Desert Bus for Hope Desert Bus VR was made in-part to support Desert Bus for Hope, a volunteer organization that holds the eponymous annual event to raise money for game industry charity Child’s Play. Participants play Desert Bus in a telethon-style stream, with others pledging donations in exchange for incentives that can include everything from prizes to increasing the length of the Desert Bus play time. Desert Bus VR released on November 27, 2017 – the date selected by Robert “DoctorBobtastic” Nix, the winning donor during the Desert Bus for Hope 2017 “Choose the Desert Bus VR Release Date” charity drive. November 27th is also Robert’s birthday, so if you see him on that day this year, or any other year for that matter, be sure to give him a nice, big cake. He also chose to make the driver’s default signature Bill “BWOS” Watt, a tribute to the late LoadingReadyRun crew member. This will be patched in with a future update that also includes the winning stickers Desert Bus Sticker Art donation drive. Thanks to the great artists who contributed!

Desert Bus VR reviews and comments

It's Deert Bus. In VR. You drive a Bus through the Desert. In VR. So It offers everything the Name promises. Good Implementation of the classic Desert Bus Parody on the Demand "Games must be realistic and must not involve Violence." At least a few Miles to drive and sometimes driving with someone certainly doesn't hurt with a Ticket Price of €0.00;)

An eight-hour Drive to Vegas. You Have to play it, no. Happens to something exciting, no. Otherwise some great Function, yes. Multiplayer as a Passenger and when you are towed, you drive all the Way back to Take-off-RÜCKWÄRTS. :D YEPPIE! Is just a Jokespspiel. A neutral Rating would be good, but I would tend to No. Otherwise, it's well done and free.

100/100, it is necessary to conduct a collapse-convergence. No wonder that the straights with this exciting game I have the most popular. It lures for many HOURS. Be careful! The Gameplay is realistic and uncomplicated at the same time, allowing you to intuitively enter the world of the game and enjoy its atmosphere from the beginning. And It is not necessary to have a VR-set to get into the marvelous adventure of the Desert Bus! I Bow to the genius of the story lines!

Chm... This was transferred from Sega Mega Drive. Only the graphics twisted and all. GAME ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ about as on the Sega about 8 hours without interruption on the bus. But added something, or rather online now you can join the passengers. And you can also join in the role of passengers. The Goal of the game to go from some X-city in Las Vegas for the VR for 30 minutes, and then for the * bet true. If you like the game and already 3-4 times went to the Lasa and back then you saddosaz. You can only Play when you want to relax after the evening and calm to be a passenger or an trucker

I will play through it at some point when I have a lot of Boredom or a broken Leg or both or nothing left to Read or at Night the Light no longer burns or all the Drops have slipped and I don't know how to help myself anymore. The Game really has potential in this modern Version! There are only a few more Interaction Options for the Driver and, of course, for the Guests. (Multiplayer at its finest) The Driver can drive besides driving straight yet the Door up and make, even while driving, the Guests can ... Look out the Window! The Track could tolerate a Curve every few 100 Miles or so, but I don't know if it's not still curves that are emerging, or if the Track is originally as candle-like through the Desert. In irregular Sections, oncoming traffic might spurring, or someone is trying to overtake our speeding 45m/h bus. And very important. Ingamevoice! Of course for the Guests, the Driver can only be addressed at the Beginning of the Journey, that goes without saying.
