Kentucky Route Zero
Act I available now, and IGF nominations
9 januari 2013 - Jake

Hi y'all -- been a big week for Kentucky Route Zero!

We released Act I on monday, which you can now purchase on our site at http://kentuckyroutezero.com

The game has also received four nominations in the Independent Game Festival: Visual Art, Narrative, Audio, and one for the grand prize. We're really honored, especially because the rest of the nominees and honorable mentions contain some of our favorite games in recent memory (like Cart Life, Dys4ia, Thirty Flights of Loving, Gone Home, Super Hexagon ... there are a lot).

So! One of the benefits of being a finalist in the IGF this year is: "All IGF Main Competition finalists for this year's event will receive the opportunity to accept a distribution agreement for Steam" (http://igf.com/2012/12/igf_valve_to_offer_steam_distr.html). We don't have any details about that yet; we haven't been in touch with anyone from IGF or Valve yet. But it means that KRZ is definitely coming to Steam at some point, so that's exciting!

We'll keep this Greenlight page running, because it's still a good way to keep in touch with you folks. Watch this space for announcements about how and when the game will be released on Steam.

thanks!

This is very, very good news. I just saw this game through a quick look on giantbomb. I really want to play this ASAP! Get to work guys!

I'm glad that your game is going to get on Steam. In all seriousness, we need more original games and I'm glad that you'll be here.

As for the person asking about Steam Achievements, I love them too, but I suspect this game may not have them. The developers could use them to get players to explore more, however, and give players a hint that they might have missed something. I.e., "Find the bait shop", etc.

What is the likely hood this will have steam achievements? I'm trying to see if I should wait for it to hit steam or buy it now from the developers.

I'll wait just a little while for it to hit Steam, as soon as it does I'll subscribe.
BTW: The title is making me a little homesick. ;-)

That first act was glorious. Absolutely one of the most wonderful adventure game experiences I've had in a very long while.

Just finished Act I last night before I went to bed, and it would have probably kept me up all night had it not ended when it did. Looking forward to Act II and to see this on Steam.

Completed the first act yesterday and I must say it was a pleasure to play. It's so lovely that your game world has much to explore. What a lovely story too... Not to give away any spoilers, but the ending of act one just left me both intrigued and with a massive smile on my face! I hope the green light starts shining on your gem of a game soon. Looking forward to act II :)
