To hear the press release tell it: "A haunted hotel, an abandoned circus, a burnt-out pillow factory, a dead body pixelating under the bridge, toilets that run on vacuum tubes... you've never visited a place like this before. Five people with nothing in common have been drawn to this rundown, forgotten town. They don't know it yet, but they are all deeply connected. And they're being watched."

You can look forward to all the intrigue and "toilets that run on vacuum tubes" you can handle in the game, launching on PC (Windows, Mac, and Linux) and Xbox One on March 30, 2017.

The game is initially coming to the Steam, GOG, and Xbox Live platforms, "with other stores to follow." The game will also be coming iOS and Android later this year. Pricing on all platforms will be announced closer to release.

At the announcement of Disney Interactive's discontinuation of console game publishing, Thimbleweed Park head Ron Gilbert stated he'd like to buy the Monkey Island and Maniac Mansion IP back from the company for "real actual money."
