So, more content is planned for Organ Trail: Director’s Cut ($2.99). However, it’s being left up to PC gamers to decide if we’ll ever see the new mechanics, upgrades, routes, and end boss that creator The Men Who Wear Many Hats is currently teasing as a possible update.
Here’s the deal: there’s a PC version of Organ Trail that The Men want to get on Steam, and it’s using Valve’s Greenlight platform to do so. But because the game hasn’t exactly been chewing through the charts, The Men have started dangling possible updates based in order to motivate up-votes. As the game climbs the charts, new content will be added to both the PC and mobile versions of the game.
The studio has the entire scheme, which ends on October 15, outlined on its official web site. The updates sound great, by the way. If Organ Trail hits the top 28, for instance, several new events will be added to the game. Or if it ends up in the top 10, the studio will add in a new boss, more combat stuff, and a new route that’ll take players through the radioactive part of the game’s map.
For the record, we’re not too keen on this. This method of gathering votes comes off as a little gross to us for a variety of reasons, and it’s also weird that the mobile version is getting a chance at new content because of a PC version. On the other hand, this kind of scheme is something people really like to get behind these days, so whatever.
Anyway, Organ Trail on mobile is great. If you haven’t checked it out yet, definitely give it a look. It’s a punitive game, sure, but brilliantly so. You’ll have stories to tell as you adventure through the wastes, too.
