    Question is, they say it's pay what you want. What if you want to pay $0?

    [edit]
    Never mind. Tested for myself and it's a $1 minimum. So that's not really paying what you want. Still good for the games you get for $1 though.

    It used to be pay what you want, but then people abused the hell out of the system, so they set a minimum amount of $1 for the Steam keys.

    Well, if you don't pay anything, you don't get anything. I think that's a fair trade.

    You can still just pay one cent and get only the games delivered on Humble Bundle, though.

    Oh, and you literally can't pay $0. How would they even know you paid them $0?

    With a receipt, of course. But you'd have to bill them for the material costs of creating one, so they'll have to pay you back.

    I was more just being technical. It says "pay what you want" but then you can't, so it's false.

    That's not being technical, that's committing a semantic error. You can't 'pay' $0 because the entire idea of payment hinges on an exchange of non-zero value.

    Sounds interesting. I might just have to add some more games that I'll never play in my Steam library.

    Is Kentucky Route Zero or any of the other games any good?

    KRZ has wonderful visuals and folk music. Still, I played up until the end of Act 3(I think), but no further. One of these days I need to sit my ass down and finish it. It's so unique it's definitely worth giving a go.

    Y'know what, the best writing about KRZ I've read was by dethtoll, even though it was less about the game and more about the very personal memories it stirred in him.

    This is from 2013.

You could stand on the hillside by the old church and look down into the orange and green dots that made up Cincinnati proper -- but where we were was almost pitch black. It's all built up now. Half the woods are gone, new houses in their place. But you can still find that kind of atmosphere, you just have to drive a little farther. There are parts of Kentucky and Ohio that look exactly as presented in Kentucky Route Zero (minus the giant eagles of course.) And that's what makes it so amazing -- sure, it's a very stylized art style, but it's captured perfectly the atmosphere and overall weirdness of this part of America, something that gets lost when you get too close to the ashtrays we call cities.

    I can't really talk about Kentucky Route Zero in terms of gameplay. I can only talk about growing up in the 80s and 90s when everything wasn't so built up. About how when I was really little I lived up in Michigan and we used to drive down here to visit my grandparents and it was a completely different world, where the street had no lights and people turned off their porchlights before going to bed at 9pm, and darkness seemed to swallow up everything, even sound. About how summers in rural southern Ohio and Kentucky were otherworldly. About going down to Coney Island Amusement Park in Cincinnati's California neighborhood, down by the river, passing all the houses where nobody lived on the first floor, and wandering around Moonlite Gardens before taking a ride on the Ferris Wheel. About staying up 'til two in the morning playing strange, obscure text adventure games in the late 1990s with bizarre imagery and British humor. About getting lost in the woods one night at the end of summer and having to use the moonlight to find my way back into the backyard. About trips to the lake while fumigating the house, and stormclouds gathering as we drove home. About looking out on the backyard through the window in the upstairs hall closet. About being seven and bewildered. About being twelve and lonely. About being fifteen and lost.

    This game is beautiful.

    KRZ's like playing a Zen koan. If you like magical realism and lyrical experiences, it's worth a punt.

    I went for the "better than average", so I'll let you know in the near future.
