Kentucky Route Zero is described as a "magical realist adventure", but in the experience the game provides is rather indescribable. It's weird, really weird, but also rather perfect in its oddness. Act I takes just an hour to complete, yet in that hour the game captured the attention of so many gamers. And so we wait, quite anxiously to be honest, for each consquent act to be released. Today Act III was made available and with it our minds a little more lost.
Here's the full description of Kentucky Route Zero, taken from the game's official website. Like I mentioned above the text doesn't really convey the game in a meaningful way, but at least it should help gamers from purchasing the game without understanding the title's goals and premise:
"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. "
Pick up Kentucky Route Zero today via Steam or the Humble Store for $20, or lower depending on what sale is going on at the time. The first three acts of the game are out now, as well as an interlude that takes place between Act II and Act III. The final two acts are expected to be released over the next year. Indie devs have to take their time! This isn't a trailer for Act III, but here's a look at what the game actually looks like in motion.
