According to publisher Devolver Digital, this spring we'll get to experience a bus driving game that has had a long and fictional development. It's developer Buddy Cops who are responsible for this slightly different take on driving buses in populated areas, or as Devolver Digital CFO Fork Parker states in the press release:
"OmniBus will revolutionize the way we all think about video games and buses as it totally changes the public transportation video game simulation paradigm."
The press release is mainly filled with ironic remarks, but here is some of the things we interpret to be true:
• Multiplayer Derby Mode: Jump into the chaotic free-for-all multiplayer versus mode where drivers are pitted against each other in a high score trick mode or the visceral deathmatch mode sure to raise tensions down at the bus depot.
• Free Play Trick Mode: Choose your favorite bus and pull off unbelievable jumps, flips and twists to hit incredible high scores and impress friends, family, and other OmniBus drivers on the leaderboards.
To see what we suspect to be gameplay, check out the game's first trailer below. Omnibus is coming to PC, Linux and Mac this spring.
