New Travel Oregon game hopes to bring attention to the region
Created as an homage to the classic video game from the '70s and '80s, Travel Oregon's new version is a tribute, created under license from Houghton Mifflin Harcourt to ensure that it harkens back to the original experience.
Available now through Dec. 31 at traveloregon.com, "Travel Oregon: The Game" is a mobile-first experience, designed using the pixelated aesthetic of the classic game. Explorers can start in any part of the state and then continue along a connecting path that loops through all seven regions of Oregon. It includes Oregon inside jokes, history and side quests along the way, including modern-day activities such as skiing on the slopes, a selfie meter and even the opportunity to read actual e-books by a campfire.
