"Smart, thoughtful, sweet and incredibly well crafted – it’s the perfect game to play in the small hours of a lonely night. Be warned though; it’ll leave you hungry for unknown roads and longing for an invitation to the blues."
Rock, Paper, Shotgun

"Evokes the feeling of old ghost stories told around a campfire. There's the familiarity of friends and family around a warm, man-made fire, but with it comes the unnerving tale of the strange and unusual. Kentucky Route Zero is beautifully bizarre and perfectly poignant, and most of all, deserves your attention."

9.5 - Destructoid

"However you respond to its ethereal imagery, this is a game which makes a rare suggestion: who a player is may be more important than what they do."

À propos de ce jeu

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 Elliott 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. Acts I, II and III are available now. The remaining two acts will be released as they're completed. Taken as a whole, Kentucky Route Zero is roughly the length of a summer night.

Key Features

  • 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.
  • Wander the highways of Kentucky.
  • Make some friends before morning.

Three years in and I'm still waiting patiently for the last two acts. It's just that good, I do NOT regret my purchase.

I had heard such good things about this game so that made me even more disappointed when I finally played it. There seems to be a fanatic cult following for it but I don't understand why. It is not a very good game. It started out really cool and interesting... BUT then it quickly became a bore. The nuance dies out pretty quickly in this game and before you know it, it just becomes a chore to go anywhere. You play as one of the slowest moving characters of any game ever, which wouldn't be such a bad thing if there were actually cool things to look at, but unfortunately, you get sick of the stark boring environments pretty quickly. They could have made this game so much more. It is just too bad it turned out the way it did. Do NOT buy this game at $24.99, a total rip off. I wouldn't buy this game for anything more than $8.00 (actually I wouldn't but this game at all). It simply isn't worth the asking price. It just ends up a boring game.

Amazing game that with every episode did something so cool that yes I'm not made that so far it's been about an episode a year. What I love most about KRZ is it's use of game play mechanics, to tell stories in such a way that it communicates things that are pretty darn near impossible to say not in novels but by design. Keep it coming team your work inspires me.

A game about exploring the weirdness along the roads and highways of Kentucky, KRZ is a memorable journey through a variety of unique and interesting environments with a wonderful cast of characters. The visuals are beautiful and the dialogue is the best I've ever seen in a game; both perfectly capture the essence and pull you into the story and world that it creates. Although the waits between acts have been lengthy, you will find it well worth the wait when you see what they accomplished with the time (Act III came a couple years after Act II but is the most fleshed out, diverse, and impressive to date).

If you love games with distincitve visuals, extraordinary dialogue and characters, and a bit of surreal mystery, this game is 100% for you. See you on the Zero.

Tonally immaculate. Hyperbole be damned - this is a singular experience. Eagerly anticipating the next chapters so I can write something more meaningful.

This game is like being in a dream. It's about achieving one specific goal, but it's strangely incoherent and nonsensical. I begin to get immersed in the surreal stories and different experiences along the way and almost forget the original purpose of it all, and by the time it's over I don't think I'll have remembered why it ever began.

Even if the developers were to quit right now, and not release any of the other planned chapters, this would still be the best game ever made. Ignore the recent spate of downvotes - the gaming community needs to learn patience.

While the first three acts are intruiging and fun to play, I cannot recommend this game simply because of the ridiculous amount of time it has taken to release the last episodes. When I purchased this game in Spring 2013, it was promised that the remaining 5 episodes would be released within a year. Act 2 was released in May 2013, and act 3 was released in May 2014. We have been waiting on act 4 for two years, an inexcusable amount of time given what was advertised initially. Do not purchase until it is clear this game is not abandonware.

This game is broken up into five acts, the first of which was released in January 2013, nearly 3.5 years ago. The developers said they had intended to release a new episode every three months, which would have wrapped the game up by April of the following year. As of now, we still only have three episodes. There were also very few progress updates until recently, leaving customers in the dark as to its status for a long time. The developers insist that the game is still being worked on, but the fact each act only takes around three hours to finish would seem to suggest the developers aren't putting a whole lot of effort into a timely completion. It's a shame because the acts that are out are really good, but the constant delays and the developers lack of a sense of urgency force me to not recommend it.

The game is good, but the time it takes for new episodes to be realeased is a little confusing. I understand that episodic games are developed by each chapter, but 2 years? Really? I con't really reccommend this game because of this.

Unfortunately, it looks like I'll be waiting quite a few more summer nights before I get to play through this game's full story.

What is there so far is nice, but it's been so long since the early chapters that I decided to wait until the whole thing is done to finish it. I can't say I honestly reccomend it in its current state, but it does look like it will be worthwhile once it's finished.

It's the kind of game you play early in the morning with a mug o' coffee.
OR late at night after taking a shower... with a mug o' coffee.
because the first few parts of this game is slow paced as fu**
But it does get interesting in the most odd ways.

PS: The flow of the dialogue in this game is very interesting, if you're into non-linear type of stuff, check this game out.

I don't say this lightly, but I consider Kentucky Route Zero the greatest achievement in video game narrative to date. This game is so unique, so sublime, that it's hard to even describe what makes it so good. The subtext in the dialogues, the eerie beauty of the art, the melancholy, the sensation of weird that that makes you shiver as you navigate the world. It's magical realism in the American South, and each chapter is better than the last.The team at Cardboard Computer has really done their homework. I'd say that I'm anxiously awaiting the last two chapters, but nah, let them take all the time they need to finish this masterpiece.

Si la direction artistique et le talent narratif qui habitent les équipes derrière le jeu sont indéniables, Kentucky Route Zero pêche pour l'instant d'un certain manque d'intérêt. Au final, on se contente d'errer dans des décors magnifiques et mystérieux au fil des dialogues absurdes sans jamais trop savoir où l'on va.

Le second épisode est en plus clairement en deça du premier, la première zone (et la moitié de l'acte) étant tout simplement affreuse. Peut-être vaut-il mieux attendre que le jeu se dévoile encore un peu plus pour craquer.

(Le jeu est en 5 épisodes au total. Pour l'instant seul les 2 premiers sont sortis) Une expérience intriguante : on dirait une sorte de point'n'click light, mais plus on avance moins il y a de puzzles. Ça devient une sorte de théatre intéractif, l'histoire est écrite et figée (avec des choix juste pour la forme), mais on peut choisir ce que disent les personnages lors des dialogues (parfois persos en même temps) pour choisir suivant l'humeur du moment comment on veut teinter leur passé. La progression se fait malgrès tout facilement car les graphismes sont supers jolis et hypnotisants, petits tableaux très graphiques et mystérieux. Un coup de coeur! (Attention le jeu est dispo que dans un anlais très littéraire, et beaucoup de choses reposent uniquement sur le texte.)
