Thimbleweed Park [PC] free Download
Thimbleweed Park is the curious story of two washed up federal agents called in to investigate a dead body found in the river just outside of town, bloated and pixelated from a death come too soon.
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.
Thimbleweed Park takes place in 1987, not at all coincidentally the year Maniac Mansion was released. The game is thick with references both to the decade and to the games that preceded it, and the fourth wall doesn’t survive more than a few minutes after the game’s beginning.
Thimbleweed Park spends its first few hours reminding you again and again that it’s an adventure game, just like the ones you loved, either through sly references in background art or in dialogue, or more deliberate and overt ones. Two separate characters take the time to talk about the superiority of the LucasArts “no fail, no death” style of adventure games over the Sierra Online style full of save states, dead ends, and actual death.

It gave me a chuckle the first time, remembering all the frustrating ways I’d met my end in Space Quest games, but the second time it just seemed like unusually old sour grapes. Thimbleweed Park tends to get in its own way with distracting asides like these, forgetting that a reference is just a reference — not actual humor.
