‘Thimbleweed Park’ iOS Review: Retro Point-and-Click Gaming for the Modern Age

Thimbleweed Park By: Terrible Toybox (Ron Gilbert) As a point-and-click adventure fan, I knew I was supposed to be excited about Thimbleweed Park when it was announced, but I'd be lying if I didn't say I had mixed feelings. As I mentioned here, I didn't grow up on LucasArts games, but rather those like Broken Sword. So I don't have any nostalgic attachment to the retro art or old school action verb…

My Week Unwrapped: October 2, 2017 – Flower, Kensho, The Witness, Ticket to Ride: First Journey, Harald and More

Hi everyone, and welcome back to My Week Unwrapped, where I discuss all the games I've been playing over the last seven days.

Thimbleweed Park is Out Now on iOS and Has Won Me Over

Thimbleweed Park By: Terrible Toybox (Ron Gilbert) I'm not going to mince words. When I first heard about and saw screenshots of Ron Gilbert's Thimbleweed Park, I had some excitement mixed with dread. Dread that it would mimic old retro games to a point that wouldn't be enjoyable for me. I'm very sensitive about games wasting my time, and a list of action verbs on the screen was not that appealing to…

Hi everyone! Last week I switched My Week Unwrapped to Mondays so I'm not rushing to get it out Sunday night. So far, that's been working great, but this is an insanely busy week for games that are both already out or releasing this week...even tomorrow!

Thimbleweed Park Coming to iOS September 19, First Impressions Inside

Thimbleweed Park By: Ron Gilbert Update: Thimbleweed Park is now out on iOS! I've heard that Ron Gilbert's Thimbleweed Park is inspired by the television show, Twin Peaks, but I didn't really know what that meant until I started watching the 1990 show about a week ago.
