Thimbleweed Park is truly a game unlike any I’ve ever played before. A true mystery game that takes on the majesty that is point and clicks adventure, but allows you to bring it on the go with you. This game has amazing voice acting all the way through, and really goes the extra mile to tell you a magnificent story.

Thimbleweed Park is set in the 80’s mostly but there are some bits of time travel. I won’t spoil the game for you, but it does get quite crazy. You control a few different characters first be two agents Ray and Reyes. They are looking for a murderer and it is up to the three of you to solve it. Along the way, you will learn about the other weirdos in this town and even control a few of them. There are some super annoying characters that actually are the same person because it isn’t so easy making so many characters. But, in hindsight, it was actually quite humorous.

The story is rife with exploration and so many different things to pick up. You cannot be sure what you might or might not need. So if you can pick it up, do so. This game will give you so many items that you will have quite a stuffed inventory but it’s interesting seeing how the characters react to certain items.

This game offers up a decent mystery and you may find yourself stuck. Don’t worry though, there is an automated tip line in-game. Just find a phone and call the given number and bam, you can get help on just about anything in the game. There are moments where it won’t work, and that just means you are already doing the right things.

Thimbleweed Park is clearly a game that the creators put a lot of time and effort into. It is one of those labor of love games, that you play and you smile. As a Kickstarter game, it also is just so cool to see that so many people wanted this game to exist. With the creators of the game being backed by so many no wonder they truly put their heart and souls into this game.

If you need a great mystery to solve then this is certainly a game for you. When I played this game I was in the throes of practicing for a production of Sherlock Holmes the Hound of the Baskerville, and this game just fit right into my mental state. This game is truly something worth playing. The voice acting is top notch, the game is well done and reminiscent of classic games, and it will have you yearning to find out how this all ends. So, head down Thimbleweed Park and help the “federinos”, they need your help, there’s a murderer on the loose!
