I’ve professed my love for American Truck Simulator at. Can I love a simulator built around another piece of industrial-grade automotive engineering? Who knows! We do know, however, that Bus Simulator will be making an honest shot of it very soon.
As a driving sim, Bus Simulator will require you to protect your reputation by not staying out late with strange men I mean driving carefully and obeying traffic rules while making your stops on time. It’s got a route editor which, after having recently put in some time, looks awesomely easy to use. It’s even got multiplayer, which is a feature that American Truck Simulator has not yet added. Add to that a more fully-featured management aspect, and Bus Simulator is starting to look like a more attractive package.
But no! My love is for the long-haul trucking. The open road. The sights and sounds of America. The freedom of the highway. Not just driving circles around the big city, taking overly-caffeinated commuters from home to workplace and back again. But hey! Maybe busing is your thing. Go for it.
I am so, so glad that the italicized font Simulator branding hasn’t yet been utterly destroyed by the wacky nonsense of Steam’s bottom of the barrel. Not every straight-faced simulation of working-class employment is for me, but there’s at least one that is. So more power to you, Simulators. May you be everything that Tycoons were, and more.
Bus Simulator 16 will be out March 2 for €24.99. I’d tell you that price in USD, but that information does not yet exist. Meanwhile, I’ll be gettingstuck in my head for months to come. You can check out .
