Found Footage: The Oregon Trail-er
Were you one of the millions of American kids who grew up playing MECC's classic educational video game The Oregon Trail? Several TUAW bloggers remember spending hours in front of an Apple II coaxing their pioneers ever Westward, only to have them die of snakebite, dysentery, or cholera.
Well, the witty folks at Half Day Today! Films created a trailer for a "film adaptation" of The Oregon Trail, which takes a potshot at many of the quirks of the game. If you grew up with this game and want a good laugh, check out the video above. Just don't go into the brush; you may get bitten by a snake!
