This Fantastic Trailer Portrays Its Game as 20-Year-Old Vaporware
Fake magazine covers, Shigeru Miyamoto quotes, and an assortment of buses make for quite the combination.
Omnibus, a game in which you drive a bus that can't stop and somehow avoids resembling Speed in the slightest, has gotten a new trailer, and it's something special.

Devolver Digital, known for creating and supporting some wacky games in the past, today released the trailer above for Omnibus. It's positioned as the latest entry in a series about vaporware, and makes it seem as if development on Omnibus started more than two decades ago. It goes on to feature fake magazine covers, tweets, and a profane quote from Shigeru Miyamoto; suffice it to say, you really need to just watch it for yourself.
In reality, Omnibus is a game that attracted more than $8,000 on Kickstarter (where $5,000 was the goal) and is now close to release. It has you take control of a speeding bus that can't be stopped or slowed down. There's a mission mode where you'll try to complete various objectives, and another mode where you just try to pull off tricks and earn high scores. There's also a multiplayer mode for up to four players where they'll compete for the highest score while pulling off tricks and flips, as well as a deathmatch mode.
The game launches this spring for PC, where--as you might assume from the not-exactly-cutting-edge graphics--the system requirements are quite light. It requires only a 2.4 GHz processor and 2 GB of RAM, and it'll even run on Windows Vista--Vista!--should you be unfortunate enough to still be running that.
