In a not so subtle allusion to a Nintendo Switch port, Ron Gilbert has tweeted footage of Thimbleweed Park running on a Switch console, using the touchscreen functionality and everything.
Whilst this video has no explanatory narration, just the game’s audio, it’s cool seeing the classic nine verb menu and inventory working with a touch screen. Gilbert discussed his hopes for a Switch release earlier in the year, and now it seems that everything is coming together nicely.
There will be an announcement regarding Thimbleweed Park on consoles sometime next week, though it’s (almost) safe to say a Switch version of this rather well-received game is definitely in the pipeline.
Earlier in the year Gilbert spoke about the game with Alice and it’s cleverly adapted David Lynch-esque inspiration.
