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.
Developed by Cardboard Computer (Jake Elliot and Tamas Kemenczy), the game features an original score by Ben Babbitt, along with a suite of old hymns and bluegrass standards recorded by The Bedquilt Ramblers.
The game is split into five acts, of which the first is available now. Taken as a whole, the Kentucky Route Zero is roughly the length of a summer night. Act I is available now. Act I and II are available now. The remaining three acts will be released over the coming year.
A focus on characterization, atmosphere and storytelling rather than clever puzzles or challenges of skill.
A unique art treatment inspired by theatrical set design.
A haunting score accompanies the ambient sounds of the bluegrass state.
