IMPORTANT:

Because of all the love the game received, I've made a major update! So, if you've played this game already, give it a try again because theres a lot more to experience!!

Ever got that eerie feeling when you're in a bus, late at night? Ever thought about how much stronger that feeling must be when YOU'RE the driver? What may driving with the bus empty late at night feel like? This thought is what set me up to make this game.

In a PS1 style setting, you are a bus driver completing your night shift. You are getting tired, getting the last people off the bus to their destinations, until you're all alone. What might happen?

Controls: Now in-game

I'm a beginner developer from Portugal, this is the first time I've ever finished a project and I'm really proud of myself. The game is really short, but I hope you like the experience nonetheless. If you encounter any bugs or problems please tell me. If you feel like donating any ammount, that would mean the world to me and hype me up to develop more games!

If you're a content creator you can record my game - I would love you to, actually! As this is my first published project, any feedback is really useful and it would be so cool watching someone play it :)

Check the devlogs below if you're interested in the game's history like how this major update came to be!

Thanks for checking my game out!

Hi I got around to uploading my video on your updated version and it's great man. Thanks so much for your work. If you wanna see my playthrough with both endings check it out here -

Thanks so much for playing the updated version too :) your commentary was really funny! You got all the ghosts first try too, nice! You can perceive the ghosts as the spirit of the girl on ending 2, they're making sure that doesn't happen but if you catch them, they fade away and... well you know... Thanks again <3

(+1)

I really enjoyed your game. The first ghost gave me a fright. I can't wait to see what other games you make

You got the inspiration for the monster right :) Thanks so much for playing!

Hey I played your game a while ago when I saw it before this updated version and included it in a video. I just played the new version and it was quite the improvement. I really liked the concept even before the update so props to you. If you wanna see the original version before the update check it here it's the first game in the video-

I hate horror games in general. But i like bus driving stuff and stories. When i read that you are a new developer, I said "Let's give it a chance". I played it and I like it. Good job! I hope you will get better and better :)

Thanks so much for giving the game a try :D I'm glad you liked it, I love buses too aha

short and nice game

short and simple !! I love it.

super cool little game, i like the controls as well. wish it was longer with maybe more creepy people coming on the bus. 

Love your headphones aha! Maybe someday I make a bigger game with the same concept :) thanks

Lmao I love you guys' energy, my pet gerbil is called Jerma! Thanks for playing :)

I can't play the game there's only this image on my screen, I pressed all the keys on my keyboard but it didn't matter :  What should I do ?

It has happened to one other person too, don't really know what causes it. The game won't have anymore updates (only if I decide to create a whole new long game) so I'm sorry for the problem.

(+1)

Second Game in this 3 scary games video and it was a nice little scare. Good job on this. Hope to see more games like this!

(+1)

thank you love it 

(+2)

I do like the visual aesthetics and it was quite unnerving driving the buss. I do also appreciate the Technoblade reference. Good game.

(+2)

Your video is SO GOOD, it's my favorite no-commentary gameplay! You played it really well and got straight to the point with the secret ending. Thanks so much for it :)

(+1)

Your compliments mean a lot, thank you.

(+2)

Damn, that's good!

(+1)

That was really good. I was definitely on edge the whole time and I wanted it to be longer!

(+1)

Great game. I had no idea what was gonna happen next.

(+1)

First off, the text before the menu screen was difficult to read. If you plan on doing future updates, I would recommend changing that. 

The controls 'Q' and 'E' were a bit weird. Additionally, you had to hold 'D' in order to communicate with the characters. That was a bit annoying. I would have preferred using the mouse. I liked how you only had to hit 'W' once for the bus to accelerate (until braking). Good feature to tell the player when to stop as well. In the first version, it was a bit hard to know when you were supposed to do this. 

I did find a pretty significant bug. The second character knocks on the window. The door opens and he enters the bus. After the first set of dialogue, he teleports out of the bus and comes back in. 

Some of the dialogue itself was too long as well. I would recommend shorting some of it so the player remains attentive. There were multiple endings, but it seemed like nothing changed. In both endings, you hit the girl and the game is over. 

Overall, pretty solid for your first game. Nice j

ob! 

Thanks for the feedback. The second passenger bug seems to happen if W is hit multiple times when trying to run off. I saw your video and the endings were different. On the first ending you hit a white thing from the side. On the second ending you hit the girl.

