The year is 1872 and your master has set a wager that will see him attempt to circumnavigate the globe in a short 80 days. As his attendant, you will travel alongside and help him complete this mammoth task. First released on Android and Apple devices last year, today sees it arriving on PC with new features and content.
Phileas Fogg is your master to whom you take all efforts to please and keep comfortable. The longer the trip the more it will cost him and the less comfortable he will be. So, with limited funds and limited time you must get around the world.
Set in a steampunk world, this is game is full of charm and delight. Players travel this world of intrigue with many people and by various means, from airships to submarines, steam trains to elephants and boats to hot air balloons.
I have been playing this game on my tablet for quite a while now and learning that there are also new plot-lines, characters and cities (for northern America and North Pole) fills me with excitement. I have played this game multiple times so I can whole heartedly recommend this text based game to people who like their stories rich and varied.
