About the Game

The Oregon Trail was a game first produced by a teacher in the 1970s and designed to teach children about the early pioneer days in American history.

First produced to run on a mainframe computer system, the game was immediatly popular with children, despite being text only.

The game made it onto the Apple platform in the early 1980s, this time with simple graphics. Migrated to the PC in the early 1990s where it developed through five versions. It was marketed by 'The Learning Company.'

On February 2nd 2011 the game was re-created for The Learning Company by Blue Fang as a Facebook application.
