Update with new conversations, hint line & more!

In Thimbleweed Park, a dead body is the least of your problems -- especially now that the game has received a big content update! The two biggest changes in this update are an in-game hint line and new conversations between playable characters.

In-Game Hint Line
Before there were walkthroughs and Let’s Plays, there were 1-900 numbers you could call when you were desperately stuck in an adventure game. (They cost $2 per minute!) We’ve brought back this classic feature with the HintTron 3000™. Dial 4468 (HINT) from any in-game phone to get context-sensitive hints for the part where you’re stuck. Luckily the HintTron 3000™ is absolutely free -- no outrageous phone bills from MMucasFlem!

New Conversations
Thimbleweed Park’s lead actors recently returned to the studio to record a bunch of new conversations amongst themselves. Now when two playable characters are sharing the screen, they can talk to each other instead of awkwardly standing around. Why? Because a lot of you asked for this feature, and we thought it was a good idea. Sometimes that’s all it takes. :)

Patch Notes for Build 1389.918:

  • Keys 1-6 select dialog choices.
  • Keys 9 and 0 cycle selectable characters.
  • Disable initializing the controller by putting disableController: 1 in Prefs.json
  • Playable characters do random greetings when seeing each other.
  • Playable characters can TALK TO each other.
  • Call the in-game hint line by dialing 4468 on any phone.
  • Various bug fixes.

Less In-Jokes, More Russian!

Did you notice anything different while playing Thimbleweed Park recently? Last week we quietly released an update that added in Russian language support. So if you’re a Russian speaker, know Russian speakers or want to learn Russian, spread the word that Thimbleweed Park can speak your language!

We also added in an update to hide the most annoying of our annoying in-jokes. Annoying in-jokes are now turned off by default. So if you want them on, you need to go to the options menu, click Video, and then enable “annoying in-jokes”!

We’re a little quiet on Steam. That’s partly because we’re not really sure what you’d like to see here. Let us know what you’re craving for in terms of validation, support, etc etc… and we’ll see what we can do.

We’re working on a little DLC for some future update. No timeline and no details as yet, but know that although we’re quiet here, we’re busily working away to keep making Thimbleweed Park better and better!

“A game that feels like a forgotten relic of LucasArts' heyday, but with enough touches to make it a little more relevant to a modern audience. It's fair to say no one makes them like this anymore.”
9/10 – Destructoid

“Thimbleweed Park blends the creepiness of Twin Peaks with the humor of Monkey Island in one stylish, successful package.”

“With its stellar characters and smart puzzles, Thimbleweed Park is a joy to play from beginning to end.”
8.5/10 – Game Informer

About This Game

Welcome to Thimbleweed Park. Population: 80 nutcases.

A haunted hotel, an abandoned circus, a burnt-out pillow factory, a dead body pixelating under the bridge, toilets that run on vacuum tubes... you’ve never visited a place like this before.

Five people with nothing in common have been drawn to this rundown, forgotten town. They don’t know it yet, but they are all deeply connected. And they’re being watched.

...Who is Agent Ray really working for and will she get what they want?
...What does Junior Agent Reyes know about a 20 year old factory fire that he’s not saying?
...Will the ghost, Franklin, get to speak to his daughter again?
...Will Ransome the *Beeping* Clown ever become a decent human being?
...Will aspiring game developer Delores abandon her dreams and stick by her family?
...And most importantly: how come no one cares about that dead body?

By the end of a long, strange night in Thimbleweed Park, all of this will be answered -- and you’ll question everything you thought you knew.

In a town like Thimbleweed Park, a dead body is the least of your problems.
