Wer ist eigentlich Paul?


Sounds like a salami.

Great, thanks! How could I miss that article?

Somewhere Ron wrote in an advertise for TWP “What is a thimbleweed?”. So I would assume that the second reason is right.

But the word itself and the spelling is hard to remember - similar to Threepwood or McKraken. Or was it MacKracken? Or McKracken? If you can’t remember the title of the game it is often hard to find on the internet (and/or Steam). I know what I’m talking about. :wink:

“Quest” isn’t a German word. :slight_smile: It translates to: “Paranormale Detektivsuche.”

Random thought: I would have really liked Mark or Octavi putting a lot of thimbleweeds in the cemetery field. It would have given a different meaning to the name “Thimbleweed Park”.

But weird words are often more memorable.

On a sidenote, if TWP was a hardcore murder sim, I might’ve been all like, “Oh shit! THIMBLEWEED PARK must be an anagram for BLEED WITH 'EM PARK!”

But it isn’t and I wasn’t.


I can’t understand all this difficulty.
It’s even simpler than playing Cuphead.


I believe there is a third reason - a subtle connection to the town name “Twin Peaks”.

For this “Thimbleweed” is not weird enough. :slight_smile:

That´s why my name isn´t Hans Schmidt.

Yes, you can even see how they played with that in the brainstorming paper, some of them were even closer to Twin Peaks.

I’m happy to hear that! You guys did a great job releasing on Switch ~6 months after launch while there were less than 150 games. The timing was probably coincidence for the most part, but I can’t imagine it having the same impact releasing on Wii U.

I don’t see TWP listed in the JP eShop. I’m guessing this is because Japanese is not a supported language.

When I told people about Thimbleweed, they thought I was talking about Tumbleseed, another game released around the same time on Switch. :stuck_out_tongue:

Yeah, Zac Mac Cracker is unforgettable as a title.

Uhm, a square one…

Just motiontrack the noseglasses over the googly eyes somehow…

Also while searching this I found something I will probably non-stop laugh at for the whole weekend.

The Newton Monster!


Looks like a project for the whole weekend. :wink:

Sure, but I´m busy…
