Play Oregon Trail Online – Die of Dysentery

TimIn honor of our comic this week, I thought I’d point you to a site where you can play the original version of Oregon Trail online for free! I’m going to assume it’s all legal since it hasn’t been taken down, so go crazy, make those buffalo extinct, try to ford the Mississippi, and watch your family die of cholera and dysentery! It’s seems to have a few bugs with the color, but it was still playable for me.

  3. Noodle says:

    You’re not trying hard enough =]

    Ugh. I don’t have fond memories of this game…I’d rather play Castle Crashers. XD

    I’m not so sure that it’s legal, because there was an “Oregon Trail” app on Facebook that got turned into “Northwest Trail” because of copyright stuff. That might be different legally, though, because the copyright might still apply, while the original game is so old it’s “public domain” now or something (like how you can find Pac-Man online a lot of places). I guess while it’s there, though, it’d be fine to play.

    hmmm… here’s how my first play went:
    Tim died from a broken leg
    Ray died of disentery
    Roadjcat also died of disentary,
    Tacos and I made it to Oregon…

    I win (kinda) I should have bought more food though, we ran out before the first stop, thank goodness I got enough ammo to last us most of the rest of the way.

    Man, that was fun. First we lost Dj75728 to desentry, and then Ray followed shortly after to the same fate. Once I made it to the end, I decided to float down the Columbia River while listening to Living on a Prayer for inspiration. The end was in sight! We were almost there! And then Tim drowned. 🙁 At least me and Kyzin made it.

    Anyway, that game made my speakers all wonky for a bit. And it turns out that I had played a different Oregon Trail back in school. The one I played was the 1992 version, which is the same basic concept, just a bit newer. Here’s a video of it. Not to mention the guy gives a pretty good explanation of the game. 😀 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ht8GWOwdc30

    Roadjcat also died of disentary,

    Should I be happy that you used me, or mad that I died? XD

    um… Happy?
    Hey, You didn’t die in vain. I made it and started a new life in Oregon, Your ghost should be proud of Me (and to a lesser extent, Tacos)!!!

    I’m in Canberra Noodle. Also, I’m kinda angry that I don’t have like any game playing software on this computer aside from flash. (and it’s flash 9 D:) so yeah, I can’t play this.

  14. billtodamax says:

    I was gonna do this in a edit but, the edit function’s gone, so…
    Should I be unhappy that no one used me, or glad that I didn’t die of dysentery. (it’s spelled with a Y D3vin)

    That looks like the version I played, too.

    Man, that was fun. I’m sorry, but Tim… You drowned… And Ray, you died of a broken leg… Somehow… At least its better than dieing from exhaustion like one of my people did. And CK died of a snake bite after one day… I was the only one who made it 🙁

  17. Tim says:

    I just finished my first go at it and no one died! Ray broke an arm, but that’s because he was whining about the food rations. What I didn’t get was that after an oxen died, my food supply didn’t go up. We could have eaten hamburgers all the way to Oregon!

    It is like eating your Pet when it dies, You just can’t. The electronic people inside the game thought the electronic Oxen were almost like family after a while so they buried it instead or flushed it down the electronic computer toilet or whatever you do with a dead electronic Ox ….

    Neither, That just means you aren’t as big of a 2p Starter than the other people whose names got used. And I spelled it in phonetics, Even though it was right there in front of me as the webpage’s title…:(

    I dunno…. oxen that die of dysentery probably aren’t very tasty ;p

    and it’s probably contagious…

    im attempting another (hopefully successful this time…) run thru now.

    Not in cruelty
    Not in wrath
    The REAPER came today
    An ANGEL visited
    this gray path
    And took the Cube D3vin away.

    Too bad there wasn’t enough text to write that as my epitaph, so I just wrote instead “still alive”

    “Hey, it’s your funeral!” works on so many levels here 😉

    Well, my last comment didn’t show up (probably because of a bunch of links and it’s awaiting moderation), but in the mean time, you can check out some screenshots of my trek here:

    So you don’t know all the Pokemon? That should be remedied…now. XD

    XD Really? I just took a pic of the Alien from Castle Crashers (since I’ve been playing both games) and stuck it on there. Is it awesome because of Alien Hominid or Castle Crashers or…what?
