Kentucky Route Zero is a really interesting game. It’s… interactive fiction-adjacent, i guess? More of a point-and-click adventure but with highly prescribed interactions. The writing is what I imagine Southern Gothic would be like (I’m not really familiar with that genre), along with The Grapes of Wrath and Depression-era literature, but set in the present day. The aesthetics, visual and audio, are superb. I looked at Google Maps, and apparently all the roads are geographically accurate which is very cool.
