About this game

When Rivers Were Trails is an educational 2D adventure game which follows an Anishinaabeg in the 1890’s who is displaced from Fond du Lac in Minnesota to California due to the impact of allotment acts on Indigenous communities. Developed in collaboration with the Indian Land Tenure Foundation and Michigan State University’s Games for Entertainment and Learning Lab thanks to support from the San Manuel Band of Mission Indians.

seems like a good idea and important game, but controls are clunky--you need a big tablet, which I don't have, and they don't have a Linux version available for desktop, so can't play it on my computer either. looks like it is made with unity, so exporting a Linux version is just as easy as windows, wish they would remove that barrier.

I couldn't play, I went through the walkthrough and it just kicked me out and I couldn't go back and open my game. I was really excited after getting a reccomendation after playing The Oregon Trail. It's real sad
