More additions coming to Thimbleweed Park? Speculation time frenzy!

I have just read this on Twitter:

We already know what is very likely to be added in the foreseeable future:

  • Arcade room
  • Ransome’s uncensored lines

Am I forgetting something that has been announced in the past?
What else do you hope for?!? :grinning:

(if your name is Ron and you have inside info, nobody will stop you from sharing it, even in encrypted form)

Some ideas:

  • A vacuum cleaner to pick up the specks of dust, hehe.
  • More Steam Achievements. Like one for releasing Willie.
  • Some light on who kidnapped an agent, killed Boris and put agent Reyes on the slab.

  • More info on the underground movement in the forest.

  • Find out why Mansion Mansion guy is digging. Maybe let him find something to dig up.

  • Reveal connection between Sherif and Chuck/the Tron3000 machines.

  • Additional puzzles!!

AFAIK that’s it. After the 2 items you mentioned it will be really “finished”.

Suggestions for more steam achievements:

Free Willie Let Willie out of his prison cell
Suddenly Leonard Get Leonard eaten by the carnivorous plant
What does god need with a starship? Get the Starship Isabella from Sexy Riker
Paleontologist Find the Dinosaur in the sewers
Childhood trauma Get spooked by Edna in the wireframe world
You ALL deserve a price! Give the trophy to Ron Gilbert, David Fox AND Gary Winnick
Format Wars Get the Beta Tape
Babel Fish Have all living characters drink the HaoLinKinLao Tea

I…honestly did not expect that!

What’s your fave/lucky number???

Oh no! Not the unbreakable XOR encryption!!!

OMG! Thanks! Thanks! Thatnks! :scream:

OK folks, here’s how it works:

  • 5 USD/EUR to my PayPal account: I give you a hint
  • 15 USD/EUR to my PayPal account: I tell you what the new additions are

It will be a pleasure to do business with you. :neutral_face:

OK, tried to XOR 69 it, then convert to ASCII, but it doesn’t work.

It’s a puzzle.

“Every puzzle has an answer”.

I tried hex to ascii converter, its not plain ascii.
I tried a XOR decoder tool that makes some guesses to key and key length, if its XOR it did not guess correct.

I then stumbled upon a whole bunch of very suspicious websites in looking for brute force XOR decoding, and concluded; I better stop trying.

Maybe it´s that illusive SCUMM that all the cool kids are talking about these days?

This reminds me of something…

Tried to open it as binary image, to no avail.

Tsk. Rookies. :neutral_face:

Your shameful failures and the confirmation that none of you have professional forensic tools, motivated me to increase the prices:

  • 10 pieces of eight to my PayPal account: I give you a hint
  • 30 pieces of eight and a rubber chicken with a pulley in the middle to my PayPal account: I tell you what the new additions are

It will be a pleasure to do business with you. :sunglasses:

I like the new crypto-currency you are accepting, instead of Bitcoins :joy:

I still have to send you the Secret of Monkey Island…

I renew my suggestion of an achievement: “Kill off Ron Gilbert ( by showing him the puzzle dependency chart of Broken Sword – a straight line)”

Yes, it’s quite a bit linear. But the money they didn’t invest in parallel puzzles, they invested in goats.

The thing that really would kill him off though probably, would be having to record another voice acting line.
