DBX Game Jam – The Games

This year during DBX some of our community got together to form the Desert Bus for Hope 10 Game Jam which resulted in 11 new games. If you’re missing Desert Bus a little bit, here’s a chance to experience Desert Bus in a whole new way. Thanks to everyone who shared their creations with us.

We are off to go sleep somewhere. We’ll see you on the other side of the road. Much love from everyone here at Desert Bus for Hope HQ.
