So, bluntly open and spoiler-y territory: the end is when you go with Shannon to the farm, she fixes the TV, you see Road Zero and a truck goes by and black screen . . and the game crashes? That's the ending, right? Or does the game breaks at that point?
Also, how does the "Scenes" work? I thought it was as "Scenes" usually work, they are predetermined and story related, by I'm not so sure in Kentucy Route Zero. Maybe it's whenever you go to a location? See, when I got to the "end" that was Scene V for me. After the crash, I reloaded and it loaded Scene V and that was when I arrived with Shannon at the farm. But, this time, I went to the truck and decided to go and explore a bit. After a bit of travel (where I saw some dudes push a airplane and me and Shannon just stood there and watch and went to a Church were there were people singing, but actually, not really) I decided "oh you know what, let's go back to the gas station. Now with Shannon there's probably something to be said there".
So I went there and it was Scene VI. There was another dude there looking for a venue for his pseudoscientific experimental performance and I offered my help. I did more exploration (where I went to a building where a dozen people were around a fire and they offered me coffee and to a diner where I think I made out with the waitress) went back to gas station and Scene VII. Dude was gone, talked a bit with Joseph, left, went back to the farm and Scene VIII. And it played exactly as before and by the end, black screen and crash. What? I think I'll reload again and maybe go to the mines after and see if it triggers more Scenes and stuff.
What. Is. Video. Games?
