New Final Cut Expansion Launches October 20th



https://youtu.be/s3hCnr26d8A

Organ Trail Final Cut Expansion(link) Launches October 20th!

Organ Trail has been with us for 5 years now and it's continued success across multiple platforms and now multiple expansions has kept The Men Who Wear Many Hats' doors open. As a celebration and to announce the new content in Organ Trail, we hired Imagos Films to make this amazing short film featuring our favorite unsung hero.

When we set out to put Organ Trail on consoles, we decided that we wouldn't just add controller support but that we were going to add every feature we and our fans ever wanted. We took down a list of all the features we never got to or that we thought we would be too difficult to add to the game and we added them! Not only that, we upgraded a lot of the core game with new art, new scenarios, balance tweaks and bug fixes.

Co-op

Our biggest new feature is probably the co-op. How does it work? Well, we asked ourselves that for years as players kept asking for it but we couldn't see how it would ever make sense. The idea we finally settled on came from a conversation I had with a friend who said he wished his children could pick up the controller and play with them, even if it was only during the scavenging bits. Now, during basically any combat scenario (and a few other hidden ones) a friend on the second controller can jump in and assist you. During scavenging, player 2 takes control of a dog that can stun zombies with a bark and grab supplies and bring them back to the player. During shootouts or fishing, player 2 takes the role of one of your party members helping you shoot bandits or catch extra food. Player 2 can even take the wheel if you don't have the guts to put down an infected party member. There's lots of fun stuff we added so I implore you to explore the game and find them for yourself.

Hahaha, get it? It's like Oregon Trail, but...

No, it really is Oregon Trail with zombies. But instead of being a one-note joke, Organ Trail actually improves on the original formula in significant ways. If you somehow never encountered an Apple IIe in school, the basic idea of ______ Trail games is that you have a party of 4 or so travelers on their way to a distant destination. Random things happen on the way, sometimes you get a choice to make, other times not. Settlements give you the chance to shop, barter, or scavenge for supplies. Organ Trail sets this up as you and your 4 pals escaping D.C. in a beat-up station wagon, carrying as much food, ammo, car parts, and fuel as you can. In addition to the random horrible things that happen, you'll also encounter minigames like dodging zombie deer and motorcycle gangs on the highway, or making a clutch shot to save a friend from a kidnapper. These interactive events really help break up the monotony of watching your beater roll down the highway while bad things happen to you all.

Settlements are where the game really shines, because there are a wealth of options for managing your journey. In terms of supplies alone, you can buy and sell for cash, wait for trade offers on your goods, scavenge by playing a little top-down action minigame, and do side missions (also minigames) to get paid in goods. There are additional options for managing the health of your team, for maintaining and upgrading your ride, and even learning new special skills for your player character that help in minigames. Learning how much you need of what resources and what upgrades you should spring for can take time, so be prepared to either lose a few times or start on Easy. The first time I picked this game up I got rather frustrated because my car broke down and I got trapped in a settlement with no way to repair it. But after a few more rounds I learned the power of scavenging and practiced my minigaming and now everything runs smooth... on Normal, anyway.

It's a pretty deep game for a literal Oregon Trail clone, and the zombie aspect fits the style well without being tired. There are some cute pop culture references that are clever enough not to annoy, and plenty of replay value. As long as the ultra low-res graphics and learning curve don't put you off, this is a grand little coffee break game.

I just murdered a bunch of innocent people to save my friend only for him to be hit by a stray bullet a few minutes later and die. Then one of my other friends went to take a ♥♥♥♥ and she never came back. This game tugs at the feels and it is freaking awesome. 8/10

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.
