Developer Cardboard Computer (A House in California, Hummingbird Mind) has just released the first trailer for Kentucky Route Zero, described as a “magic realist adventure game set along the secret highways of the american south.”
Confused? The trailer will give you a pretty good sense of the game’s mood and ambiance. “It’s sort of like Tennessee Williams meets Metroid meets Gabriel Garcia Marquez … and a bit of Another World for good measure,” asserts Cardboard Computer. Calling the project “intriguing” would be an understatement.
It’s no secret that I’m a big fan of Cardboard Computer’s work. For Kentucky Route Zero, founder Jake Elliot has teamed up with Tamas Kemenczy, who is supplying the game’s art-direction. Those interested in helping bring the project to fruition can donate to the game’s development on Kickstarter. Donating certain amounts will net you things like collectible postcards, or a game poster. Anyone donating $500 or more will get to have their own “personal antique” included in the game.
Elliott informs me that they’re planning on a Fall 2011 release for Kentucky Route Zero on PC, Mac, and “possibly other platforms.” Definitely one to keep your eye on.
