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.
The game is developed by Cardboard Computer (Jake
Elliott and Tamas Kemenczy). The game's soundtrack
features an original electronic score by Ben Babbitt
along with a suite of old hymns & bluegrass standards
recorded by The Bedquilt Ramblers.
