About

American Bus Simulator 2018 is a realistic bus driving simulator that takes players into a career of bus driving around in different cities around the United States such as Pittsburgh, Seattle, Philadelphia, and many more!

Game Features

  • Begin a career as a bus driver in the fictional Felicia County as you drive your way to the top as the best bus driver in the nation
  • Includes 6 realistic buses: 1 35-ft diesel bus; 2 40 ft buses, 1 diesel, 1 hybrid-electric; 4 articulated buses, 2 high-floor diesel, 1 low-floor diesel, 1 low-floor hybrid-electric
  • Travel around the county on over 500 miles of road from the urban city center of Downtown to the high peaks of the Silver Crescent Mountains to the Breeze Harbor and Seaport of at the base of Redview Canyon
  • Customize your own unique avatar and develop your own style of bus driver
  • Create your own or modify existing routes using the ABS Routing Configuration Tool
  • Design your own cities and towns or modify current ones using the ABS Map Editor
  • Join or invite your friends in an online multiplayer session to share stats, routes, and even your own modded content
  • And much more to come!

Money Allocation

  • Laptop computer: The new laptop will provide the necessary power and resources for me to continue developing the game. It also serves as a way to work on the game in case I'm on the road away from home. The current setup I have doesn't allow me to do that as seen in the project's photo header.
  • Computer software: To avoid restrictions, I will need to obtain pro licenses of both Unity 5.x and Google SketchUp 2016. 
  • Website: Once the game development has gained some steam (no pun intended), I will have a website developed highlighting all of the details and features of the game.

Risks and challenges

The biggest challenge is time; I'm the only one working on this game and because of that, I'm allowing for two years of development; I may finish the project before that two year mark, however the remaining time will be used to test the game for any bugs or glitches that may occur. If it comes down to where I need help, I will certainly ask for it.

Project delays can happen due to events out of my control (natural disaster, power outage, funeral, etc); in the event of a delay, everyone will be notified through the official Facebook page.

There is the chance the game may not get greenlit on Steam. If that happens, those who donated will receive a DRM-free copy of the game.
