Yesterday, several indie developers partnered together to hold the Nindies New Year Sale on the Nintendo Switch eShop. One of these developers was Terrible Toybox, who discounted its point-and-click adventured game Thimbleweed Park to $14.99 as part of the sale. After this sale kicked off, several of the game’s developers held an AUA (Ask Us Anything) on /r/NintendoSwitch, which some interesting information was revealed by Thimbleweed Park developer Ron Gilbert.

For those of you who don’t know, Ron Gilbert worked on many popular LucasArts adventure games like The Secret of Monkey Island and co-founded Humongous Entertainment, known for series like Putt-Putt and Pajama Sam. When asked about how Thimbleweed Park sold on Switch during the AUA, he gave a bit of insight on how it has done. While we did not get specific sales numbers, he did reveal that Thimbleweed Park sold best on PC and Nintendo Switch:

“The game has sold the most copies on Steam, but Switch is #2.”

While PC being the leading platform for sales isn’t surprising, as adventure games are very much at home on that platform, the game doing as well as it did on Switch is surprising to me. Point-and-click adventure games aren’t something you usually associate with Nintendo consoles, and the Switch was actually the last console the game made its way to.

This means Thimbleweed Park outsold both Xbox One and PS4 in just over three months on Nintendo Switch. That being said, he does say in another AUA response that “the most fan excitement” came from the announcement of a Nintendo Switch version, so there must have been quite a bit of anticipation for that version of the game.

Later on in the AUA, the participating developers were asked about bringing any of their future projects to Nintendo Switch. Ron Gilbert gave the commented the following, which is quite hopeful for Nintendo fans of his:

“Switch is great, I can’t imagine not releasing our next game on Switch.”

Thimbleweed Park is currently available on PC, PS4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, iOS, and Android. If you want to see DualShockers’ thoughts on the title, you can check out our review.
