A downloadable game for Windows

Designed and Programmed by Mark Thompson and written by Abigail Adel & Mark Thompson, On A Lonesome Road is a experimental talking simulator.

As the player, you take on the role of a depot manager tasked with managing the driver of a bus route between Tucson, Arizona and Las Vegas. It's long, hard work that requires skill and focus, which you will have to help the driver manage by talking with them as they drive.

There are points but no winning, you can crash but you can't lose. You can only learn about your driver, learn about yourself and try to stay awake with the Desert Bus.
