Conway drives up to an old gas station right off the 65 in the middle of Kentucky. Lights're off, but there's an old man sitting right there by the pumps, so it can't be abandoned. Gotta fill up and get some directions to Dogwood Drive. These antiques won't deliver themselves, you know. Old man tells Conway he's gotta take the Zero to get to Dogwood, and there's one problem with that: the Zero's not a simple highway to find.http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=gGQOaz1xFOo
Kentucky Route Zero is a magical realist adventure game about a secret highway in the caves beneath Kentucky, and the mysterious folks who travel it. Gameplay is inspired by point-and-click adventure games (like the classic Monkey Island or King's Quest series, or more recently Telltale's Walking Dead series), but focused on characterization, atmosphere and storytelling rather than clever puzzles or challenges of skill.
The game is developed by Cardboard Computer (Jake Elliott and Tamas Kemenczy). The game's soundtrack features an original electronic score by Ben Babbitt along with a suite of old hymns & bluegrass standards recorded by The Bedquilt Ramblers.
The game is split into five acts. Taken as a whole, the Kentucky Route Zero is roughly the length of a summer night. Acts I and II are available now. The remaining three acts will be released over the coming year.Available OnAmazonHumble StoreSteamSoundtrack Available on BandCampAct IAct IIAlso AvailableLimits & Demonstrations, a free sidestory and demo between Acts I and II
