As my son and I were running to catch the bus the other day, he started humming a tune. The tune sounded a bit like a video game and I had a revelation.
Stockholmers (and anyone in a big city) would totally go crazy for a game where you have to catch the bus! It’s just like a racing game with a clock. You have obstacles (crossing street, slow lady on phone blocking sidewalk, construction, etc.).
You could even have later versions and add-ons. Bus Catch Winter! “Oh no! There’s too much snow for the buses to drive and the subways are too crowded! You don’t have a car. How do you get to work 30 minutes away?”
Copyrighted by me. I’m telling you. It could be a big hit!
It would be a big hit in India too, where I live. It’s like the drivers here are completely focused on keeping everyone in shape by making them run for miles before finally slowing down-never stopping-and letting them climb aboard.
