Right from the beginning it’s clear that something weird is going on in Thimbleweed Park. The small town is hit by a murder and a body is dumped in a river, yet the residents of Thimbleweed Park don’t seem overly concerned about it, including the local Sheriff. The two federal agents who come upon the scene want to solve the crime but are also pursuing other, more secretive goals in the city. On top of that, there is clearly some kind of behind the scenes conspiracy working to stop the agents from completing their investigation. Thus begins a modern yet classical adventure game from Ron Gilbert and Gary Winnick of Maniac Mansion and The Secret of Monkey Island fame.
