Called Delores: A Thimbleweed Park Mini-Adventure
it was put together in isolation using existing assets from the 2017 adventure game Thimbleweed Park
. Created as a prototype for Ron Gilbert's new adventure game engine, the use of existing assets means "it is not a sequel to Thimbleweed Park and is probably missing all of the small bells and whistles that would make it a commercially viable game".
That said it's free-to-play and currently available on Steam
. Here's the description.
The year is 1988. Adventure game developer Delores Edmund, on hiatus from her job at MMucasFlem Games, has returned to Thimbleweed Park for a quick vacation. While she’s home, she’s making some extra money as a photographer for the Thimbleweed Nickel News.
Fan will no doubt get a kick out of seeing returning faces and places, and with Ron Gilbert at the helm - continue the Maniac Mansion and The Secret of Monkey Island vibes that made the 2017 Thimbleweed Park a success. And as a nice little bonus that game is currently 60% off - and available for $11.58 AUD.
