Kentucky Route Pitstop: Here And There Along The Echo

Kentucky Route Zero isn't just gaming's finest slice of magical realism and shaggy dog symphonies, it's also a magnificent feat of myth-making. Like so much Americana, it straddles the line between fact and folk tale, and finds recognisable unrealities along the road to the grave. If the melancholic dramas of the main episodes take place at centre stage, the occasional interludes aren't the entertainment in…

Kentucky Route Zero – Act III review

Here at RPS, we're quite fond of Cardboard Computer's magical realist adventure. Kentucky Route Zero took the final spot in our 2013 Advent Calendar and while the wait for the third act has been longer than I would have liked, it's good to have Conway and his companions back in my life. The new chapter of gaming's strangest trip since Sam and Max hit the…

Open Road: Kentucky Route Zero Act III Out Now

An old time radio crackles into life, the dial set between nowhere in particular and somewhere else entirely. The voice that speaks could warble with the best of them but it catches on the hooks and snags of age. The accompaniment is the picking of a banjo and the wail of a harmonica. A boot thumping against a dusty floorboard, that's percussion. This is how…

Introducing Last Life, Aka ‘Kentucky Route Zero In Space’

You might remember that we liked sleepy-as-the-night, sharp-as-a-knife adventure Kentucky Route Zero quite a lot. We even gave it game of the year, doncha know. So when Last Life creator Sam Farmer told me his game was best described as "Kentucky Route Zero in space," I nearly warbled with glee. The noir-themed tale of a detective trying to solve the mystery of his own murder…

Still Not On The Road To Kentucky Route Zero Act III

[Waves arms wildly]I DON'T HAVE RELEASE DATE FOR YOU DON'T GET EXCITED[/waves arms wildly]Wolf Among Us isn't the only recent episodic game playing silly buggers with our expectations: there's still no sign of when the passenger door episode III to RPS GOTY 2013 Kentucky Route Zero will open and offer us a ride down its strange, whip-smart highway. To some degree I'm less troubled by…

The Amazing & Astonishing RPS Advent Calendar: Day 24

This is it. The 24th door. The panel behind which every developer on Earth desperately hopes to be. Last year it was Far Cry 3. In 2011 it was Skyrim. 2010 saw Minecraft grab it, 2009 went to Dragon Age, in 2008 it was World Of Goo, and the very first was Portal in 2007.So what is it this time? Did you guess?

Insanity: 30 Games From Hotline, KRZ, More Devs For $15

This is probably the most exciting game-related anything I've seen in months. And yes, as the headline suggests, it's entirely bonkers. Remember Zineth developer Arcane Kids' Tribes-meets-Tony-Hawk thing Perfect Stride? Well, it's just one of 30+ games (23 of which are already finished and playable) that'll immediately be yours if you hand LA Game Space a pithy 15 of your bacteria-and-filth-ridden Human Dollars. Experimental Game…

Surprise! – Kentucky Route Zero Act II Out Now

Making something that's really, really different from all the other things takes time. The first Act of Kentucky Route Zero, for instance, was a perfectly serene drop in this industry's bellowing ocean of shooty shooty bang bang madness, a soul-rehabilitating triumph that plucked both heart and banjo strings just so. Part traditional adventure, part ode to theater, it was so very effortlessly bizarre and bold.…

Kentucky Route Less Than Zero: Limits & Demonstrations

Have you been on the fence about Cardboard Computer's magnificent Kentucky Route Zero? Well, get down from there, you. It's dangerous, and honestly, you just look silly. I wasn't going to say anything, but everyone's talking about it. OK, OK, since you're apparently either very stubborn or a cat, let's try enticing you down. How about a demo? It's not just any regular old nipped…

What Lies Ahead For Kentucky Route Zero

Yesterday, we began our journey down the winding highway that runs through Kentucky Route Zero co-creator Jake Elliott's brain, and today, we'll resume it. But while looking back is all well and good (especially on brain highways, where traffic's fierce and blind spots can hide unspeakable dangers), doing it at the expense of moving forward is unwise. So now it's time to delve into what's…

Interview: Kentucky Route Zero’s Mountain Of Meanings

Kentucky Route Zero is a joyously original, heartfelt thing. If you haven't already played it, go do that. If you have, then step on down to the RPS porch, pull up a slightly weather-worn deck chair, and let some soulful bluegrass overwhelm your senses. Easy, easy. The interview will begin soon, but for now, there's certainly no rush. Oh, fair warning: it's pretty SPOILERY. Co-creator Jake Elliott…

Kentucky Route Zero Act I review

Kentucky Route Zero tells a story about an underground highway and you can experience that story by pointing at things and clicking on them. So is it a point and click adventure? Sort of. But it's also a weird and wonderful bluegrass ballad, a poem about play, and a showcase for intelligent writing and gorgeous art. Here's wot I think.

Underground Metastate: Kentucky Route Zero

Ruins was a superlative, short-form exploration game starring a dog and the chaps behind it have now released the first part of their gorgeous adventure, Kentucky Route Zero. I don't know how well the humble canine is represented this time around but the game does include a "Civil War era battleship that ran ashore in an underground river hundreds of years ago and is now…
