Thimbleweed Park

So happy, even more, so I’m amazed with Thimbleweed Park , the new graphic adventure work of the parents of the great Mania


c Mansion that no !, have not gone crazy with this bet for the retro, to emulate in the playable, and also in the visual, those mythical video games that gave us so much joy in the late eighties and early nineties. What they are, they are geniuses, some creatives that are no longer abundant in this industry, capable of surprising once aga


in with an ingenious, fun and exciting graphic adventure that plays with nostalgia . It is one of your best weapons; a resource that explodes with such brilliance, with such grace, that the only thing I can tell you is that you buy the game without thinking.


It does not matter that you are veterans, that you know by heart the crazy adventures of Guybrush Threepwood and other heroes of the longed-for LucasArts ; or that this is almost your first foray into the genre, that you click on commands like “Use”, “Look”, “Give” or “Push” sounds like archaic, something from other times. What’s new about Ron Gilbert an


d Gary Winnick has the amazing ability to please everyone in a great way, being classic !, but at the same time also novel; With humor !


, yes, but also with much intrigue, suspense and, above all, puzzles and dialogueswith an infinite charm. This game is pure love; an ode not only to a genre by many no one but to a whole generation of amateurs, who will find in it one of those little treasures that are not easily forgotten.


Sweet and fun return to the past

Year 1987. A murder has been committed in the small town of Thimbleweed Park and two federal agents have gone to investigate the incident. Point! I do not intend to tell you anything more than an argument that, despite its apparent lack of originality, is the opposite! an imaginative story, masterfully written, with script twists that leave you with your mouth open

and much, much ingenuity in the way you put your enigmas. When you think you’ve seen it all … ZAS !, Ron Gilbert and his team surprise you with new challenges; unknowns that will make you smile plainly and simply because they are great, because you do
not expect them and in one way or another, they get more immersed if possible in the intricacies of a crime that will take more than 15 hours to solve.


Thimbleweed Park analysis

An insulting clown, a young video game developer, federal agents … the five protagonists are a charm! And they have a lot of charisma.

I’m honest. It costs me horrors not to go into details, to stay out, but at the end of the day you will thank me. Every step you take at Thimbleweed Park is an experience … I do not know, magical ?, incredible, that never ceases to amaze thanks to the crazy stories of the inhabitants of this small and mysterious town. His dialogues are written with an exquisite taste


; They are smart and funny, but also deep and brainy, even when they’re jokes! There are lots of them. I did not expect less from the creators of Maniac Mansion, who have known how to take advantage of nostalgia not only to make us smile with jokes and related comments, for example, with the eternal dispute between the fans of LucasArts and those of Sierra; also, and this is more important, the puzzles they benefit from it.

You have to live this adventure to understand all the magic and charm that comes off

They are classics, they are, but at the same time they feel original, unique, and in some way, also special. Yes, I know! exploring scenarios, chatting with outlandish characters and accumulating tons of objects in the inventory is nothing new, it is the holy grail of graphic adventures, but Thimbleweed Park, without leaving these basic rules, knows how

to surprise you with a series of challenges which are, at times, devilishly convoluted … although always logical. It is something that I appreciate
very much. The clues are there, scattered around the scenes, hidden in the dialogues, but they are there !, and finding them is an incredible sensation. I have shouted for joy after solving some of the most difficult puzzles, to then smile like a fool uncovering myself before the creative genius of a team of veterans who deserve all possible praise.

The video game is full of fun references to other movies, TV series or games of the time. What do you think about this job offer?

His work is brilliant at a level that is hard to describe with words. You have to live this adventure to understand all the magic and charm it gives off, but I tell you something; get back to the past, to the best time of LucasArts, and I think there is nothing more


valuable for a lover of graphic adventures than this; to return to feel the emotions that transmitted games like Monkey Island, Maniac Mansion and other classics of the time. Up to the five protagonists that we embody in this video game release that


charismaunequaled that makes you take care of them. His history, his past, his dialogues, the tics, his phobias, his sarcastic comments, his hobbies … everything in them is charming! And what I like the most is how their stories intermingle; how everything ends up making sense.

As in the classic Monkey Island 2 there are two levels of difficulty that modify the resolution of some puzzles.

It is also important to combine the skills of these adventurers to solve some of the most complex puzzles in Thimbleweed Park. It is not that they have special skills per se , but that they have unique knowledge that guarantees them to use very


specific objects. The federals with the tools to extract fingerprints, for example, or Delores and technology, because it is a videogame developer. How many jokes is made at the expense of this trade! Ron Gilbert and his team have no compassion whatsoever and, always ingeniously and very smartly, they describe the details of a profession in which they have proven to be simply great.
