OverviewOverview

80 Days is a travel and culture discovery game set in 1872, where decisions about your journey around the world impact the course of the story and characters. You play be deciding where to go next and talking to the people you meet to find the right resources for your journey. It's a globe-hopping adventure that stands out for its steampunk-meets-1872 setting and branching story.

You play Phileas Fogg's loyal valet, Passepartout, and work to balance your master's health, finances and the ever-ticking clock. It's a game about making the right choices in ever more pressing circumstances. You choose which path and means of transport to take from city to city in an effort to get all the way around the world. You can bribe your way onto early departures, trade items for profit, and collect the equipment for the conditions you'll face.

As you progress you discover a widely branching story. The in-game clock that never stops running. Trains, steamers, hot-air balloons, boats, camels, horses and more leave and arrive minute by minute. Every city and journey is narrated via an interactive story where you control every action.

The result is a game with simple visuals and textual story telling that soon becomes a race on a knife edge. Every choice has the ability to speed you up - or lead you into disaster? Get it right and you can uncover the secrets and short-cuts that can shave days off your time. Murder, romance, rebellion and intrigue await.
