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:

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.
