Kentucky Route Zero: The title Kentucky Route Zero refers to more than a video game. It is more a context for video games, video games that are between other video games, artworks that sometimes are and sometimes are not video games, the negative space that fills gaps between these relationships, and the liminal space at the cusp of video games and everyday life. That context can also be described as a series of stories, a shared context for mystery (rather than puzzles), loss, community, pathos, media art histories, haunted technology, and skeletons. With so many paths within the world of Kentucky Route Zero and so many points of entry it might be hard to know where to start. Simply staring at this iconic cover image for Kentucky Route Zero Act IV is as excellent a point of entry (or a point of reflection for those already traveling the Zero) as any.
Cardboard Computer is the collective name of Jake Elliot, Tamas Kemenczy, and Ben Babbit. They are known for their sprawling multi-part video game project Kentucky Route Zero which began in 2013. Other credits include Neighbor, an official selection for 2016 Milan Triennial International Exhibition, and a House in California which was nominated for the 2011 Independent Games Festival Nuovo Award.
