Description

Pack your wagons, find your ride-or-(literally) die friends, and roll up to Matt’s General Store with a sack of cash, it’s time to hit the Oregon Trail, twenty-first-century style!

And Then You Die of Dysentery is the perfect send-up to the sometimes frustrating, always entertaining, and universally beloved Oregon Trail computer game. Featuring a four-colour design in the game’s iconic 8-bit format, alongside pop culture references galore, the book offers 50 humorous, snarky lessons gleaned from the game’s most iconic moments, including gems such as:

  • Suffering from exhaustion is a real thing. (It’s not just PR code for why a celebrity went to rehab.)

  • If you hunt too frequently in one area, game will become scarce. (The first signs of gentrification!)

  • Invite your sweetie to cuddle with you while looking up at the stars. (The night sky was the original Netflix & Chill. Step 1: Loosen up Orion’s belt…)

With its laugh-out-loud commentary and its absurdist nostalgia, …And Then You Die of Dysentery is the ultimate trip down memory lane … all the way to the Willamette Valley.
