How much is the Donner Party DLC?

I'll wait for the Oculus Quest version anyway.

Yep. Not kind at all.

I dunno about that. I remember playing it in high school during a particularly brutal winter in Montana, and while entertaining enough to kill the time (over the winter), I've never desired to sit back down and play it again.

Aside from nostalgia, I cannot imagine this being terribly fun.

I remember playing this on the old apple and imagining the settlers using roofing caulk to seal the wagon to float it down the river.

It does look like they've added a fair bit of depth, which may or may not be to the betterment of the game, but it's at least worth a look.  At $30, though?  For Oregon Trail?  Hard no.  Let me know when it's on sale for half-price, and maybe then.

Don't exactly remember the "Wagon explodes in spectacular fashion" feature in the older versions but why not?

I still think it's weird that this game didn't make it to my school.  Everything we did was on an Apple IIe+, and we had Paws Teaches Typing (I got close to 100 WPM when I loaded it in an emulator a few years ago, and that was with nonsensical character combinations), Math Blaster, and various choose-your-own-adventure type games.  I didn't touch Oregon Trail until my 30s, and that was after Organ Trail launched as a Flash game.

I'll occasionally pull up Oregon Trail in a browser-based Apple emultor, and it's rare that I don't ace it, outside of  the kids being stupid and breaking their legs and dying.  Stay on the damned wagon, idiots!
