    • This site is what got me slightly obsessed on the various releases of the Oregon Trail. Okay... Maybe more than SLIGHTLY obsessed. Sure, everybody likes talking about how the DOS release is on the sight but they failed to mention the deluxe (MS-DOS), Macintosh (which is basically a port of deluxe), and even a EARLY TEXT BASED version of the game for the Commodore 64! Apparently, it was technically an offical release. MECC included it on a floppy disk with two other prototype games on it, although it was labeled OREGON back then. For those who are curious, here's the link for the C64 version: archive.org/details/d64_Oregon_Trail_19xx_-

  • Aw man, anyone else notice that A.C.M.E. HQ is set in San Francisco circa 2020? Here is my theory: Carmen successfully altered the timeliness where A.C.M.E. existed and that some action A.C.M.E. took between its foundation and today prevented the horrible mess we are in now, allowing for an albeit declining A.C.M.E. to still exist in this time line. Something something 5G, something something chemtrails.

  • I played the 1997 version of this game, "Carmen Sandiego's Great Chase through Time," as a fourth grader almost 18 years ago. It was one of the most fun games I've ever played in my life, and I learned so much about world histories that were not covered in my school's curriculum, in particular East Asian history. I think they should reboot it, it's just a fun game in general that kids of all generations would enjoy

  • I had the win 95 remake as a kid. I remember playing it at my local public library, they’d have a whole bunch of CD-ROM software and PCs to try it out. My mom thought it was pretty cool I guess and bought it later on. I pretty distinctly remember one part taking place in ancient Egypt, but that’s about all that comes to mind. Would love to see an LGR retrospective on that version too
