A downloadable game for Windows, macOS, and Linux
At twilight in Kentucky, as bird songs give way to the choir of frogs and insects, familiar roads become strange, and it's easy to get lost. Those who are already lost may find their way to a secret highway winding through underground caves. The people who live and work along this highway are themselves a little strange at first, but soon seem familiar: the aging driver making the last delivery for a doomed antique shop; the young woman who fixes obsolete TVs surrounded by ghosts; the child and his giant eagle companion; the robot musicians; the invisible power company lurking everywhere, and the threadbare communities who struggle against its grip.

Originally published episodically over a span of years, the game now includes all five acts along with the 'interludes,' which were originally published separately. It has also been painstakingly localized for French, German, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Russian, and Spanish (both European Spanish and Latin American).

You simply tap or click the background to move around and interact as you follow the story of a truck driver named Conway and the strange people he meets as he tries to cross the fictitious Route Zero in Kentucky to make a final delivery for the antique company for which he works.
There's a lot of text to read and at times it feels like an interactive novel (in a good way). It doesn't have the usual puzzles or challenges of other games and instead focuses on storytelling and atmosphere. You control conversations and can choose the destination of your truck. This doesn't alter the narrative but does affect the texture of interactions and relationships.
It was originally published episodically over a span of years, the TV Edition collects all five acts along with the interludes, which were originally published separately.
