My entry for the Desert Bus for Hope 2019 charity game jam https://itch.io/jam/dbgj2019

Drive your bus through the desert but beware of your zany and demanding passengers! Indulge them to learn time saving but dangerous driving techniques to arrive earlier!

If you make it to the end of the story, feel free to mention in the comments your final decision. Will add more content and polish if there's player interest.

Thanks!

Hi! I featured your game in a new indie game show on my youtube channel! I honestly had a lot more fun then I expected!

Glad you enjoyed it! Thanks for the feedback and video! Good luck with your YouTube channel!

I feel like this was inspired by that game made by Penn & Teller that never sold

You are correct! It was made for a Desert Bus inspired Game Jam for charity as seen here:
