Opticraft plays...Oregon Trail!
« on: April 09, 2014, 03:51:24 am »
So I saw this on another server's forum and I thought "hey...why don't we have any interactive games like this? It's an excellent roleplay experience". So I bring it to you, my friends. You will thank me later.

So what we're gonna do is play the original Oregon Trail game released for the Apple IIe, in a little bit of a different way. Basically what I'm gonna do is implement people's names into the game and you will all watch and comment on the progress made. I feel it'll be fun and really encourage a little roleplay into the community. You can make silly comments to your fellow travelers and either encourage/predict potential outcomes.

I will take the names of anyone who posts on this thread (more specifically those who ask for their names to be used). The names will be picked in order so everyone gets their turn. Leaders will be decided once all 5 slots have been filled. I'll probably use some kind of random name picker to decide the leader of the trip.

If for some odd reason you survive/were the healthiest in your trip, you're automatically placed on the trip next round. Because we all just want to watch you die :3.

Every time I get an update from the game regarding our journey on the trail, I will post a new picture with commentary. I will however avoid stops at landmarks and forts because there really isn't much to see there. Whenever I'm doing a journey, I'll be posting progress at random intervals throughout the day, in order to encourage some comments from you guys.

Rules
  • Comments, tips and roleplay are encouraged
  • Please respect others
  • Do not suggest others without their given permission.
  • Have fun!

Thank you to the first five for bravely volunteering for a treacherous journey, filled with bandits and disease!

Game will most likely begin tomorrow when I'm free. Stay tuned.

Don't worry. This group's glorious leader - Claw - will guide them to safety.

Also, I elect Wone as the go-to man in case we need a human sacrifice/are bored.

I'm sad to inform you all that as I was attempting to complete the game, everything crashed. With the crash, I have also lost all game progress (because there is no save function). I apologize for the inconvenience and any time that was wasted.

If you will all allow me, I'd like to try again but this time I'll record a video. If progress is once again lost, I can just upload the video for you all to watch.

It was all running so smoothly but I guess my computer is a piece of shit.
