Interview with the devs: Thimbleweed Park

In case you’ve been living under a rock for the last week or so, you’ll have missed the incredibly exciting news about Thimbleweed Park – a point and click adventure game currently under development with Kickstarter funding. The game  is a curious story about two washed-up detectives called in to investigate a dead body found in the river just outside of town.  Switching between five playable characters, you  uncover the dark, satirical and bizarre world of Thimbleweed Park. The Kickstarter was a great success – the team has already surpassed their initial goal and are busy working on their stretch goals – largely because Thimbleweed Park comes from [...]
