Kentucky Route Zero
, for those of you that don’t know, is an allusive and weirdly magical 5-part episodic adventure game. Act II
, in theme with the game’s tone, has been secretly released overnight
, with no press release or official launch trailer. To my delight, I found it sitting in the Steam version of Kentucky Route Zero
, whilst I was simply installing it and not at all expecting the second act to have arrived.
Let’s get this out of the way - I have a lot of good things to say about Act II
. I’ll be spoiling minor cool moments from the Act
to illustrate why I love it, so PLEASE do yourself a favor and spend the hour that it takes to play this magical thing.
The Second Act
not only matches the wonder of the first, but develops on ideas in new and exciting ways. Simply said, Kentucky Route Zero
excels in atmosphere and storytelling, inviting you into it's bizarre and beautiful world, and you must go play it
