‘Use balloon animal with corpse’

Today at Microsoft’s gamescom conference in Cologne, Germany, The Secret of Monkey Island creator Ron Gilbert took the stage to announce that his upcoming adventure game Thimbleweed Park would be coming to Xbox One and Windows 10.

Thimbleweed Park raised over $626,000 on Kickstarter in late 2014, nearly doubling its initial $375,000 funding goal. The project is a spiritual successor to both Maniac Mansion and the Monkey Island series, aiming to evoke the experience of late ’80s/early ’90s adventure games. 

The title is also coming to Mac, Linux, and mobile platforms, and aims to launch by June 2016.
