      I plan to write an update about it in the next few days!

    2. Creator ryan gravell on May 12, 2012

      Any news? Hows the full time, indie game developer working out?

    3. Creator The Men Who Wear Many Hats on March 12, 2012

      You are absolutely right. Sorry for the radio silence. We've been sitting on 3 different updates that are all waiting for the final piece to fall so we can post them. Luckily I got one of those pieces over the weekend so expect an update tonight.

    4. Creator Charlie Poulin on March 8, 2012

      Not to bug you guys, but could we get some updates? Nothing too big, I'd just like to hear about where you are and what kinds of successes or problems are cropping up. Best of Luck!

    5. Creator The Men Who Wear Many Hats on February 17, 2012

      I've been saying "spring" for the game. maybe late April... But things are subject to change since this is our first product.

      Also we are currently waiting on money to be in a place where we can spend it. I would like to send the shirts out by the end of the month.

    6. Creator Satheian on February 16, 2012

      Any ECD for when the game might be release?
      And tshirts mailed? :)

    7. Creator Graeme on January 26, 2012

      Man, never realised how difficult it would be to think of what to put on the tombstone. Went with something a little dark and hopefully a little funny in the end. Can't wait for the game to come out!

    8. Creator The Men Who Wear Many Hats on January 24, 2012

      It's just what you type. If you type "poop" you will only see the word "poop" in the middle of the tombstone.

    9. Creator Joshua James on January 24, 2012

      Can you help at all with the logistics of the tombstone quote? Is it 100% of what is shown or is the name, an intro, or date already included?

    10. Creator Jean-Francois Bouchard on January 24, 2012

      I'm having trouble figuring out what to write for the tombstone.
      What will they be used for exactly?
      I've never played Oregon Trail so I can't really try to link them to something I'd remember from it.

    11. Creator The Men Who Wear Many Hats on January 22, 2012

      Thank you for the support my good man!

    12. Creator Richard J Afton on January 21, 2012

      Chicago is your HQ location. That terrific. I was born in Chicago a long time ago but I still visit. I now live in Chattanooga, TN. This is the first time I have helped fund the development of a game. The game looks great. I shall wait eagerly until it is available. Thanks for the opportunity to help, to be slightly involved, and have some fun at the same time.

    13. Creator Terence Bowlby on January 21, 2012

      Sounds good. Thanks!

    14. Creator The Men Who Wear Many Hats on January 21, 2012

      There is no solid year. It's sorta "now" but we won't say exactly (It's mysterious/undecided.) You could always put 20?? or 201?

    15. Creator Terence Bowlby on January 21, 2012

      What year is it in the game? 2012? I'd like to know, for putting it on my tombstone.

    16. Creator Stormy on January 19, 2012

      Congrats! :D :D :D

    17. Creator The Men Who Wear Many Hats on January 19, 2012

      Yay! Thank you everyone. Man... I sure say that a lot.

    18. Creator Philip Tibitoski on January 19, 2012

      Good job dudes. :)

    19. Creator Erik Dahlman on January 19, 2012

      I waited until the last minute, but how could I say no? Great project guys!

    20. Creator The Men Who Wear Many Hats on January 18, 2012

      That's awesome! Thank you!

    21. Creator Marc Eder on January 18, 2012

      I just made the pledge that put you guys over $15,000! Can't wait for this game on the iPhone and iPad! Tried your game out for the first time a few weeks ago on your site. You guys are awesome!

    22. Creator The Men Who Wear Many Hats on January 17, 2012

      Hmmm... maybe if everybody only gets 4 letters we can fit it all. Hah! (just kidding don't reduce your donation amounts!!!)

    23. Creator Vernon Burt on January 17, 2012

      The tombstone database for this game is gonna be huge :) Congrats guys!

    24. Creator The Men Who Wear Many Hats on January 17, 2012

      You get to pick one. Don't worry, the rest will be available. It's all digital so "pre-order" doesn't mean too much.

