By Marty Mulrooney

Thimbleweed Park

Thimbleweed Park is an old school point-and-click adventure game from the legendary creators of Monkey Island and Maniac Mansion, Ron Gilbert and Gary Winnick. Together with the rest of Team Thimbleweed, they have created a video game experience that evokes the classic LucasArts adventures of the late ’80s and early ’90s. Players take control of five characters with absolutely nothing in common who have all been mysteriously drawn to a rundown, forgotten town.
