Set in an alternate-history version of Jules Verne’s Victorian era, 80 Days sends players on a real-time race around an ever changing, often surprising steampunk world. Playing as Phileas Fogg’s French valet Passepartout, you must use strategy and cunning to help your employer win a hefty bet. Choose your route, manage your finances, and lose yourself in an epic, branching adventure as you attempt to circumnavigate the globe in only 80 days — or faster! Stylishly illustrated with art deco-inspired graphics and situated on a lush 3D globe, the game plays out beneath a non-stop clock, the sun rising and setting as you explore cities, visit markets, talk to people, tend to Fogg’s well-being, and execute each stage of your epic journey.
Spinning off from Verne’s 1873 novel Around the World in 80 Days, writer Meg Jayanth has crafted a huge, dynamic world out of branching stories that have outcomes determined by the player’s decisions. Just in time for the holidays, the new arctic expedition offers the globe-trotting Fogg and Passepartout an enticing shortcut through the North Pole — but the unforgiving landscape makes for a treacherous course, and players will find that certain choices result in 80 Days’ most unexpected consequences yet.
