Guess which two classic blasts from the past are about to get resurrected as Facebook games? Don’t look up there at the title! Okay, go ahead. Too late.

The Oregon Trail and Where in the World is Carmen Sandiego? are set to make their return to the edutainment world as Facebook games. The Oregon Trail will be available tomorrow, February 2nd, with Carmen following a week later on February 9th.

Both the Learning Company, which owns the two franchises, and the games’ developer, Blue Fang, are located here in the Boston area where I live and they were generous enough to supply me with some unreleased gameplay footage after I met with them yesterday. Check it out in the above video.
