Legendary wonky bus driving sim Desert Bus is now available in VR


Legendary novelty game Desert Bus – in which you’re tasked with driving a slightly defective bus for eight straight hours across the mind-numbingly monotonous expanse between Arizona and Nevada – has come to Oculus Rift and Vive as Desert Bus VR.

Desert Bus has a long and fascinating history, having originally been created in the mid-90s by magicians Penn and Teller as part of an unreleased compilation of mini-games, known as Penn & Teller’s Smoke and Mirrors.

Smoke and Mirrors was a collection of games largely designed to trick your friends, and was intended for release on the Sega Mega-CD. By the time it was ready for public consumption, however, the Mega-CD was a virtually dead format. As such, nobody was interested in picking it up when original publisher Absolute Entertainment went out of business.
