Will this game ever be finished?
I've had my eye on this game literally since like the first week i built my pc back in 2014... it looks amazing but I'm not about to buy an incomplete game. Game has been released since 2013...what is going on with these devs?

Yea really. This sale just triggered my deal alert from Cheap Shark. This game has never been cheaper than $9.99 since it was first released. I was hoping that the occasion for the 70% off was the release of the final act. But, I see that's not the case. Sadness.

My advice just list it and wait and watch . I bought at release years ago and they never update the forums or show any interest in their customer base being informed .

Simple answer is no one knows when it will be released . The special thye have right now is setting off alarm bells for me because this is exactly what DoubleFine did with their EA title 2 days before dumping it as complete .

Kentucky Route Zero : TV Edition is coming out on Nintendo Switch. Nintendo's website says release date is "2018".

I thought I read awhile back that the devs were planning on releasing Act V when the game was complete and coming out on the Switch. (I'm not possitive, I'd have to do some digging to find it).

If you go to Kentucky Route Zero's website, at the top of the main page it has a link if you click on, "SEE ALSO : UN PUEBLO DE NADA", which takes you to this page, http://kentuckyroutezero.com/un-pueblo-de-nada/
This video is somehow related to the game. I thought it was neat, but also kind of bizarre and mysterious like the game. I think it's about a half hour long or so. (It's been awhile since I watched it).

Having said all that, I do believe we may see Act V sometime this year hopefully, but maybe next.

No. Don't buy. Promises are only as good as the people making them.

You have no idea . Like I stated before avoid this title until you actually see a full release .

im done picking seasonal games up like this unless they have a clear road map if they were active they woulda done had all the episodes out by now dont care what crappy excuse they cook up on why it taking so long.

Think they’ll tie up this final loose end soon... soon. As for how long, that’s anyone’s guess. As far as I’m concerned, they can very easily violate their 2018 deadline.

I have faith. Art takes time, there was a huge gap between chapters 3 and 4. While this may not give hope towards a speedy release, it at least shows they're still working on it.

For what it's worth, I've thoroughly enjoyed the 4 chapters that are currently available. If you want a feel for the game's style before you buy, I recommend some of the free one-offs that tie in with the KR0 universe:

Limits and Demonstrations (a visit to an art gallery)
http://kentuckyroutezero.com/limits-and-demonstrations/

Here and There Along the Echo (a guided audio tour)
http://kentuckyroutezero.com/here-and-there-along-the-echo/

Un Pueblo de Nada (a video broadcast that's also playable as an interactive story)
http://kentuckyroutezero.com/un-pueblo-de-nada/

Neighbor (part of a collection of free games made by several devs)
https://store.steampowered.com/app/538880/

For those that own the game, these may help bide the time until ch. 5. Either that or they'll make you mad that the devs are working on things other than KR0.

Art or not, it is indeed absurd that there is such a silence with rare updates swimming up and even then, not showing or explaining much. Also, why does it matter wether they are working on different projects or not? And if they are, why not to state so on public?

I agree that CC's weird lack of communication and planning isn't doing them any favors, although that last sentence in my post was more of a joke than anything. I understand why people would be frustrated with the delay, I just strongly disagree with everyone who's writing this off as something that will never be completed and not worth the purchase.

This game is on my radar for years now, still refusing to buy until it is completely released with every episode, I don't care if the content is enough in the game now, just want the full thing and still the last episode isn't release as far as I can see.

Exactly. The issue for me and I think for others too is that when you play these episodic style games and the gap between episode release dates is so large, by the time the new episode releases you will have forgotten what happened in the game before.. OR you will just flatout stop caring and be like, well, why bother anymore?

It's hard enough waiting 4-8 weeks for life is strange episodes. Making your fanbase wait years though, that is in no way acceptable in my eyes.
