E15 Kentucky Route Zero

E15 Kentucky Route Zero

A road trip through the Deep South finds Ben and Tao soaring among the clouds and scouring the deepest mines on route to deliver a prize antique in surrealist point-and-click-and-choose-your-own-adventure-kinda, Kentucky Route Zero. From poetry and music to humanity’s impending obsolescence and the nature of, as Tao likes to say, voracious capitalism, no stone is left unturned as the duo try to decipher the impossible. Fasten your seat belts.

Spoilers throughout (but it’s not that kind of game).

Content Warning: PEGI 12. Surprisingly clean fun for once. Just careful of the bears...
