If you're not familiar with The Oregon Trail, which is entirely possible as I have discovered recently I may be getting older (just a rumor), then you might not entirely enjoy it. I'll admit a lot of the fun has to do with the novelty of having a classic game from childhood redone in such a fashion. Back in my day (cough) it was hard to think of The Oregon Trail as an educational game but I could see how people who have never played before may not be wowed by this iteration. However, if you're into strategy and have some time, I'd say give it a shot.

Their Kickstarter campaign was a smashing success, so you can expect to see this game on your phone in the future. To be honest, I would pay a nominal fee if one were required. It's definitely worth it.
These guys clearly love gaming and are having fun creating games. On their website you can even find a flash version of one of the casino games you can play in Pokemon (Zero Flip). So all you poke-gamblers can practice up without the coin loss!
My only disappointment so far is that no one has died of dysentery. Of course, there's always time for that as the wagon rolls on.
