The annual Desert Bus for Hope marathon, which has a troop of staunch soldiers playing the worst video game ever made for days on end to raise money for Child’s Play, is now taking donations. The more you give, the longer the poor players have to stick with the famously boring sim. With ten days till the event kicks off, gamers have already secured 74 hours of utter mind-numbing torture with more than $2,000 donated. Make someone miserable and earn good karma by throwing a dollar in the hat here.

The notorious Desert Bus, Penn and Teller’s incredibly boring and unrewarding parody simulation, is now available on both iOS and Android. It’s worth owning just to say you’ve experienced it, but all proceeds from the 99 cent app go straight to penny Arcade’s charity Child’s Play, which provides toys and games for hospitalised kids.
In related news, at time of writing the annual Desert Bus for Hope marathon, a tradition of the end-of-year Child’s Play drive, is on the 69th of 134 hours, and over $131,000 in donations.
