Old gamers might remember Maniac Mansion, a 2D point and click adventure by Ron Gilbert and Gary Winnick. Well, they’re back, and… Let’s do a quote.
Twenty-five years ago, Ron Gilbert and Gary Winnick created the game that introduced the world to 2D point & click adventure games. Maniac Mansion took the computer game world by storm with its compelling story, complex puzzles, cutting edge humor, engaging game play, and provided an entire generation with a new idea of what an adventure game could be. Blah blah blah…
And now they are back together with an all new 2D point & click adventure game! Ron is skinny again and Gary had that rash looked at — and they’re here (finally!) to create the true spiritual successor to Maniac Mansion and Monkey Island.
Thimbleweed Park is a new game that cuts to the core of what made classic point & click adventure games so special, and done by the actual people who spawned the genre.
This game looks lovely. It’s being developed for Windows, Mac, and Linux, so no matter what OS you’ve got on your computer, you should be able to play Thimbleweed Park.
You’ll want the game, obviously, but there are more. Like an artbook, postcards, t-shirts, and so forth. Point and click away!
