I loved this game... all I want is for it to be on the Switch.

Nope. I have never understood the point of E3.

Thank you and I hate you! I will be spending the next couple of weeks exploring the dungeons....

Hmmm, looks interesting. I'll give it a try. Besides, if Ron loved it, it should be good right? 😀

Never been to E3, but I can appreciate the purpose of showcasing/validating new games that way. I think livestreaming and poor journalism made it look less useful for some. Then again, since I've never been to E3 perhaps I should just be quiet...

What's so special about the Switch? Why not just play on a PC?

Ron, can I ask you why you are so secretive this time with your new game?

Ron Gilbert 14h ago
I'm not "secretive". I'm just tied of feeding the hype-PR machine. I just want to build it in peace. Maybe that comes with getting older.

"Guild of Dungeoneering" turned out to be Awesome, thanks for sharing Ron 👍

@Brian Goldberg, I'm fairly certain it boils down to the fact that Nintendo Switch is more portable/comfortable than sitting/laying with a laptop or (God forbid) a stationary PC 😀

I am curious though as to why the game only supports Windows and MacOS.

Thimbleweed Park for example was ported to PS4, xBox and Switch. That's all three of the "Giant" Consoles. It was also made available on Windows, MacOS and freaking Linux ❤.

I remember Ron talking with David Fox and Gary Winnick in one of their Thimbleweed Park Podcasts and Ron mentioned that porting to the consoles involved a bit more "paperwork" and some tweaking/adjusting of the game to better fit each respective platform. Is it possible that it's too much of a hassle? Or perhaps too costly?
