Kentucky Route Zero is a surrealist indie episodic point and click adventure game, developed and published by Cardboard Computer, an independent studio consisting of Jake Elliott and Tamas Kemenczy. To acquire sufficient funding for the game, the project was first revealed on crowdfunding website Kickstarter to reach a goal of US$6,500, and successfully exceeded the goal, acquiring $8,583. It went into development and released a trailer on October 17, 2012. The game is separated into five Acts, following the narrative of a truck driver named Conway and the mysterious people he meets as he tries to cross the fictional Route Zero to deliver some products from the antique company for which he works.
The first Act was released on January 7, 2013, and is available on the creator's website and Steam. It is also possible to buy all five acts as a bundle. The second and third acts have since been released, with others forthcoming.
