Gold Rush! produced by Sierra On-Line takes place in the mid-nineteenth century in the United States. The main character of the game is Jerrod Wilson, a resident of Brooklyn, New York, who writes articles for a local newspaper. Despite the possibility of promotion, good salary and a settled life, the young man is far from happy. Wilson is worried about his brother, who was forced by the local community years ago to leave Brooklyn Heights. The lack of any news from an only relative does not fill Wilson with optimism. Everything changes in 1848, when the gold rush breaks out in California. The desire to get rich quick causes many Americans to throw everything to hell and head west. The news about the precious metal attracts people like a magnet, although reaching the other coast of the United States is not only difficult, but also very dangerous. Jerrod Wilson is also among those seeking happiness in the west of the country.It is about a brother who, years later, finally gave a sign of life. The player steps into action a few moments before the gold rush breaks out. The letter received from his brother makes Jerrod decide to sell the house and use the money received in this way to pay for the trip to the other coast. Even though Gold Rush! at first glance, it resembles other Sierra On-Line adventures from that period, in fact, the game designed by the MacNeill brothers is a product ahead of its time. I do not mean the audiovisual setting, which brings obvious associations with the first installments of the Leisure Suit Larry or Police Quest series. The difference of this game is mainly due to the fact that it can be completed by choosing one of the three alternative paths, differing in both the locations visited and the puzzles encountered. Gold Rush! it is also unique in that a lot of the game depends on the passing of time.
