The Tragedy and Mystery of the Best Game of the Decade’

Laura Hudson for Wired

Kentucky Route Zero has won Game of the Year” awards multiple times, was dubbed the best musical of 2014,” and has been called the most important game of the decade”—and all this before it was finished.

Kentucky Route Zero is the first game I played/beat in 2023, having recently been published on iOS by Netflix (did you know Netflix was doing this with games?). I think I’ve had more fun reading the think-pieces than I did playing the game, but that’s modern art for you.

I think I could have either had it be more of a novel. The text length and rudimentary choices made me want to read it more than play it, and I’d rather read a book on my kobo. Where’s my KRZ ePub edition?
