Limited Run Games Testing Desire For Switch Titles Using Thimbleweed Park

Limited Run Games, the publisher of physical copies of games as collector's items, is gauging how much audiences are interested in buying Switch games.

"Our first game we'll be putting up for sale on the Nintendo Switch will be Thimbleweed Park," Limited Run says on their Twitter account. "The Switch version will be sold as an open preorder to help us gauge demand on the platform!"

"So Switch fans - this one is an open call for you to show up and give us a taste of how much demand exists on this lovely little platform" Limited Run says in a follow-up tweet. "If this is a success, we'll definitely consider open preorders on our future Switch releases."

Pre-orders for the Limited Run release go live at and 7 a.m. PDT and 10 a.m. EST on March 30 here. There will also be "Big Box Edition" of the game for PlayStation 4 and Switch for $64.99. The box contains a copy the game (unlike State of Decay 2's collector's edition), full-color manual, full-color interior print on the cover sheet, a newspaper, foldable menu poster, sticky notes, exclusive stickers and phone books for each console, and "a classic LucasArts style big box - just like you remember."  Thimbleweed Park released on Switch's eshop in September for $19.99.

In our Thimbleweed Park review, Elise remarks that "The narrative takes some twists and turns that didn't always hit home with me, but I enjoyed the whimsical journey nonetheless."
