Description

The Grim Reaper, the dark collector of lost souls. Unfortunately, your horse has fallen ill so you need to drive a bus instead. Navigate traffic, shoddy roads, and try not to run out of gas while gathering up angels and demons. Deliver these wayward souls to heaven or heck across 50 levels in this simple retro puzzle game.

History

Death Drives A Bus was my "quarantine game". I started it when things started locking down due to COVID-19 back in February 2020. Making this game was a great way to keep my mind off the fact that going outside was dangerous (although, living in Minnesota, we are pretty used to staying inside through the Winter time). This game came from a back in December 2019 and evolved from there!
