The Oregon Trail is an educational computer game developed by Don Rawitsch, Bill Heinemann and Paul Dillenberger in 1971 and produced by MECC in 1974. The game was inspired by the real-life Oregon Trail and was designed to teach school children about the realities of 19th century pioneer life on the trail. The player assumes the role of wagon leader guiding his party of settlers from Independence, Missouri, to Oregon's Willamette Valley by way of the Oregon Trail via a Conestoga wagon in 1848. - Wikipedia

    i forgot that game even existed lol me and my friends were so obsessed with that game we would go play it during lunch in like 4th and 5th grade. I remember the part where you get on the Columbia River and you have to steer your oxen and wagon on like a wooden raft...that level was so hard haha....i dont even think i beat the game...im pretty sure most of my people died from famine lol but the hunting was always fun in that game =)

    Wow, a game I used to play so much and rarely won. I usually had broken wheels all the way, and people dying of typhoid all around me. Loved it, anyway. =)

    I loved that game... I remember getting computer time in the lab on those "old-school" computers you had to boot up. Is there a way to still get your hands on that game for free?
