Travel Oregon: The Game Toolkit

Travel Oregon is inviting all adventurers to survive a journey along the Oregon Trail with the launch of “Travel Oregon: The Game,” created as an homage to the classic game many remember from childhood. The Oregon Trail is one of the most popular computer games of all time and Travel Oregon’s version is a tribute, created under license from Houghton Mifflin Harcourt to ensure that it harkens back to the original experience.


The game launches Oct. 26 and will be available through Dec. 16. With the classic game as inspiration, Travel Oregon creates its own trail through the seven travel regions of Oregon, making for a much easier and less treacherous trek than the historic route stretching about 2,000 miles from Independence, Missouri. Explorers can start in any part of the state and then continue along a connecting path that loops through Eastern Oregon, Southern Oregon, the Coast, Portland Region, Mt. Hood/Columbia River Gorge, the Willamette Valley and Central Oregon. The goal of “Travel Oregon: The Game” is to encourage travel in and around the state during winter months.
