The Desert Bus for Hope is on the Road Again!


Attention! Ladies, Gentlemen, and Children of All-Ages! It is that time once again as the Desert Bus for Hope Prepares to raise money for Child’s Play, a registered charity dedicated to improving the lives of children undergoing treatment in the hospital with toys and games. The charity supports a network of over 180 hospitals worldwide. It also supports domestic violence support facilities and aims to provide opportunities for positive engagment, distraction, and play for children in domestic violence shelters and advocacy centres.

What is Desert Bus?

Desert Bus is a mini-game from the never-released Sega CD game Penn & Teller’s Smoke and Mirrors. Challenging the player to drive a listing, unreliable, virtual bus on an endless, eight-hour-long strip of highway between Tucson, Arizona, and Las Vegas, Nevada, it is widely regarded to be the worst video game ever made.
