Sometimes a new indie game comes out, and it’s go a little something extra to say. When this happens, and you want to talk a bit more in depth about independent games, we now have Indie Game of the Month Club.
Think of this like a Book Club. Once a month, we’ll select a new game to talk about and we’ll spend some time discussing the game in greater depth. We’ll take a closer, developer’s eye to really discuss the game beyond just the surface level of “it was cool.”
This month we’re discussing the slow burn narrative game Kentucky Route Zero, specifically Act 1 from developer Cardboard Computer.
A brief description from the storefront:
Kentucky Route Zero is a magical realist adventure game about a secret highway in the caves beneath Kentucky, and the mysterious folks who travel it. Gameplay is inspired by point-and-click adventure games (like the classic Monkey Island or King’s Quest series, or more recently Telltale’s Walking Dead series), but focused on characterization, atmosphere and storytelling rather than clever puzzles or challenges of skill.
All events are free and open to the public. Be sure to play the game in depth, as this will be a spoiler heavy discussion.
This month’s meeting will be March 2 at 6PM at Southland Perk.
