Desert Bus VR
is now available as promised
offering a VR update to the 1998 Penn and Teller mini-game that adds the
immersion of virtual reality for anyone who thinks that a real-time
simulation of an eight-hour drive through the desert needs more
immersiveness. The Windows game is free-to-play, supports Rift and Vive, but
does not require a headset to play. Here's word:
