Would you like to ford the river? Oregon Trail expected to hit Facebook
I usually ignore just about every Facebook game or app request (no, I will not join your mafia or water your plants in Farmville), but I can definitely see myself wasting lots of time traversing the trails in a covered wagon and crying over friends and family as they die from cholera or dysentery.
Meanwhile, if your wanderlust is reaching past the old west, you can also try out the Facebook version of Where in the World is Carmen Sandiego. The scarlet-clad spy who put the "miss" in "missdemeanor" and (allegedly) stole the beans from Lima is coming back to our computers as well. Both games are slated to launch this February.
Check out the trailers for both games.
Now if only they can get Rockapella to come back and sing the Carmen Sandiego theme song...
Hey, a girl can dream, can't she?
