Oregon Trail: Origins

Surprised no one has posted anything about this.

The Oregon Trail: Origins Hands-On
April 1st, 2009 — by: Steve Tags: News, Previews
Gameloft revealed a new top-secret project today that tickled our primordial animal brains--The Oregon Trail: Origins!
A quick blurb from the presser:
"Before there were settlers, there were cavemen. Often forgotten, largely ignored, they paved the treacherous roads of the Oregon Trail before there was an Oregon Trail.
Gameloft’s newest title brings The Oregon Trail: Origins to all the wannabe Neanderthals of the 21st century. The game will be available for all platforms."

We actually received an exclusive early build of the game along with the announcement, and we've been playing it all morning. The idea is to transit the Bering Land Bridge from Siberia and make it down to Oregon, before the killer glacier catches up with your party of nomads.
We loved the primitive hoots and growls that pass for the game's music, and we also have special praise for the sabretooth defense and fire-starting minigames. - Slidetoplay

even if it was real, its obviously a marketing method to stick "oregon trail" to the name. it has nothing to do with oregon trail. its like creating a roman game and putting star wars in the name, saying "at the same time as this is happening in the star wars galaxy, bla bla is happening across the universe"

Yeah but no word on this website. I just saw this today for some reason but got this article from Slidetoplay as you can see on the bottom. Searched and did everything but nothing of this type of article came up.

Anyways, I don't know about you guys but this game looks really cool. I liked Oregon Trails and the artwork was really good.
