What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“The genre of simulators opens a huge number of opportunities for developers. Simulators enable us to reconstruct what we see in real life. We are a small indie studio and what we can do is by far limited. We'd like to share what we have already done, as well as our views concerning the implementation of the project.
We need the support of the players in order to get quick feedback about every innovation in the game, as well as opinions as to what to add and what to work on next. Early access allows us to shape the game according to the expectations of the players.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“We plan to keep the game in early access until it is a finished product that meets the needs of the majority of the players in the target audience. According to our estimates, this will take from six months to one year.”

How is the full version planned to differ from the Early Access version?

“We plan to add a free ride mode around the city. It will enable the player to choose which route to take. The money earned can be spent on the purchase of new buses, as well as on the improvements available.
We plan to expand the existing map, meanwhile modeling the quarters in accordance with the location of the houses, roads and objects as in real life.
In addition to the existing map, we would like to add at least one more. We plan to add a European city, because architecture, as well as roads in Russia (on the existing map) and in Europe are different. We would also like to add some suburban routes.
Of course, new buses need to be added. We want people from different countries to ride the buses they see in real life.
This is only a small part of our plans – we will talk about others in the process of updating the version of the game in early access.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“So far only three buses and nearly ten scenarios are available.
Traffic, passenger traffic and traffic violations are implemented.
Our special pride is a modeled real city.”

Will the game be priced differently during and after Early Access?

“We plan to raise the price of the game with a full release.”

How are you planning on involving the Community in your development process?

“We will conduct surveys from time to time to find out what innovations are expected most of all by players. This applies not only to the gameplay, but also to the content – the addition of buses, cars and routes.
In addition to adding a new one, active work with the community will allow us to quickly adjust the existing functionality.”

Last discount before the big update!

As many know, the main flaw of road traffic is its low speed which does not conform the real speed on roads. When increased traffic speed, we understood that we need to rearrange schedule timings. At some point we decided to give you ability to edit timings as you want. Meanwhile, other cars on road have learned to accelerate on straight streets, slow down on turns and brake even more on speed bumps.



In the future update you will need to occasionally refuel your bus. As is known, in modern life you will not go far without fuel, so if it ends while you are on route, you will need to call a tow truck and your working day will be ruined. In the city there will be several gas stations, which you can visit anytime. Besides, you can refuel in your garage if you are running out of fuel, but it will be way more expensive than doing it at a gas station.

By the way, on the screenshots below you can see another new bus.



Recently we did giant amount of work, many things were redone and polished. Every road and sidewalk was redone from scratch, many houses were redone as well. Now you can drive day and night, on every bus on any route in Career mode.



We’re not yet ready to upload this update in Steam, now we came to the testing and bug-fixing development stage. Release date will be announced soon, but it’s quite close. We hope that your expectations will be fulfilled!



And only now you have the last opportunity to buy the game at a discount before the release of this great update!

About This Game

Try on the role of a driver of a passenger bus! Take a ride in a real city, strictly following the schedule.

The game implements realistic traffic and simulated passenger traffic, depending on the time of the day. Drive people to their work places in the morning, when the roads are blocked with high traffic, and during the daytime when there are much less passengers and cars on the roads.

About 10 different scenarios with different conditions are available in the game.

Virtual City imitates the real one in detail, as close to reality as possible. Buildings, stops and other facilities are situated in the places they belong.

Driving has never been so realistic! Connect the game steering wheel and pedals for the sake of a full immersion into the game.
