Yesterday, Many indie Programmers partnered together to hold the Nindies New Year Sale on the Nintendo Switch eShop. One of those developers was poor Toybox, who discounted its point-and-click adventured game Thimbleweed Park to $14.99 as part of the sale. Following this sale dropped off, several of the game’s programmers held an AUA (Ask Us Anything) on /r/NintendoSwitch, which some intriguing information was shown by Thimbleweed Park programmer Ron Gilbert.
For people who don’t understand, Ron Gilbert worked on several famous LucasArts adventure games such as The Secret of Monkey Island and co-founded Humongous Entertainment, known for series including Putt-Putt along with Pajama Sam. When asked about the way Thimbleweed Park offered on Switch during the AUA, he gave a bit of insight on how it has done. While we did not Acquire specific earnings numbers, he did reveal that Thimbleweed Park sold best on PC and Nintendo Switch:
“The game has sold the most copies available on Steam, but Switch is #2. ”
Even though PC being the major platform for earnings isn’t astonishing, as adventure games are extremely much at home on this stage, the game acting as well as it did Switch is astonishing to me. Point-and-click adventure games aren’t anything that you typically connect with Nintendo consoles, and also the Switch was actually the last console the game created its way to.
This implies Thimbleweed Park outsold both Xbox One and PS4 in Only over three months on Nintendo Switch. That being said, he does say in a different AUA reaction that “the most enthusiast excitement” came in the announcement of a Nintendo Switch variation, so there must have been quite a little expectation for this version of the game.
Later on from the AUA, the participating developers were asked regarding bringing some of the potential projects to Nintendo Switch. Ron Gilbert gave the commented the following, which can be quite hopeful for Nintendo lovers of his:
“Switch is amazing, I will’t picture not discharging our next game on Switch. ”
Thimbleweed Park is currently available on PC, PS4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, iOS, and Android. If you wish to see DualShockers’ ideas on the name, you can check out our review.
