Ron Gilbert’s Thimbleweed Park gets new screens showcasing the places we’ll be exploring when the game releases early next year.

Thimbleweed Park

Thimbleweed Park, the upcoming point-and-click adventure from Maniac Mansion creator Ron Gilbert is set to release early next year. Today we get a fresh look at the game, which is being developed alongside fellow LucasFilm Games veteran Gary Winnick and tells the story of two Federal Investigators looking to uncover a mysterious murder in the game’s titular town.

The new screenshots showcase a variety of new locales players will explore in Thimbleweed Park, including a bookstore, post office, convenience store, and a rather dingy hotel room.

Thimbleweed Park is slated to release in the first quarter of 2017 on the Xbox One, Windows, Mac, and Linux, with iOS and Android following a few months later. Stay tuned for more details on this exciting game from one of the genre’s most notable developers as the game’s release draws near.

In case you missed it, here’s a trailer introducing one of the game’s main characters, Delores Edmund.
