New Thimbleweed Park trailer channels Maniac Mansion

Special Agent Ray of sunshine.

Thimbleweed Park, the old-school point and click adventure game from the creators of Maniac Mansion, continues to look promising.

Ron Gilbert, who's working on the game alongside fellow LucasArts alum Gary Winnick, released a new trailer, below, which does a decent job of setting the scene. Special Agent Ray, one of five playable characters, narrates.

A quick refresh, via the official blurb:

Lost along a dusty stretch of highway, the town of Thimbleweed Park once boasted an opulent hotel, a vibrant business district and the state's largest pillow factory, but now it teeters on the edge of oblivion and continues to exist for no real reason. It's a town that makes you itch and your skin crawl. It's a place no one ever looks for, but everyone seems to find.

Thimbleweed Park is the curious story of two washed up detectives investigating a dead body found in the river just outside of town. It's a game where you switch between five playable characters while uncovering the dark, satirical and bizarre world of Thimbleweed Park.

Thimbleweed Park raised $626,250 on Kickstarter back in December 2014. It's due out late 2016 for Windows, Mac, Xbox and Linux. Android and iOS versions follow soon after.
