Kentucky Route Zero

Anyone play this?

It sounds interesting - a game about the story more than anything else apparently.

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...

A focus on characterization, atmosphere and storytelling rather than clever puzzles or challenges of skill.

After thoroughly enjoying The Walking Dead Episodes 1-5, I was in the mood for some adventure gaming and found this (although Kentucky Route Zero is a VERY different style of adventure). I gave it about 30 minutes and got bored. It's more old-school than modern adventure games - main thing is all dialogue is text-only and the reading got a bit tedious.

I will probably give it a try again when I have more free time and I'm not in a rush to get my gaming done in a fixed amount of time. It has stellar reviews so maybe I just need to play it in a more relaxed state of mind.
