Fooling around with the wonderfully absurd Oregon Trail handheld.

I wonder : Is this the first time an RPG has been published in a dedicated handheld?

@apLundell

Having grown up in OR, I find that exceedingly wonderful. But I've never seen any thing like it. The graphics are surprisingly nice.

What is the purpose of that thing?

@wion Ha! The purpose is to extract $25 from nostalgic thirty-something nerds who remember playing this game on an Apple II computer.

If you went to an American middle school in the 80s or early 90s, This was likely the only game allowed in the computer lab. So everyone played it at least once.

But, I'm happy to report that the game is still fun, all these years later.

@apLundell that is the most beautiful thing i have ever seen
