    One of the best story-driven games on PC, 80 Days is beautifully written, effortlessly charming, and thrillingly unpredictable.

    80 Days is a modern take on the choose-your-own adventure novel, with a branching story that spans the entire globe. It's a game that practically demands you play it more than once.

    The game’s direction is also peerless, and the aesthetic choices are just right: bold enough to be obvious on a small screen for tablets, but creative and consistent, furthering the atmosphere. The game is unique and I wish there was more like it, and I expect that, despite the 80 day limit, I will play it over and over, each time discovering a new way around the world.

    A beautifully written, masterfully designed choose-your-own-adventure/Grand Journey yarn, that Verne himself would have been most proud of.

    Storytelling in 80 Days is so rich and polished that this adventure becomes your own. [12/2015, p.65]

    Unlike life-simulator and open-world games, it doesn't presuppose and anticipate your addiction. It simply uplifts.

    80 Days works much better on mobiles – what works on mobile phones may not work on PC. However, the core of the game, consisting in reading interesting text and making decision in hundreds of situations, works tolerably even on PC.

    Let's start by saying I'm a huge fan of Jules Verne books (and actually Jules Verne itself) and this game grasps the very essence of "Le tourLet's start by saying I'm a huge fan of Jules Verne books (and actually Jules Verne itself) and this game grasps the very essence of "Le tour du monde en 80 jours".
    Everything in there it's like it was in the book, just different every time you attempt the travel. There's almost the same suspense when something unforeseen happens and you have to get out of some nasty situation while still looking for your 80 days goal.
    The narration is faster than a book but also kinda slow for a video-game, which I guess was the best compromise.

    Something I didn't like was that most of the graphics in the PC port where upscaled from the iOS version and playing at higher resolution looked kinda bad and that there was no linux port of this game even if it was made in Unity3D with very little graphic elements.
    With proper high-res graphics and a Linux port this game would have got a 9.

    It’s a visual novel mixed with role-playing mixed with Rogue-like meaning each trip will be quite different from the next. It's also all setIt’s a visual novel mixed with role-playing mixed with Rogue-like meaning each trip will be quite different from the next. It's also all set in a Steampunk re-imagining of Jules Verne’s Around the World in Eighty Days (meaning even avid fans of the original novel will have something new to experience here). Expand

    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. I was never a fan of the Verne's books and Around the World in 80 days is no exception, but i still enjoyed this game a lot. My best playthrough happened when i tried to cheat and just walked around the North Pole, it is great that game actually allows you to do so. Expand
