1) Thimbleweed Park

Thimbleweed Park gameplay

At first, it’s easy to see why you would think this is a murder mystery game but it’s so much more than that. The more and more you play the weirder and deeper the game gets. You choose between 5 characters to play throughout the game each with their own personality and problems with each having their own agendas. It’s up to you to figure out what the overall mystery surrounding Thimbleweed Park is.

The five playable characters to choose from; Ransome the clown, Franklin, Agent Ray, Junior Agent Reyes, and Dolores (left to right) can all work together to figure out the enigma that is Thimbleweed Park.

The pixelated look gives the game a retro feel. It makes the fact Agent Rey and Junior Agent Reyes standing over a dead body less menacing.

All these games are great in their own ways but still just might be better than South Park: Stick of Truth. Play them for yourself to see if you agree.
