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.
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.
