The PC Version of Thimbleweed Park Received a Free Expansion
New Expension for Thimbleweed Park
The old-school adventure gameThimbleweed Park from Terrible Toybox Studios got a free expansion last weekend. This was reported by the developers in the official microblog of the game.
Delores: A Thimbleweed Park Mini-Adventure is available for download exclusively on PC (Steam, Epic Games Store).
As the name implies, Delores: A Thimbleweed Park Mini-Adventure is dedicated to Delores Edmund, the aspiring game designer from the original Thimbleweed Park.
After the events of the main game, Delores decided to take a break from work at the MMucasFlem Games studio and got a job as a photographer in the Thimbleweed Nickel News newspaper. In the new episode, the heroine will have to evaluate the changes that have occurred in her town.
The developers say that for the continuation of the solo adventure in this expansion, the acquaintance with the original game is not required. In addition, despite the independence of the expansion, the chapter lacks details to claim commercial viability.
Delores: A Thimbleweed Park Mini-Adventure was conceived as a prototype for the new game engine of one of the creators of the Monkey Island series named Ron Gilbert. But in the end, the Terrible Toybox team decided to release the game for free to brighten up the everyday life of players in these difficult times.
The original Thimbleweed Park was released in March 2017 on the PC and Xbox One, in August it was released on the PS4, and in September on the Nintendo Switch. Funds for the development of the project were collected through the Kickstarter crowdfunding service.
