IGF finalist Kentucky Route Zero is out now, looks out of this world


The first act of Kentucky Route Zero, finalist in this year's Independent Games Festival, is now available. Developed by Cardboard Computer, the adventure game tells the story of "a secret highway in the caves beneath Kentucky, and the mysterious folks who travel it." It's also very, very pretty.

The game will be split into five acts. The first act is available now on PC and Mac, while the remaining four will be released "over the next year or so." All five acts can be purchased as a bundle for $25, with players getting access to acts 2 through 5 as they become available. The bundle also includes soundtrack MP3s and a monthly newsletter. Act 1 can be purchased individually for $7. All downloads are DRM-free, and a Linux version should be coming soon.

Now, if you haven't already, watch that trailer.
