You ever feel lost, yet know exactly where you're going? Ever follow a trusted road, yet oblivious to its end? Sometimes the conclusion we seek is not ours to grasp, but for others to reach for us. Featuring five acts made in the span of seven years, Kentucky Route Zero is about a secret highway running through the caves beneath Kentucky. Mysterious people travel it, and some have stories you can hear or interact with. You are Conway, tasked to make a delivery to 5 Dogwood Drive, accompanied only by your dog. There is no fight, there are only stories, and the road we all travel.
KENTUCKY ROUTE ZERO is a magical realist adventure game in five acts, featuring a haunting electronic score, and a suite of hymns and bluegrass standards recorded by The Bedquilt Ramblers. Rendered in a striking visual style that draws as much from theater, film, and experimental electronic art as it does from the history of videogames, this is a story of unpayable debts, abandoned futures, and the human drive to find community.
