Release Date Locked In!!

Posted by Ron Gilbert & Gary Winnick (Creator)

Thank you for your massive patience as we pulled out our hair finalizing Thimbleweed Park.

We have now submitted Thimbleweed Park to the Xbox CERT system. What does that mean? It means that we’re finally confident enough to announce a release date for Thimbleweed Park.

So set your calendar reminders, make sure you’ve got your “I’m starting to feel sick” routines prepped for the day before release…

You’ll be able to play Thimbleweed Park on Thursday, March 30th!!!!!

Eh… what’s that you say? I backed this game over 2 years ago, you expect me to remember all the projects I’ve backed?! What’s it about now? What will I be able to play?

Here’s the short version:

In Thimbleweed Park, a dead body is the least of your problems. Switch between five playable characters to uncover the surreal secrets of this strange town in a modern mystery adventure game from the creators of Monkey Island and Maniac Mansion. The deeper you go, the weirder it gets.

More information is on our new, shiny Steam page. And you’ll notice we’re shipping with English voice, and subtitles in English, German, French, Spanish, Italian with Russian soon to follow.

PledgeManager Is Your Friend

Now that we’re going to release, there’s some boring formalities that will be coming your way soon to make sure you get the version you want and to get your reward.

We will be delivering rewards via PledgeManager. So if you haven’t gone to PledgeManager yet to check out your rewards, now’s the time. If you can’t find any emails from PledgeManager, go to:

If you can’t get in to your PledgeManager account and see Thimbleweed Park on it, go annoy Jenn by emailing

If you didn’t get any physical rewards, we will not collect your shipping address. So PledgeManager won’t let you enter that in.

If you did get physical rewards, we’ll be working on shipping them out to you a few months after the game has launched. Right before we actually ship we’ll send you a message via PledgeManager to double check that your shipping address is still up to date. Feel free to log in now and update it now if you have no moving plans in the foreseeable future.

I Want MORE Updates!

As we head towards launch you’re likely to get more updates that we’ve been doing previously from us via Kickstarter and PledgeManager. However, we’ll always give more news via the Blog and twitter and Facebook. So follow them if you want to know more about release and other sweet deals.

      Well done for actually putting an update for this KICKSTARTER game, here on KICKSTARTER, where it was funded! It makes sense to keep KICKSTARTER stuff all together.

      *marks 30 March on her calendar*

      Really looking forward to getting my GOG code for this. Excellent work.

      Hey boss, look behind you, a Three-Headed Monkey!

      Awesome news! You guys have done an amazing job with this and I've absolutely loved following the progress through your blog and podcasts especially. It has been very inspiring.

      With Thimbleweed Park I'm sure it's not yet another "fine leather jacket", to quote your earlier great games.

      THANK YOU.

      "Switch between five playable characters"…


      Surely not a coincidence, in the same month as Nintendo's new console launch! Can we expect Thimbleweed Park on the Switch? :D

      Man, House of Many Doors, Night in the Woods, Torment, now Thimblewood?

      I need more hours in the day for all of these games coming out at once!
