If you've Kickstarted Kentucky Route Zero all the way back in the ancient times of 2011, you can now breathe a sigh of relief. It may have taken quite a while, but the fifth episode has now been released in full. In other words, Kentucky Route Zero is finally complete!

For those of you that haven't played, or even heard about Kentucky Route Zero, it's probably best explained as a highly atmospheric and often experimental adventure game. It's one of those games where you want to shut yourself off from the outside world, cuddle up with a warm coffee, and just play through it an episode at a time. Kentucky Route Zero really is quite an experience, especially if you're a fan of story-heavy games.

I'm sure a lot of this sounds like absolute nonsense to you, so allow me to also share with you the recently posted launch trailer. It won't exactly tell you what the story is about, but it'll do a pretty good job of showcasing just how strange and interesting Kentucky Route Zero truly is. Have a look:

You can learn more about Kentucky Route Zero, as well as potentially grab yourself a copy, over at Steam. Have fun, and if you do decide to play it, try not to get stuck playing the various mini-games that were released alongside it!
