It's The Oregon Trail, but with zombies. And Clements. And zombies. And shotguns. And scavenging for food and supplies. And zombies. And dysentery. And references. And zombies. And biker gangs. And... did I mention it has zombies?

In all seriousness, this is a really fun parody of The Oregon Trail. You lead a party of four other survivors in your quest to safe haven, all while fending off zombies, scavenging for food and supplies, dealing with dysentery, fending off biker gangs and undead fauna, and wondering how exactly one would break their leg inside a station wagon. Campaign Mode is your quest to Safe Haven, while Endless Mode lets you travel forever (so long as you maintain your supplies and pray that none of your party members survive) while completing challenges that unlock new presets and buffs that add replayability to the game. If you always thought The Oregon Trail was missing zombies, then this is the game for you.

I have probably used most of my hours just restarting the game over and over watching and listening to the intro!
Great game!

Picked up this gem at the Winter Sale 2015. Definitely worth it, especially the director's cut.
This game is a tribute to the (ugh, educational) game The Oregon Trail, but the Organ Trail is similar in a fashion of going across the United States, scavenging/hunting for suplies, mainting your vehicle, and generally surviving. Definitely work a look.

Well-done remake of an original classic. Lightweight tongue-in-cheek retro, a very good game by itself, and a very good opportunity to get to know this piece of game history if you, like me, haven't tasted it earlier.

Makes me wonder that, by modern naming conventions, roguelike-like was discovered before roguelike actually... :)

One thing to note about this review: I've only played through with the expansion, so I'm not sure how the vanilla game holds up by comparison. I can tell you that with the expansion, this game is pretty fun. It's not particularly hard on the normal difficulty, so you might wanna ramp it up a bit if yer a veteran. Granted, it does take some play time to get used to the swing of things, but one or two playthroughs should do for that. What controls there are handle the way that they should, so minigame segments are easy enough to get the hang of. The core of the gameplay seems to come more from being good at managing yer little party's survival. There's plenty of that to be done and a decent amount of customisation to change things up. Different road events do well enough to keep things interesting. A couple different modes and plenty of unlockables and secrets make replays pretty worthwhile. There are some glitches that I've encountered that can stop the game from progressing but loading the save seems to remedy that. The soundtrack is equal parts retro, moody, and even epic. While not terribly exciting, the game can put you on the edge of yer seat. Content isn't huge but it's big enough to keep ya comin' back for a little while. For the price, it's a good game.
