Adventure set in the years of the gold rush
In Gold Rush you play a character that has development on his mind; he wants to amass a large amount of wealth and he wants to get his hands on all the gold he can grab. But, of course, traveling is what sets the wannabes and the ones that truly make it apart. In Gold Rush you get a really well organized and cool transportation kind of game. You will be traveling on air, on land and you will look to uncover a whole load of mysteries, getting everything you want to get. The AGI engine is used in this one too, that was used extensively in Sierra's adventure games. But in this particular game the engine has received some well deserved improvements, and so control is easier. Plus, graphically, the game has a lot more to show for itself, in terms of quality and in terms of the art direction and production value. Furthermore, Gold Rush allows you to get into a really nice head space, as it transports you in a time period where a whole lot was put on the line to make it. Just like in The Oregon Trail, random misfortunes offer you the chance to see the hardships of life and for the most part, the game is all about survival. Definitely a cool game, worth looking into if you enjoy survival sims with a gold rush vein running through it!
