Sup Holmes doubles down on Kentucky Route Zero

Get to know the people that make great videogames

Today on Sup Holmes we welcome Jake Elliot of Cardboard Computer (Kentucky Route Zero, Wikipedia Vs. Predator) to the program. Jake’s been creating games and “artware” for years, but it was Kentucky Route Zero that really put him and partner Tamas Kemenczy on the map. Jake and Tamas’s most recent release is called The Entertainment. It may be the first videogame to see simultaneous release on Oculus Rift, standard computer display, and paper and ink. Based on a stage play from 1963, the game involves at least one character from Kentucky Route Zero, blurring the lines between reality and interactive fiction. 

We’ll be talking to Jake about how he got started in games, what it’s been like to find success, where the line between games starts and “artware” ends, Jimmy Corrigan The Smartest Kid on Earth, and a lot more. Join us at 1pm PST/4pm EST for the Sup(er) Ho(bow)lmes to end all Sup(er) Ho(bow)lmeses!

"Where do dreams end and reality begin? Videogames, I suppose."- Gainax, FLCL Vol. 1 "The beach, the trees, even the clouds in the sky... everything is build from little tiny pieces of stuff. Just like in a Gameboy game... a nice tight little world... and all its inhabitants... made out of little building blocks... Why can't these little pixels be the building blocks for love..? For loss... for understanding"- James Kochalka, Reinventing Everything part 1 "I wonder if James Kolchalka has played Mother 3 yet?" Jonathan Holmes