The comments below are all from the old release.

Newly updated feedback will be above this comment.

Thanks to everyone again for supporting the game <3

This definitely kept me on edge the whole bus ride, I kept expecting a lot of horrible, scary things to happen. I love these games built around otherwise mundane, normal environments that are just slightly off in subtle ways.
I'd liked to have seen a little bit more actually occur on the trip, though. It's not bad to have a minute or two of down time to build tension, but it got to a point that I missed the one scare that was in the game because I was trying to make something happen. For a first time game, this was really solid and lasted just as long as it needs to; I'd like to see you try to balance out the tension and the spooks a little more in the future.
Keep up the great work and I can't wait to see what you make next!

I loved the concept here, although it was really short but it was neat, good work :)

(+1)

I really like the perspective of being the bus driver. Creepy game. Great work! 

(+1)

Game doesn't seem to load for me I get stuck on the opening white screen.

There are many things that can break the game like that. Are you using Windows and processor? Did you unzip the 2 files together to a new one? If it still doesn't work send me an e-mail :(

Short and sweet with an unexpected ending. Well done and keep up the good work.

Super short but loved the scare.

(+1)

Awesome little game. Loved the premise, I was waiting for the jump scare and it still got me. Really dig the aesthetic, well done.

(+1)

Super short but not bad. Made a video on it.

(+1)

Very short, but interesting! I was confused because I kept stopping and the guy never got out lol but the ending definitely got me. I'd be interested to see more from this as you expand! Thanks for sharing! 

Thanks for taking an interest to the game :) I promise I won't let down with the expanding and ironing out of this concept

The horror part of it was done almost perfectly, although a bit short. I got drawn into it almost right away, which usually doesn't happen. The person talking to you right at the start was what got me into it so quickly. The mirror is an AMAZING gameplay mechanic, and i think you should screw around with the mirror mechanics and do some really messed up stuff with it.

You have the beginnings of a really, really, good game here if you do decide to expand on it. Adding more passengers and conversations would make the game really work, and maybe even start on your last break instead of directly on the bus. Adding world atmosphere can ONLY add to the experience. 10/10 for what was played.

Thanks for the feedback! Yes, the game is really short and deserves more. After I fix some crucial things to make the experience more enjoyable for everyone, I'm thinking about starting a new version of the game, with the same style and premise, expanding the story with more worldbuilding and passengers (and obviously more scary stuff) :)

(+1)

No-commentary playthrough:

Congrats on completing your first project! I liked the look and feel, I just wish there was more! It'd be cool to see this concept expanded upon and fleshed out into a 20-30 minute experience with more passengers and creepy events. Keep up the good work!
(+1)

Going to give this a try on stream today!

I just watched your gameplay! Thanks for streaming my game :) Sorry for it being confusing, you should've been looking at the top mirror to see the passenger getting off and paranormal things happening. It's my fault for it being so non-intuitive... I'll fix all of the problems with an update if you're interested in givint it a second try!

(+1)

Just seeing this.  I'd LOVE to give it another try!  I tend to get games wrong when I play them naturally so no worries :) 

(+1)

For your first game that you completed, the game's ok. controls handled fine and it looked great. I would work a bit more on the ambient sounds as that helps alot in the setup of the atmosphere and horror. Keep at it though.

Here's my channel for other games I have played. https://www.youtube.com/c/Levont

I will be playing this live 7/4 around 4:00 PM EST =).

I actually couldn't hold my smile when you started clapping lmao thanks so much for playing :) Sorry for it being so short and confusing, I'll fix the game intuitiveness with an update and add a new ending if you're interested. This is pretty much a teaser at this point because I will do a bigger project with more passengers and spooky stuff! Thanks again <3

Hi there, I am DragonExplosion and I am a Youtuber. If you like my videos, please leave a like and subscribe at my channel.

This was an interesting horror game about driving a bus late at night. The game was quite short and I was definitely paranoid while driving the bus so I drove really slowly and also kept on stopping XD. However, things began to speed up and suddenly it was too late at the end. Would be cool if there were more supernatural events occurring while driving the bus and having to pick up more passengers onto the bus as time passed as well. This would further elevate the creepy and dark mood and atmosphere the game creates and make the entire experience much more horrifying and enjoyable for the player.

Thank you for reading my comment and I wish you good luck in your future endeavours.
