Thimbleweed Park Kickstarter

Did you grow up playing those classic point-and-click adventure games people like Ron Gilbert, Tim Schafer, Gary Winnick, Dave Grossman, and Brian Moriarty made for LucasArts? If so, here’s a little treat for you.

In 1987 the Gilbert and Winnick title Maniac Mansion was released, which was followed by games like the The Secret of Monkey Island and its sequels, Zak McKracken and the Alien Mindbenders, Loom, and an adaptation Lucasfilm’s Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade.

Now Gilbert and Winnick want to deliver a brand new game made in that same old-school style. Why? Because they miss them and, according to their Kickstarter campaign page: “We want Thimbleweed Park to be like an undiscovered classic LucasArts’ adventure game you’d never played before. A game discovered in a dusty old desk that puts a smile on your face and sends a wave of nostalgia through you in the same way it does for us.” You can read more about the game and see the Kickstarter video below.

Release Date: April 23, 2014
Cover Price: $3.50

Mary wakes up in a dream world with her teddy bear and no memory. In the surreal, whimsical, and bizarre world of Bad Dreams, Mary soon finds herself set on a journey to free Mother Night from her imprisonment, so sleep can once again return to the dreamworld. She is joined by Nimrod, Sir Spanks (a Night Mouse Knight), Spide, and Shroom… all who seem to know just a little bit more about her than she does.

Bad Dreams is a surreal, all-ages comic. It has all the right mixes of fantasy, fairy-tale, mythology, and mystery thrown into the mix. Mary, our protagonist functions as a kind of everyman (or everywoman) who is inexplicably pulled into a conflict that she’s not really involved with. She must continue forward, though, because a mysterious and vindictive woman is after her and will stop at nothing to prevent the Mother Night’s release from her imprisonment.
