Ce spun criticii

"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."

84/100 - PC Gamer

Despre acest joc

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.

If Franz Kafka watched too much Twin Peaks and had a drunken dream about it, this would be it.

My suggestion is to get the game on sale and enjoy the first 3 chapters. They are incredibly well done, a rare bit of gaming art. If the other two chapters ever come out, consider it a bonus.

Beautiful. Surreal. Mysterious. This is one of the kinds of games you can play after a long day of work to chill and ponder the meaning of life.

I am utterly in love with this game. Sure the episodes are short, and sure the wait between them is long, but playing this is like dreaming, and I just don't want to wake up.

This game really bums me out. There are so many things to like about it; the art, music, and atmosphere are all amazing. And the story is a wonderful surreal journey that you don't often find in games. It's really a shame that I wont recommend this game because it had such promise and I was looking forward to playing it before the first episode was even released.

But all that being said, the game is incomplete. You're always going to have to wait for the complete package in an episodic game, but after 2 years without news it seems like we wont ever be getting the rest of it. I played the game when episode 3 came out, and I can honestly say that I just don't care anymore. Even if episodes 4 and 5 eventually do come out, I probably wont bother playing at this point.

I fully recognize that this game is made by a really small development team and that these things take time, but whatever the reasons for the lack of updates, it doesn't change that the game has not not been added to in years. Charging $25 for 3/5 of a game without being up front about the fact that there's no schedule for the other episodes verges on deceptive at this point and no one should waste their time and money unless the full game is released.

If the game is ever completely I might consider going back and playing through the whole thing again, and will update my review accordingly, but for now it's barely more than half of a game that we probably wont ever see the end of, so there's no reason to play it.


Note: Regarding my play time, I actually played it quite a bit longer and completed episodes 1-3, but did so in offline mode so my time wasn't recorded.

Don't buy this thing until they finish it. Launched as a Kickstarter in 2011, it took two years for the first "episode" to be released. It's now two additional years after THAT and we don't even have a rough estimation for the release date of the fourth chapter. At this rate, we'll get a finished product in 2017. That's just unacceptable.
