Thimbleweed Park, a new adventure in the style of classic LucasArts games, has smashed through its Kickstarter goal in one week.
Thimbleweed Park is the product of Ron Gilbert and Gary Winnick, two names that should be familiar to LucasArts adventure fans.
The pair described their new project as “like opening a dusty old desk drawer and finding an undiscovered LucasArts adventure game you’ve never played before”, a pitch which clearly has legs: the $375,000 Kickstarter is already fully funded, one week on from announce.
“I am at a loss for words. The support has been overwhelming and it’s making us giddy,” Gilbert wrote in an update to backers
“Before launching this Kickstarter, Gary and I debated endlessly if people would want a game that felt like it was made in 1987. A game made at the beginning of the golden era of point & click adventures. I think we have our answer. All 10,000+ of them.”
The pair have announced a couple of stretch goals including more language options, mobile ports and voice acting, with others to come if thee is enough demand.
