Penn and Teller's Video Game

I'm a pretty big fan of Penn and Teller, and find their illusions to be awesome. Even the illusions they tell you how they do it are still awesome to watch. I came across an article on Cracked.com about 6 games never released and found out that Penn and Teller were going to have game.

It was never released because the company that made it went out of business before it could happen. The whole point of this game was to trick, scam, and troll your friends. It's compiled with mini games. I've never heard of this game, and when I found out about one of the mini games, I couldn't stop laughing.

The game is called Desert Bus. This is where you drive a bus for 8 hours, you can't go over 45, there are no turns, and you can't pause the game. The most exciting part of this game is around the 5 hour point where a bug hits your windshield.

So why would they even bother to put this game out there, besides the obvious answer of 'because they're Penn and Teller'? It was a response to Janet Reno who at the time was complaining about video game violence. This is how Desert Bus was born. Pretty epic huh?

Any plans for an HD remake... or make Penn and Teller?
