Penn and Teller’s Smoke and Mirrors

Andy Baio on Penn and Teller’s unreleased “Smoke and Mirrors” video game from a decade ago:

The most infamous part was “Desert Bus,” a “VeriSimulator” in which you drive a bus across the straight Nevada desert for eight hours in real-time. Then you drive it home. Also, I’d read the bus veers to the right, so you can’t just leave the joypad propped up. The rumor was that if you won the game, you got one point.
