Isn't it on the west coast where they filmed The Goonies, Astoria was the city I think?

I hope this game meets my expectations.

Didn't a French company make The Oregon Trail? Why are Americans not capitalizing on their own discoveries?!

I was wondering about the gameplay too.. I guess I'll look at a few gameplay videos and see if it's fun.. The graphics are really good though!

In terms of the gameplay, you may want to look at some of the previous threads for user experience. There were comments that the results were a bit scripted which killed the strategy.
