffp - Jan 26, 2017 at 07:52
Honestly I don't know if it's a great idea, since the video is rough. Voice recording has poor quality and in the second part there is not a great accordance with the animations shown. I intended my voice dubbing as a test to figure out if the characterization of Ransome could work that way, on a wave of enthusiasm for the good original trailer. More, I would never bore TP team with copyright issues. Thank you very much for the appreciation indeed!

Zak Phoenix McKracken - Jan 26, 2017 at 08:09
OK, I respect your wishes.
But please, just out of curiosity: are you from Naples or Rome?
Your accent seems to betray you :-D

Gffp - Jan 26, 2017 at 08:18
I love all the italian accents. I'm from the province of Naples, but able to speak fluently in roman slang, and reproduce many accents. Probably also yours :-P

Zak Phoenix McKracken - Jan 26, 2017 at 08:49
"Pota, gnaro... " I can assure you that my slang is not one of the easiest :-)
Congratulations anyway.

riot - Jan 25, 2017 at 17:40
Funny - in invited you to the space station c-base, now you're visiting the space above (Games Academy) :-)
Make sure to check out the c-base for a beer or mate ice tea after your event and ask for a tour.

longuist - Jan 25, 2017 at 17:58
Btw, there is a december presskit update. ..

Soong - Jan 26, 2017 at 02:20
Thank you so much for working so hard on the Munich event!  Something that would be really helpful would be if you could keep us updated about how many people have registered for the event and what that means, from your experience, for actual attendance numbers.  I am not that far away from Munich, but I can either pay a lot of money to get there quickly or little money and spend a lot of time getting there.  So having more information on how good my chances are for getting in will make it a lot easier to decide whether to get on a train or not.  I think the situation is similar for other people.

Zak Phoenix McKracken - Jan 26, 2017 at 07:23
I can report you that on the Facebook page event, there are currently 96 confirmed people. You have to add people registered via this site.
I come from Italy, I will travel half a day to be there. I hope to be able to enter as soon as possible...

Hmm - Jan 26, 2017 at 15:40

David: hi Gary, how are you?
Gary: fine, Dave. And you? What's the weather like there?
David: I feel good. I was watching TV... Those Bernie's speeches always energize me! If only he was twenty years younger... He would definitely rock the party! I mean the democratic party. Well ahem here is cloud and sunny. What's going on there?
Gary: well... I want to finish the set of secondary characters... Hmmm I'm almost done, you know the latest touch...
David: OK Gary. Don't you forget to draw someone black. There are eighty people there... Even in 'The empire strikes back' they introduced Lando to represent also black people, you know...
Gary: oh sure David, I've done it way before you told me...
David: and please tell me..
Gary: oh no Dave, that would be a treat!
David: ok Gary, see you later.
Gary: bye David.

Gary: oh gosh he's right...time is running out... Wait I've those faces from team members...David demands black characters...
Black David Fox. Sheriff. Done.

So, this leak from TWP has been published, huh...
I was told that the character of Natalie ( https://storage.googleapis.com/images.thimbleweedpark.com/www/character_natalie.png ) was white, at first sketch...

I do not consciously go to the meeting! I want to enjoy the game full. Find it great that it is offered. Only it is nothing for me. Thanks to Ron!

BREAKING NEWS
Ron Gilbert has just welcomed GMT timezone (according to his latest tweet)
So he is in Eur.... errr... he is in London now.

Zombocast - Jan 28, 2017 at 16:44
Dear, Ron Gilbert

I'm glad to hear you've safely landed in Germany.

I write to you today because; I've recently come across a video that I thought you'd like.
In this video you can see another game developer addressing varying resolutions of pixel sprites.
I think he captured the essence of the "classic feel with a modern look". I hope you enjoy the video.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AlCbPg_bUjc

PS: Please don't seek asylum in Germany, game developers are a precious commodity in the US!

Unfortunately,  I won't make it to the meeting after all.  Something came up here that I really need to take care.  So there will be one fewer visitor in Munich and I guess that won't hurt things.  I hope there will be another chance to meet Ron and the rest of them team some day.

I  need to give you all my money! When does the preorders start again?

Dieter - Jan 29, 2017 at 16:51
You mean preorders of the game? They are closed. You have to wait until they release the game.

Big Red Button - Jan 29, 2017 at 17:46
Nonetheless you can download the game directly from the store once you've bought it there, so there would actually be no reason for a preorder.
By the way, the game will be available for download only. But, according to Ron, there is a chance for a release on DVD after some months.

Wow the party was awesome!
Nice location, there were many people in the middle time (7:30-9:00) , poor Ron met everyone. He was really kind.
I have payed the demo and looked at every possible joke hidden in it. The game is funny and.... yes.... there's the toilet paper orientation option on the main screen!!!!
You could take pictures, get your things signed, eat and drink something (I tasted a very good beer, nonetheless) and do nice small talk with everyone.

Thanks to Daniels Wolf, who searched for me. It was a pleasure to meet you!

To people who are going to go to next events: go!! It's worth! Go!

I'm glad to read this, even though I wasn't able to come! :-)

München was great. Lots of people, a great demo and a nice chat with the devs and fellow Thimbleweed-Fans.

After hours of riding the train, I will join home soon again. 1.5h left.

Hope Berlin and London are going to be as much fun.

BTW: When you play the demo, don't just do what you have to do. Instead go explore in *all* directions before doing the main thing. Especially in the beginning.
