A Game of Mines, Maps, and Madness

by G. Christopher Williams

23 September 2013

The first episode of Kentucky Route Zero's mines, maps, and madness all beg to be explored, which is exactly what we attempt to do in this week's podcast.
 

A strange little indie release early this year took us all by surprise. Mesmerizing in its absurd presentation and deeply indebted to text adventures of days past, Kentucky Route Zero presents a world in decay, begging to be excavated.

Of course, the first episode of the game’s mines, maps, and madness all beg to be explored in some depth, which is exactly what we intend to attempt in this week’s podcast.
