Desert Bus VR Out Now for Free on Steam, check out the official news from Gearbox Software

Desert Bus VR

 

Last Friday, the annual Desert Bus for Hope charity stream wrapped up their streamathon with a total of 158 hours of bussing and raised $650,250 in the process. In addition to great giveaways and continuous uninterrupted streaming of Desert Bus, they also raffled off the opportunity for one donor to pick the release date of Desert Bus VR.

Gearbox Software, Gearbox Publishing, Penn & Teller, and Dinosaur have been working on the virtual reality version of the original Desert Bus Sega CD game for the past year, and instead of just revealing the game during the event, they decided to have one of the donors to control the release date for Desert Bus VR.

In addition to the stream team taking on the VR challenge, those who donated during that time were entered into a drawing to win the power to choose the release date for Desert Bus VR on Steam. Along with a guest video-appearance from Randy Pitchford and Penn Jillette, Desert Bus for Hope also held a second fundraiser later in the streamathon that allowed the community to submit and vote for custom-designed stickers that will be patched in and permanently affixed to the inside of the bus in Desert Bus VR.

The winner “DoctorBobtastic” chose the release date to be today on his birthday, in addition to dedicating an additional prize of having your name in the game to the late LoadingReadyRun crew member Bill “BWOS” Watt. Desert Bus VR is available now on Steam for free. For those who don’t own a VR headset, the game can still be played without one.

ABOUT 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!
