Los amantes de las aventuras gráficas, aquellos juegos de ordenador que vivieron su máximo esplendor entre la segunda mitad de la década de los 80 y primera mitad de los 90, estamos de enhorabuena porque Ron Gilbert y Gary Winnick anuncian el lanzamiento de una campaña en Kickstarter para desarrollar un nuevo juego "old-school point & click adventure":
I'm going to keep this short.
Several months ago, Gary Winnick and I were sitting around talking about Maniac Mansion, old-school point & click adventures, how much fun we had making them and how amazing it was to be at Lucasfilm Games during that era. We chatted about the charm, simplicity and innocence of the classic graphic adventure games.
We had to call them "Graphic Adventures" because text adventures were still extremely popular. It was a time of innovation and taking risks.
"Wouldn't it be fun to make one of those again?", Gary said.
"Yeah", I replied as a small tear forming in the corner of my eye*.
A few seconds later I said "Let's do a Kickstarter!".
After a long pause, Gary said "OK". We immediately started building the world and the story, layering in the backbone puzzles and forming characters around them. From the beginning, we knew we wanted to make something that was a satire of Twin Peaks, X-Files and True Detective. It was ripe with flavor and plenty of things to poke fun at.
So we're doing an Kickstarter for an all new classic point & click adventure game called "Thimbleweed Park". It will be like opening a dusty old desk drawer and finding an undiscovered Lucasfilm graphic adventure game you’ve never played before. Good times for all.
