Enjoy this Kentucky Route Zero play 'The Entertainment'

It's not the long-awaited Act III but it's welcome nonetheless

Whilst I check everyday to see if Act III of Kentucky Route Zero has downloaded, the folks at developer Cardboard Computer have released a standalone experience called The Entertainment. You'll take control of an uncredited actor portraying a drunken barfly observing events in a bar. Which is really a theatre. Which might not be real. Kinda.

Evelyn is confiding in Harry about her husband Ted who is out of town due to his job as a hammer salesmen. Evelyn's worried that Ted might be tempted to cheat on her but Ted's well, like, a good man. Harry's been on vacation to New Orleans, spent seven days beside the beach. Or was it the pool, hard to remember. Pearl's gonna make some changes; she's not gonna take care of her parents anymore, all they do is take advantage of her but they know Pearl will pick up their tab. A debt's a debt after all.

The Entertainment was performed one night in Buffalo in in 1973 and was written by Lula Chamberlain who was the artist that was featured in a gallery show last month that I posted about. At the time I wasn't sure if she was even real, as Lula appears in Act II of Kentucky Route Zero.

She was apparently an avant-garde artist during the 1960s but only gathered a small amount of acclaim. I hadn't realized that the Cardboard Computer guys put out a virtual gallery game called Limits & Demonstrations at the start of the year, which was a described as a "virtual retrospective." The Entertainment is worth experiencing (the song towards the end was lovely) but it's making me anxious to play Act III.
