For gamers of a certain age, The Oregon Trail isn’t just a game, it’s an experience that has never really been duplicated. But developer Victorian Clambake is going to try with The Caribbean Sail, a game where players try not to die of dysentery as they set sail for Nassau:
Name your crew… Choose your profession… Purchase a ship… Buy supplies… Set sail for Nassau… Spear fish for food… Get dysentery. Survive the voyage and set an online highscore or die horribly. Then do it all again
Featuring retro-styled graphics, and that “edutainment” feel you can only get from The Oregon Trail, The Caribbean Sail is now available to purchase (for $2.99) from the developer’s official website.
Victorian Clambake is also trying to get the game on Steam, and they’re seeking your votes through Steam Greenlight now.
