    Kentucky Route Zero manages to cover fascinating new ground with each act, and I can’t wait to see where it goes from here. More importantly, I can’t wait to see all the strange sights along the way.

    Kentucky Route Zero’s excellent third act is no less weird than its predecessors, but hints at something unexpected: a coherent narrative.

    An absolute piece of after hours magic, not really a video game by any stretch. Just a bit of magic you've pulled in from the abyss and dressed up in interactive trappings before placing it on Steam. The set pieces are magnificent and so is that haunting, elegiac "Too Late To Love You Now" song. It's not about a particular meaning but about an experience.

    This third episode of Kentucky Route Zero has its ups and downs, but the adventure continues and it is still a fantastic trip.

    Act three is maybe less “spectacular” in terms of visual direction than the previous two, but it's another incredibly well written game, full of crazy ideas and fresh situations. It's also a very particular game, fully based on interactive narration. But by now you should know if you like it.

    Kentucky Route Zero is not, in any sense, a typical adventure game. It's an incredible one.

The addition of new characters creates better dialogue options than before (Ezra!) ,the story is evolving to be quite a surreal one, what with all the places and characters you'll be seeing all throughout 15ish scenes.

    Kentucky Route Zero already contains some of the most surprising and fascinating things to happen in adventure gaming for quite some time,Kentucky Route Zero already contains some of the most surprising and fascinating things to happen in adventure gaming for quite some time, only three of its five acts in. Act III builds on the foundations of the first two acts, adding new characters to your party, filling in more of Conway's story, and featuring a starling musical sequence. Cardboard Computer have justified its price tag with this act alone; when all five are released, this will be an essential purchase. Full Review »
