The Oregon Trail: now available for Facebook
If you’re of a certain age, you likely played Oregon Trail in elementary school on an old Apple computer. You and your family set out with your oxen and foodstuffs and occasionally ran into trouble, so you had to hunt for food, try to cross a rising river, maybe somebody stole all your clothes. It’s a beloved game. Wednesday, the company that made that game launched a Facebook version. Next up – on Feb. 9th, the company will unveil another game from your elementary school days: Where in the World is Carmen Sandiego.
