ROLE Narrative Designer/Writer
Based on the classic license from The Learning Company, The Oregon Trail: American Settler is a tycoon game that takes players beyond the trail and has them creating a new town of their own.
CHALLENGE: FOLLOWING THE TRAIL SET BEFORE ME
The Oregon Trail: American Settler had already been released, and I was responsible for all subsequent content updates and live op events, which included adding new storylines, items, and quests. This meant staying true to the writing style, characters, and storylines already established in the game, all while continuing to write in the pseudo-Southern drawl in which the characters spoke (no easy feat!). I also continued to develop the characters' backstories as they fit with the new themed, monthly content.
