The folks at LoadingReadyRun are headed into Hour 131 of the Desert Bus for Hope 2018 over at twitch.tv/desertbus. Over the past nine years, the gang has (as of about 45 minutes ago) raised 5 million dollars for Child’s Play, a charity that donates toys, games and funds to children’s hospitals all over the world. The more money raised the longer the team has to keep playing Desert Bus, a minigame from Penn & Teller’s mercifully unreleased Sega CD Smoke and Mirrors. And while the cult classic game is widely considered to be the worst game ever made, I think maybe we can do better… or worse. So if you were hired to make the next best worst game ever, what would you make?
