David Fox and Ken Macklin Join the Thimbleweed Park Team! 10 Dec, 2014 / 4 comments

More maniacs have joined the team for Ron Gilbert and Gary Winnick's Thimbleweed Park.

The first is Ken Macklin, who designed the cover for Maniac Mansion. He will be doing the cover for Thimbleweed Park as well.

Secondly, is the creator of Zak McKracken, David Fox. He worked on Maniac Mansion as well, doing most of the SCUMM scripting for the game, and is apparently the one we have to thank for the hamster in the microwave joke.

So if you haven't backed yet, or want to move up a pledge tier, now's the perfect time to head over to the kickstarter and back the game.

    Woo, that upcoming cover art is the most exciting thing about this for me. It's weird how we're suddenly getting a mountain of new point & click goodness every couple of years.

    Seems like they've covered just about the entire 1987 Lucasfilm Games team!
