Organ Trail

If you grew up in the 80's or 90's you very well remember the addictive and extremely fun break from book work in elementary school with the game Oregon Trail. The fast paced adventure where you and your families chances of survival are slim to none on your way to the promised land of milk and honey.

From random deaths, to snake bites, to drowning because my dumb ass decided to ford the 8 food deep river, this game was freakin frustrating!

Luckily for me and everyone else who ripped out their hair from frustration as a kid, the guys over at The Men Who Wear Many Hats recreated the same game with the blessings from the Learning Company (The guys who made the original). Only this time they added zombies to the mix


It starts off as any other game of Oregon Trail would start, choose when you want to go during the day. Scavenge for supplies and other useless crap you will probably loose anyway. And name you and your game family silly names like Butt and Booger and Kim Kardashian. (I hope the last one is the first to go). Then its off on the unforgiving infected landscape with nothing but your whits and the will to survive, because we all know that luck is not with you in these kind of games. Maybe you'll make it, maybe you won't. But then that's why reset was invented right?

If you want to get in on the action, it can be played for free HERE

Be a little more patient and you can soon play it on your iPhones and iPads and such.

That way you can have something else to do with them than using them to solve Rubix Cubes.

I remember playing this game awhile back... it's far too easy! Needs to be way more brutal and unforgiving, like the original.

I used to love that game minus the zombies attacking everyone.

This is AWESOME! I can't wait to see what happens this time when the third name entered dies of dysentery. I also can't wait for Where in the World is Carmen San Deadego. (wow that was a terrible pun. I admonish my self for the horror of that god awful nonsense.)
