We may not have to wait much longer for Thimbleweed Park on Switch. In a tweet sent out to one fan, creator Ron Gilbert said that the team is targeting a release this month or next month.

The tweet reads:

Thimbleweed Park is a point-and-click adventure game that follows up on classics like The Secret of Monkey Island. Gilbert worked on the project along with Gary Winnick, who was also involved with the old titles at Lucasfilm Games.


Thimbleweed Park was announced for Switch last week. It’s a new point-and-click adventure game from Ron Gilbert and Gary Winnick, two of the developers known for classics like The Secret of Monkey Island and Maniac Mansion.

For now, Thimbleweed Park doesn’t have a specific release date on Switch. However, Terrible Toybox told Eurogamer that it’s “coming soon”.

A representative passed along the following note to the site:

“We’re waiting to announce a timeframe for Switch until we can be sure, so for right now it’s just ‘coming soon’. It’s in active development (as you can tell from Ron’s video!) so hopefully won’t be too long of a wait.”


Thimbleweed Park, a new game from Ron Gilbert and Gary Winnick, is officially heading to Switch. A video was posted today showing the title running on Nintendo’s system.

Here’s a look:

Thimbleweed Park is developed by Terrible Toybox. It’s considered to be a spiritual successor to Gilbert and Winnick’s adventure games Maniac Mansion and The Secret of Monkey Island.

Former LucasArts developers Ron Gilbert and Gary Winnick are currently finishing up their new point-and-click adventure game Thimbleweed Park. It won’t be on Switch immediately, but it sounds like it’s just a matter of time until it appears on the eShop.

Gilbert told Gamereactor:

“We’re gonna be at Xbox One at launch, Microsoft has a three month console exclusive. As soon as that period is up, we port it to the PlayStation 4, and I would love to be on Nintendo.”

“Nintendo is not particularly good at working with small developers and publishers initially, they like to go out to the big publishers and after a year they let smaller things in. We are definitely talking to Nintendo and as soon as we can do, we will port it.”

Thimbleweed Park is intended to be a spiritual successor of sorts to Maniac Mansion and The Secret of Monkey Island. You can watch a trailer for the game below.
