Desert Bus Returns!

Posted by Michael on November 28th, 2017

A time lapse from this year’s Desert Bus For Hope charity event.

Desert Bus, Penn & Teller’s infamous mind numbingly boring real time mini-game, is now out for virtual reality. The game was originally part of the Sega game Penn and Teller’s Smoke and Mirrors and recreates a run of the mill bus drive from Tucson, AZ to Las Vegas. If you are interested, there is a full play through on YouTube… it is over eight hours long! The game is a bit of a cult classic at this point, though, and there are even charity events dedicated to playing the game as a kind of endurance event! Polygon has everything you need to know about the new VR version.

Does anyone else wish American mayors dressed like this?
