Remember Desert Bus for the Sega CD, where you had to drive a bus in straight line for 8 hours from Tucson, AZ, to Las Vegas? Well, there is now a sequel and it's called Desert Bus II: I Am a Tree!


Here's a video of the game in action here: https://youtube.com/watch?v=OMsozoE35u8

In this sequel, your bus crashed into a tree and you must wait for the towing company to arrive. However you are tired, it's 110°F and the towing truck won't arrive until at least 8 hours. So you must try to stay awake to drink water until it arrives, while staring at the accident scene, else you will die of dehydration.

Here is now a download attached below! I am using Sprites BASIC library by grosged, by the way.

10/10 even more entertaining than Opposum Massage Simulator.

On a side note, I forgot to mention that this game uses Sprites BASIC library by @grosged . The entire bus scene is drawn with rectangles but I might replace the tree and bus with actual sprites if I can find time to make some.

Feel free to do it. With original Desert Bus and even Crazybus sprites it would be even better. For which platform?

Soon to come, soon to come. I just need to add the all-important flame grafix! It's not gonna be a Picasso masterpiece, but it should be a good fire.

I should check if I can add that overhydrating thing to my game. I might make it so you become blind due to staring at the sun for too long if you move your head too high. :P

Also after 5-6 hours I might make it so a :walrii: crosses the screen.

I like the fire animations :D. Also I wonder if you plan to upload this somewhere like a post or something? Because when I put this in the downloads section I'll probably put both download links in the first post.


Also my version is nearly done:



And just to tell you why I won't add your graphics to my version, both Walrii frames increased the program size by 1246 bytes including the palette :P

Actually, your game has a lot of charm as it is. I like the rectangle look :) . I just tried to push the limits of how detailed I could make my graphics with 4 colors :P .

And I'll upload this in a post when I feel like there's enough implemented for it to be playable (i.e. winning after 8 hours, and a debug mode so I can get through quickly (not telling you what will trigger it ;) ) ). I do plan to have a point system, though, as well as that walrii thingy. Not exactly sure whether or not I should make it some 8x8 sprite, a 16x16 version, or the full 24x24, because the game runs at ~14FPS as it stands :P

Actually, the rectangular graphics were because I was too lazy to find actual sprites to make the game look similar to the original. But it helps keeping the file size down.


Also I have done the readme now. I'll make new screenshots soon to put the game in the first post. I am not sure if it will go on ticalc.org and others, though, since I try to keep my files there above a certain quality. :P

How's your grayscale on-calc, by the way?
