Does Zynga Plan to Travel Down the Oregon Trail?

Wed, Feb 3, 2010

Facebook, Social

Sources close to Games.com have left many wondering whether or not one of Zynga’s upcoming Facebook games could be a revitalization of the Oregon Trail games we all knew and loved as kids (well, except maybe for the dying of dysentery part – that wasn’t so fun).

At the end of last year, it was revealed that the company behind the smash hits FarmVille and Mafia Wars (among others) had trademarked a list of potential game titles including FrontierVille, Frontier World, and just Frontier, so it is looking more and more likely that a virtual trip out west will be accompanying the company’s real life expansion to Hollywood.

Other trademarks were filed for names like CrimeVille, Zoo City and TreasureVille, but I have to admit that this potential nod back to the gaming days of my youth has me most interested. How about you guys?
