GDC 2015: ‘Does Not Commute’ Isn’t Just a Clever Name, It’s Also Hilariously Fun

Mediocre Games is probably the most oxymoronic developer out there. With beloved titles like Smash Hit (Free) and Sprinkle ($1.99), their games are anything but mediocre. Their next game really drives this point home though, as it’s far and away the most I’ve laughed and had fun playing a video game this entire week at GDC. This new game is called Does Not Commute, and at its most basic level it’s all about driving a vehicle from point A to point B. The catch is that once you successfully get one vehicle where it needs to go, that vehicle repeats its route in subsequent rounds. Those previous routes just keep on piling up, and eventually Does Not Commute becomes a frantic mess of vehicles all intent on crashing right into you.

It’s hard to put into words just how stupidly awesome Does Not Commute is, but hopefully our fits of uncontrollable laughter in the video gives you an idea of how much fun this game is to play. I’ve seen a lot of great stuff at GDC this week, but I’m really going to have a hard time waiting to get my hands back on this one. Fortunately it’s not too far off, so expect Does Not Commute to arrive sometime next month or very shortly thereafter.
