My VERY LATE game idea - desert bug

DoctorMikeReddy

At 2 hours 15 minutes and 40 seconds there is the only recorded incident of bug hitting a windscreen in the amazing game "Desert Bus" from the unofficially unreleased Sega CD title "Smoke and Mirrors" by Penn and Teller. See:

and http://waxy.org/2006/02/penn_tellers_sm/

So here's the idea. I make the bug's version of the game. Staying on the road for nearly 5 hours waiting for the bus to pass and end your existence...

Here are my reference images:

http://www.meatfighter.com/j4k2009/desertbus/ provides a java based emulator of Desert Bus without the HUD (sic) that provided images to be used as the background for our game.
