History

At some point, a video game known as "Oregon Trail" was created. Based on the picture used on Nora West-Allen's shirt, one could suppose that the game had simple graphics characteristic for early video games. The game's events involved a caravan drawn by oxen and the possibility of deadly diseases, such as dying of dysentery. The game was considered a classic by 2018, beloved by Nora and recognized by Cisco Ramon.[1]

Behind the scenes

  • In real life, The Oregon Trail is indeed a famous educational video game that became a cult classic. The game was designed to show its players all the possible hardships that awaited the American colonists who attempted to travel through the eponymous Oregon Trail, most notably losing oxen and dying of different illnesses like dysentery, which led to the phrase "YOU HAVE DIED OF DYSENTERY" becoming a meme among gamers, and thus a popular t-shirt design.[2]
