80 days

Hey all!

We wanted to stop by and let you know our new interactive fiction game 80 DAYS which will be out Thursday 24th July.



80 DAYS is a massively-branching, multiplayer, real-time, strategy-based interactive fiction, built from the same engine as our Sorcery! series.

Set in a steampunk'd 1872, you take the role of Passepartout, valet to Phileas Fogg, as he sets off to circumnavigate the world in 80 Days or less by steamer, camel, hot-air balloon, gyrocopter, submarine, mechanical shovel, Orient Express, airship, horse-back, sail-boat, paddle-steamer....

With over 150 cities to explore across a 3D globe, and with a built-in live feed so you can race against other players in real-time, the game is massive, gorgeous, and has almost killed us in making it.

We hope you enjoy it!

cheers
jon and the inkle team

Screenshots!

Racing other players around the world:



Visiting cities - this shot taken just after sunrise:



Talking to characters to learn about where to go, what to look out for, and what to avoid:



Travelling:



And of course, making choices in the story - 80 DAYS is our largest and most complex interactive narrative yet with hundreds of people to meet, things to do, and scrapes to get into:



cheers!

Thanks! This one's been a real labour of love. It's going to be awesome watching people play, too; we don't actually know what the fastest possible time around the world is but with the live feed we should be able to watch it happen!

Amazing graphics!
Reminded me a little bit of Carmen Sandiego.

Hey, Joe here, also from inkle!

Price will be $4.99 / €3.99 / 2.99 (Tier 5), with no in-app purchases.

Just took this snapshot of a slightly-hacked version of the game to show all the routes that you can take - each one has unique content!

Don't worry, we are definitely doing more Sorcery! Part 3 is about halfway written and we've got a couple of awesome new features up our sleeves.
