desert-bus-smallIn response to the moral panic surrounding violent video games, Penn & Teller released “Desert Bus,” for the Sega Cd. In the game you drive a bus from Tuscon to Las Vegas in a straight line for 8 hours.
The bus veers to the right slightly, and thus requires the player’s constant attention. If the bus veers off the road it will stall and be towed back to Tucson, also in real time. If the player makes it to Las Vegas, he scores one point. The player then has the option to make the return trip to Tucson for another point (a decision he must make in a few seconds or the game ends).
