Indie studio Cardboard Computer drew up a simple outline for their magical realist adventure game Kentucky Route Zero, but over the nearly 8-year development process they found themselves lost in a twisty maze of passages, all different. In this Kentucky Route Zero postmortem, Cardboard Computer co-founders Jake Elliott and Tamas Kemenczy will lead a guided tour back through these electronic tunnels and nocturnal highways, paying special attention to the little detours and dead-end tunnels.
Jake Elliott is co-founder of Cardboard Computer, where he is a writer, programmer, and designer on the game Kentucky Route Zero. His work is characterized by playful text, reflective pacing, and human-scale drama. He has taught videogame design, programming, and experimental animation at The School of the Art Institute of Chicago, DePaul University and Northwestern University. He lives in central Kentucky.