    25. Creator Mikkel Krongaard Eskildsen on January 17, 2012

      When you donate $20 or more do you have to choose between Iphone, Android, PC or Mac?
      I would be happy if i there was a option to get both a mobile version and a computer version.
      I will go with the Android and PC version and if its on Steam it would be the best!
      Love the website version.

    26. Creator Joséantonio W. Danner on January 15, 2012

      Congrats to The Men Who Owe Many Tombstones!

    27. Creator Richie Donahou on January 14, 2012

      I just wanted to say this is quite rad, and I of course have to as for a WP7 version as well.

    28. Creator Ryan K on January 14, 2012

      Well if you ever consider adding gamepad support in future here is a tutorial to do so: http://developer.sonyericsson.com/wp/2011/02/13/xperia-play-game-keys/ and thanks for the android port! :)

    29. Creator Cristina on January 14, 2012

      The original Oregon Trail blended fun and randomness in a way it was impossible to dislike. I hope Organ Trail follows the same path :)

      I like the fact that this project actually got the necessary funding. I know how hard it is.

    30. Creator The Men Who Wear Many Hats on January 13, 2012

      I sure hope we can make the iOS version universal. I just don't know what exactly that entails yet. So we can't promise it but I want it.

      And as far as gamepad support, Since we don't have an xperia to develop on, I'm not sure if we will be able to deliver that properly. We are redesigning the controls to play with with a touch only interface so hopefully that will be satisfactory.

    31. Creator Ryan K on January 13, 2012

      Could we please have xperia Play gamepad support in the android release?

    32. Creator Thomas Iwancio on January 13, 2012

      Any chance the iOS app will be universal (iPhone and iPad)?

    33. Creator The Men Who Wear Many Hats on January 6, 2012

      For 15k we will make a game about swimming in money. (just kidding (or am I?))

    34. Creator Satheian on January 6, 2012

      Looks like you'll be needing a $10 or $15k goal now..

    35. Creator Tom Ricket on January 6, 2012

      Excellent work, guys. I'm in the same industry ("Inert Soap" -- go check us out!) and know how it can be a total blast to create stuff, but doesn't always pay the bills. So have a bit o' cash from me, and I can't wait for the Director's Cut! :) --Tom

    36. Creator Zachery Gaskins on January 5, 2012

      Considering I just pledged a copy of the game using Amazon Payments, can you check and make sure that this game will be Kindle Fire compatible?

      Awesomeness, btw.

    37. Creator Ron Bassilian and Jim Wheelock on January 4, 2012

      If your soundtrack is half as good as the music on your KS video, you will have sold me on that alone. :)

    38. Creator S. Thomson on January 3, 2012

      Ok, awesome!

    39. Creator The Men Who Wear Many Hats on December 31, 2011

      The android options will just be added to the rewards that already have the preorder option. So no worries. If we cut it close I'll probably just slip it in anyways.

    40. Creator S. Thomson on December 31, 2011

      This sounds awesome!
      I pledged because I wanna get to $5000 so it'll be on Android!! We just change our pledges later when that reward is added, right?

    41. Creator Jordan Petersen on December 27, 2011

      For Android, you tease? Shut up and take more of my monies!!!!!!!

    42. Creator Shawn Michael Recinto on December 27, 2011

      Hey guys,
      Can I ask that one of the random encounters be a Box O Zombies :)

    43. Creator Shawn Michael Recinto on December 22, 2011

      Very neat project guys, As promised, I have donated :)

    44. Creator The Men Who Wear Many Hats on December 22, 2011

      It took me a few hours to figure out what WP7 meant. Haha, I guess we could look into it. But better give us 5k more just in case.

    45. Creator Jay Margalus on December 21, 2011

      You come across an awesome Kickstarter project. Do you: 1. give it money, 2. give it money and tell everyone you know about it!!! I went with 2.

    46. Creator Joey Manso on December 21, 2011

      How much money do you need for the WP7 port?

    47. Creator Philip Tibitoski on December 20, 2011

      Gimme dem trails yo.
