About Cardboard Computer

Hi y'all! We're Cardboard Computer, a small game studio composed of just three people: Ben Babbitt, Jake Elliott, and Tamas Kemenczy. We're currently working on the game Kentucky Route Zero, a magical realist adventure game about a secret highway in the caves beneath Kentucky.

Kentucky Route Zero is nearly done(!), and we've been thinking+feeling a lot about how we want this collaboration to look in the future. We make games that are non-violent, human-centered, experimental -- and one of the most important qualities of our work is a sense of mystery. So our goal on this here Patreon is to find a more open and community-engaged development process, while keeping the mysteries alive. Like everything, it's an experiment.

We hope you'll join us here while we wrap up Kentucky Route Zero and figure out what's next!

Here's what to expect if you do join us:

- Spoiler-free development and process-related video streams.
- Articles about our process and influences.
- Sharing tools we've built: Blender extensions, reusable source code, etc.
- Rough drafts and works-in-progress.
- One-off short stories, formal experiments, and nano-vignettes.

Check out our Patreon "goals" for other ideas!
