A playable version of Oregon Trail to promote Oregon tourism

The semi-independent Oregon Tourism Commission has created a playable version of the classic Apple ][-era adventure game Oregon Trail to promote Oregon tourism.

I played for a while and didn't die of dysentery; instead I helped out at a Portland craft brewery, went skiing, threw out tees at a hockey game and bought kombucha in the general outfitters.

It's pretty adorable stuff.
