This is a very interesting game/concept at the Kickstarter stage that will appeal to American history fans (such as myself).

"... an RPG that combines resource management, exploration, survival and its main characterís inherent melancholy. Thatís the pitch for Meriwether, a game based on the historic Lewis and Clark expedition to the Pacific Coast."

I don't play games so often now, but have tired of dizzy-inducing FPS and want something a bit more sedate and substantial.
