Story

Join Conway (and his dog!) in their truck as they travel across Kentucky, via a secret highway hidden in underground caves. You’ll meet mysterious people, explore and overcome challenges with your new friends.

Why we chose it

A slow-paced adventure game where magic and the real world collide, Kentucky Route Zero is focused on telling a story. You can discover new places, and have conversations with the strange people you meet. It is a beautifully designed, atmospheric game.

Where it came from

Kentucky Route Zero was developed by Jake Elliott and Tamas Kemenczy at Cardboard Computer. It was published by Annapurna Interactive. It was first announced on a crowd-funding website, Kickstarter, in 2011, before its release in 2013.

Where it went next

Kentucky Route Zero was released in five parts, between January 2013 and January 2020. It was described as ‘the most important game of the decade’ by Polygon.
