Next year, gaming legend Ron Gilbert brings adventures to the couch with Thimbleweed Park. Here’s why you should care
Way back in 1990, a young man looking to make his fortune declared: “My name’s Guybrush Threepwood, and I want to be a pirate.” His game, The Secret of Monkey Island, wasn’t the first graphical adventure, but few others have embedded themselves so deeply in players’ hearts. Fast forward to today, and its creator, Ron Gilbert, is bringing that era of gaming to Xbox One with his latest adventure, Thimbleweed Park. Think Twin Peaks, with more jokes. And shades of blue.
