Play the Original Oregon Trail Game

You have died of dysentery.

The quote above from the game Oregon Trail is an internet meme at this point... but did you know it wasn't in the original game? The first version of Oregon Trail was a text-only adventure written for a timeshare computer that students would interact with at a teletype terminal. It was this version that I first encountered. I have been wanting to see it again for some time now.

This is my attempt to recreate that original version of "The Oregon Trail". There are no graphics. Whenever the computer has printed out its part, you will get an input box for your response. Just type into it and press Enter/Return. If the program is expecting a number, you will only be able to type numbers into the box.

Please enjoy! If you are interested, here is an essay with more background on why and how I put this together.
