Thimbleweed Park Coming to PlayStation 4 on Aug 22, Nintendo Switch in September

Four months into the Thimbleweed Park murder investigation, the oddball residents of this remote town still aren’t too bothered by that dead body pixelating under the bridge. Why not? Nintendo Switch and PlayStation 4 owners will soon find out!


  • As revealed on the PlayStation Blog, the PS4 version will release August 22 as a download from the PlayStation Store. The PS4 controls will be similar to the existing gamepad controls with a few added refinements that take advantage of the DualShock 4 Controller’s unique features.
  • On Nintendo Switch, Thimbleweed Park will support both Joy-Con controllers and touch screen controls so players can easily switch between tabletop, handheld, and TV modes. We don’t have a release date nailed down for the Nintendo eShop yet but expect it to be in September. Until then, here’s a sneak peek to whet your appetite:

In addition to these new platforms, Thimbleweed Park is available for Windows, Mac, Linux, and Xbox One, and in development for iPhone/iPad and Android. Learn more at

About Thimbleweed Park
A haunted hotel, an abandoned circus, a burnt-out pillow factory, toilets that run on vacuum tubes… in Thimbleweed Park, a dead body is the least of your problems. Five people with nothing in common have been drawn to this odd, rundown town. They don’t know it yet but they’re deeply connected. And they’re being watched.

Uncover the surreal secrets of this strange town in a modern mystery adventure from Ron Gilbert and Gary Winnick, the creators of Monkey Island and Maniac Mansion. The deeper into Thimbleweed Park you go, the weirder it gets.

Gaming since the Atari 2600, I enjoy the weirdness in games counting Densha De Go and RC De Go as my favourite titles of all time. I prefer gaming of old where buying games from a shop was a thing, Being social in person was a thing. Join me as I attempt to adapt to this new digital age!
