Could you survive a journey along the Oregon Trail? The Oregon Tourism Commission, dba Travel Oregon, is inviting all adventurers to try with the launch of “Travel Oregon: The Game,” created as an homage to the classic game many remember from childhood. The Oregon Trail is one of the most popular computer games of all time and Travel Oregon’s version is a tribute, developed under license from Houghton Mifflin Harcourt to ensure that it harkens back to the original experience.
The game will be available through Dec. 31 and is designed using the aesthetic of the original game. With the classic game as inspiration, Travel Oregon creates its own trail through seven travel regions of Oregon, making for a much easier and less treacherous trek than the historic route stretching nearly 2,000 miles from Independence, Missouri. Explorers can start in any part of the state and then continue along a connecting path that loops through Eastern Oregon, Southern Oregon, Portland Region, Oregon Coast, Mt. Hood & Columbia River Gorge, Willamette Valley and Central Oregon.
