Your 80 Days start now
The game begins on a Tuesday morning in London. You will start with $4,000 and a choice of where to travel next. There are a few interesting things that stick out from the start of the game. The first thing you notice is that the time under Day 1 doesn’t stop moving while you are playing. As a new player I had to read a lot of dialogue and tips while starting. By the time I decided on where I would go next my first day was almost over.
I decided my first trip would be from London to Paris so I packed my suitcase and headed off. There are a few things you need to worry about in this game. The first concern is the need to carry suitcases for trade items and personal use. Having too many suitcases can be a problem on certain forms of transportation. You will also need to keep an eye on your health while you travel around the world. You start with 100 health but it will quickly deteriorate if you choose cheap transportation.
The dialogue in this game is my favorite part and your choices of interaction really matter. You will have a lot of fun interactions where you can try to save money. You will also have interactions where you are put into moral dilemmas. Much of the dialogue seems to repeat from play through to play through but there are some changes. There is a small chance that your train will be robbed or you will have a mutineer on a boat. These events can cause you quite the hardships along the way.
The biggest part of this game is planning a route and trying your best to stick to it. You will have to choose between your money, health, or suitcases in order to be a success. Choose a route where you can attempt to make it through with one suitcase and cheap transportation. You may also want to carry many suitcases and pay a bit more for future profits. Many of your items you find or buy will sell for a lot in certain places. If you have your trip planned well you can buy exactly what you will need down the road.
