A compelling story about rural America that is both surreal and thoughtful, if a little disorienting.

An arrestingly surreal triumph that blends point 'n' click and text adventures with a unique style of storytelling and gameplay that was well worth the extremely long wait.

Though it seems to be a traditional adventure game at first, this is an enticing and bizarre tale unlike anything you've played before

Kentucky Route Zero is a coffee table book of a game. I don’t feel like you’re really supposed to try and take it all in as a whole.

Some players are sure to absolutely love that, while others, like me, would prefer something more grounded.

If you are into the slow burn kind of story then this is definitely for you, but if you're not then you may bounce off of the Zero.
