Kentucky Route Zero trailer oozes with atmosphere

A new trailer for Kentucky Route Zero, a game whose developers at Cardboard Computer describe as a "magic realist adventure game," shows off the new art style implemented by artist Tamas Kemenczy.

Kentucky Route Zero has been in development for about two years; Kemenczy and his development partner, Jake Elliott, put the title on Kickstarter in January 2011, where they were able to exceed their $6,500 funding goal. With an original electronic soundtrack by Ben Babbitt, and hymns and bluegrass standards covered by The Bedquilt Ramblers, Kentucky Route Zero seems well-equipped to deliver its quiet, slow-paced story about a secret highway in the Bluegrass State "and the mysterious folks who travel it."

Cardboard Computer plans to release Kentucky Route Zero in five acts on PC and Mac, with the first due out in December.
