    Thimbleweed Park is an excellent adventure game, Ron Gilbert has conceive again a great "point and click" adventure.

    Thimbleweed Park feels like a masterclass in making a point and click adventure game. The story is excellent and full of humour and unexpected developments and the puzzles are well thought out and challenging. It feels almost exactly like playing a Lucasfilm Game from yesteryear and this is the highest praise I can give it.

    As improbable as it sounds, Thimbleweed Park has brought the Lucasarts adventuring heyday kicking and screaming like a three-headed monkey into 2017 with the sort of verve few would have expected. Thimbleweed Park is utterly essential for point and click adventurers everywhere.

    Thimbleweed Park takes advantage of a funny plot to offer a game that exhales nostalgia in every aspect. Tons of references, as well as a notable artistic work that make clear that retro is still enjoyable by certain players. Fans of the genre must have it, although the rest of gamers might see it just as an odd game.

    The Cabin in the Woods of point-and-click graphic adventure games. Its self-referential awareness of its own existence belies a level of thought and planning that simple parodies do not. It leans into the sins of the past, and comes out all the better for it. This isn’t a modern day triple-A title, but if you want a taste of why the Ron Gilbert classics are so beloved by many longtime gamers, Thimbleweed Park is a window into the past that shouldn’t be missed.

    Given the origins of Thimbleweed Park as a Kickstarter project, it’s not at all surprising to find that it’s firmly aimed at a very specific audience. To that end it does deliver, with interesting characters, an enticing core mystery, and loads of puzzles, all wrapped up in a package that closely follows the tenets of the those classic Lucasarts titles.

    Great and challenging point and click adventure with great dialogues and an interesting ending.
    My only negative point is that some riddles are almost unsolvable without the help of the internet.
