The iconic developer behind Monkey Island and Maniac Mansion Ron Gilbert will be returning to the genre that made him famous back in the late 80s. 30 years removed from the creation of the SCUMM engine for LucasArts, Gilbert will finally put out a new game created in the vein of his classics at the end of the month.
Thimbleweed Park will be released on the PC on March 30, two and a half years after it succeeded on Kickstarter to the tune of $626,250.
Gilbert is free to break out his twisted sense of humor
Ron Gilbert is an all around nice guy and a joy to listen to if you've ever heard him on podcasts. People with the name "Ronald" generally tend to be.
However, you can tell in many of his games that he has a bit of a dark sense of humor, especially in his early hits like Maniac Mansion and Zac McKracken. Much of this humor was toned down as he found more mainstream success through Monkey Island, but as you can plainly see in this trailer, he has made to attempts to hold back this time.
I didn't back Thimbleweed Park because it came about after I went dark from Kickstarter, but I'll be sure to play it. This was my childhood before I allowed to have an NES, and Gilbert's games are the extent of my nostalgia on PCs.
