80 Days from inkle Studios is a reimagining of the Jules Verne novel Around the World in Eighty Days. It mixes old-school text adventures, strategic board games and RPGs to create a massive, adaptive interactive story that writes itself around the thousands of choices you make during your journey. 

Become Phileas Fogg’s valet Passepartout as the two of you attempt to circle the globe in eighty days. Will your route take you across Europe, down the coast of Africa, over the North Pole or around the equator?

Choose from various modes of transport, among them submarine, camel, steamer, hot-air balloon and the Orient Express. 80 Days offers 169 distinct cities, numerous side quests and subplots and a variety of supporting characters, making each playthrough unique and unexpected.

This steampunk portrayal of the Victorian Era, written by celebrated interactive fiction author Meg Jayanth, is 12 times longer than the original Jules Verne novel. Any given playthrough will encompass only a small percentage of the game’s total content, giving it tremendous replay value.

Both PC and Mac versions of 80 Days are available from SteamGOG and the Humble Store.

I've been with JA in one capacity or other since 2003. I'm currently website administrator. I'm also a digital artist (my avatar is one of my creations). I write reviews and articles, create graphics and basically help tend the site. It's work I enjoy very much. I love playing games of all kinds, but adventure and RPGs are my favorites (particularly scary/dark/unsettling ones). At the top of my list are The Cat Lady, The Longest Journey, Dreamfall, Still Life (first one only), Scratches and Culpa Innata. I'm a dyed-in-the-wool recluse and prefer the company of animals, hardware and ghosts to human beings (no offense). And no bio would be complete without my saying that I do NOT care for phones of ANY sort. Further, I think Dell computers are garbage and that Microsoft has become megalomaniacal.
