Added DiffLines:

* OneHundredEight: There's a chance that players will reach Day 107, which will take the player's party falling through a spiral of light, eventually sending them into the 21st century where they run into aggressive traffic, followed by the police.

Added DiffLines:

* UnlockableContent: You start with only one type of wagon, while most of the others need to be unlocked by encountering and surviving against certain scenarios, which also unlock survival challenges. Some of the more difficult wagons require you to get 3 stars on all survival challenges and beat the game without losing anyone.


''Super Amazing Wagon Adventure'' is a retro-styled 2D shooter by Sparsevector. Parodying ''VideoGame/TheOregonTrail'', right down to the retro graphics, the game has you controlling a wagon carrying a party of three migrants traveling west while [[EverythingTryingToKillYou Everything Is Trying To Kill Them]].

The main appeal of the game is its highly randomized nature and its comically absurd amount of anachronisms and fantasy elements. Besides having to deal with mundane things like disease, wild animals and fording rivers, you can also find yourself battling machine gun wielding bandits, Bigfoot, rogue satellites, and so on. All this with NintendoHard difficulty but with lots of HaveANiceDeath to lighten the mood.

Currently available on UsefulNotes/{{DESURA}} and [[UsefulNotes/XboxLiveArcade Xbox LIVE Indie Games]], and now on Steam as well.

* CrackFicCrackFic: Thanks to the bizarre nature of this game and being able to give the party different names, it's quite common to see people name the characters after more popular ones to have some really hilarious pairings and misadventures.



* FinalDeath: Once a party member dies, they're gone for good.



* NiceJobBreakingItHero: It has no effect on the game itself, but surviving a trek through a Civil War battlefield by killing everyone has you making the war worse. Whoops!
--> '''Narration''': The wagon's interference in the battle decimated both Union and Confederate forces. The war was lengthened, and there was a great loss of life.
