Greetings from mysterious Thimbleweed Park! Since their March 30 release, Thimbleweed Park's developers have been at work on behind-the-scenes additions you may want to know about.

NEWLY AVAILABLE

Thimbleweed Park now has Xbox Play Anywhere support -- that means if you own the Xbox version you also own the Windows 10 version, and vice versa.

Russian subtitles were added in a recent update. Наконец-то!

An "annoying in-jokes" toggle has been added to the game menu. Intrigued by Thimbleweed Park but not a mega-fan of all the Lucasfilm games that came before it? Now you can enjoy Thimbleweed Park without a bunch of geeky adventure game references getting in the way.

ABOUT THIMBLEWEED PARK

Thimbleweed Park is a mystery adventure game by Ron Gilbert and Gary Winnick -- the creators of Lucasfilm adventure games Monkey Island and Maniac Mansion -- that brings back all the good stuff you remember from classic adventure games with none of the stupidity.

Switch between five playable characters to uncover the surreal secrets of a strange town where all technology runs on vacuum tubes (even the toilets!), a conspiracy theorist dressed up like a giant slice of pizza wanders the streets, and no one seems to care that a dead body is slowly pixelating under the bridge. The deeper you go into Thimbleweed Park, the weirder it gets.

    Subject A-119 makes a strong showing with a variety of abilities, but the puzzles, through mechanical and logical limitations, quickly fatigue the player. Puzzle addicts might be tempted to explore this title but, overall, Subject A-119 mechanics are more confusing than the actual puzzles, ultimately leaving players underwhelmed.

  • Black the Fall Review

    Black The Fall has the makings of a deep and emotional retelling of life under a totalitarian communist regime. The literally dark, oppressive, and intimidating imagery combines with the music, sound effects, and mechanics to narrate scenes without using a single word, and that alone has to be respected.

  • The Falling Nights Review

    The Falling Nights is clearly a passionate undertaking; taking four years of development to make. This feels like an incredibly ambitious title for a studio that is just starting to find its bearings. Delusion Arts Entertainment shot for the moon on this one, but they'll have to settle for landing amongst the not-so-bright stars of inconsistent design choices, cheap scares, and overall graphical muddiness.

  • RiME Review

    RiME is a wonderful experience filled with both light-hearted excitement and touching emotional moments. It invokes the old cliché, “I laughed, I cried,” but, of course, that doesn’t do justice to the amount of effort it took to coordinate the vivid yet dreamlike artwork, the fun and easygoing gameplay, and the dramatic musical score. It’s unfortunate that the graphics can be choppy and the movement can be finicky. Otherwise — especially if you value aesthetics over fun — this is an incredibly satisfying title.

  • Impact Winter Review

    Impact Winter may have just a few too many issues now, but the real reason it isn’t a must-buy is that it would be much more fun if you were just a lonely man wandering the wasteland for items to make your church better. Instead, you must keep wondering if the campfire burnt out, and if the nearly-useless compatriots huddled around it are slowly dying now because no one knows how to throw another damned baseball bat into the embers.
