Fabulous atmosphere in this game by Cardboard Computers called Kentucky Route Zero, an adventure game inspired by old school point-and-click adventures spread out in five acts.
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. Gameplay is inspired by point-and-click adventure games (like the classic Monkey Island or King's Quest series), but focused on characterization, atmosphere and storytelling rather than clever puzzles or challenges of skill.
The game is developed by Cardboard Computer (Jake Elliott and Tamas Kemenczy). The game's soundtrack features an original electronic score by Ben Babbitt along with a suite of old gyms & bluegrass standards recorded by The Bedquilt Ramblers.
Act I of Kentucky Route Zero will be available on Windows and Mac in December 2012, with a Linux version shortly following
