Seth MacFarlane‘s A Million Ways To Die In The West is a comedy of epic proportions, and to help promote the new film, Universal Pictures and Adult Swim have teamed up and released the brand new (and very humble) 8-Bit game Trail To The Old Stump.
Old school gamers fond of the survival elementary computer game Oregon Trail, will start to see a resemblance between the two games, only thing is, Trail To The Old Stump has that MacFarlane and Adult Swim potty humor twist. Hit the jump for more info.
Just like the Oregon Trail game, you must spend your money on cart parts, bullets, food, medicine, and considering you are herding cattle across the country, you must spend money on sheep. Along the way you will encounter food shortages, storms, dangerous rivers, and dysentery. So to combat all of that you will need to have plenty of bullets to hunt, cart parts to repair, etc.
You can also connect to your Facebook page and choose five of your friends to join you on your journey. Sharing your travels with your Facebook friends after certain events, like death, is also an option.
The game can be found on the Adult Swim page.
A Million Ways To Die In The West opens in theaters on May 30.
Seth MacFarlane directs, produces, co-writes and plays the role of the cowardly sheep farmer Albert in A Million Ways to Die in the West. After Albert backs out of a gunfight, his fickle girlfriend leaves him for another man. When a mysterious and beautiful woman rides into town, she helps him find his courage and they begin to fall in love. But when her husband, a notorious outlaw, arrives seeking revenge, the farmer must put his newfound courage to the test.
Starring alongside MacFarlane are Oscar® winner Charlize Theron, Amanda Seyfried, Giovanni Ribisi, Neil Patrick Harris, Sarah Silverman and Liam Neeson. MacFarlane reunites many of the filmmakers behind Universal and MRC’s hit film Ted including Scott Stuber (Bluegrass Films) and Jason Clark who produce, and Wellesley Wild and Alec Sulkin who co-wrote the script.
