Later this month, Kentucky Route Zero will finally be a finished story, seven years after the release of the first part.

In an announcement today, the developer Cardboard Computer noted that the big update will also include all the free "interludes" they released between episodes, plus localization for French, Italian, German, Spanish (Lat.

Kentucky Route Zero is a magical realist adventure game about a secret highway in the caves beneath Kentucky, and the mysterious folks who travel it. Funded on Kickstarter (more projects here) way back in 2011, it was then released 2013 with the first Act.

You can pick up Kentucky Route Zero with all previous Acts from Humble Store, GOG, and Steam. The final Act and update is free.

I have long given up that we'll ever see the Act 5. This is a pleasant surprise.

Nice, I've been waiting to start playing it.

... and over three and a half after the last (fourth) one.

This is somewhat incredible.

Honestly, I'll believe it when I see it. Cardboard Computer burned all their goodwill years ago, as far as I'm concerned.

I expect any game they make in the future, particularly if it's episodic like this one, will be a hard sell indeed.

It's funny.
I think this was a game I got hyper for ages ago. But i told myself i would wait for it to be fully released before i buy.
So guess it's time to see what the reviews say and buy the whole thing.

KRZ is one of my favorite and one of the best story-driven games and has been consistently absolutely worth the waiting. I'm very very excited.
