If you’re looking for a computer game that combines Trek action with the charm of a classic education program, the wait is over. Introducing Orion Trail, a clever take on the old Oregon Trail series of games. Orion Trail is a single player space adventure currently on Kickstarter. Read on for more info and a video Let’s Play of the demo.
Embark on the Orion Trail!
In the game, you take the role of captain, choosing your mission, your ship, and your officers. On your way, you’ll be confronted by various challenges, which will test one of your five abilities – aggression, tactics, diplomacy, science, bravado. You also have to manage resources like food, crew, and hull.
If you can survive the dangerous Orion Trail, glory will be yours forever! If you fail… well, you’ll probably immediately replay it. A demo is currently available, which you can try yourself here. Or you can watch the Trek Movie official Let’s Play where we take the action to you!
The Kickstarter runs through March 12. So far they have reached over $40,000 of their $90,000 goal.
