The Weekly: Cardboard Computer’s Kentucky Route Zero: Act 1
By Jeffrey Demelo on February 1st, 2013 (6 comments)
New games; every week. Every week; new, sweet, entertaining, brain-rotting video games. So many infact, that we often forget those "gems" behind during our end-year deliberations. Not any more. Each week, I'll be highlighting my favorite game released ; this way: the commenter have a target to flame, I have some notes for end-year headaches, and we all have fun!
Kentucky Route Zero is…strange to say the least. It’s a point-and-click adventure game minus the annoying troupes of the genre. Inventory-combination puzzles are tossed aside, leaving room for interestingly strange story-beats. In fact, much of KRZ revolves around the story being told; a story which the player shapes entirely through decisions in conversation while never really understands what, why, and how things will play out.
Kentucky Route Zero instantly feels like something special, and quickly proves itself to be. It’s a refreshing approach to the genre; even coming so soon behind the finale of Tell Tale’s The Walking Dead: Season One. That’s saying enough.
Honestly, this game may have been my favorite title of the month of January. It’s…it’s…just check out the trailer below. Then, GO BUY IT!
Till next Weekly...
