BEATEN: 80 Days (Android, 2014)

Kickin’ rad Phileas Fogg-em-up from Inkle in which you must successfully travel around the world in 80 days. The twist is that this is an alt-history Victorian world, but one that somehow does steampunk in a non-cringeworthy way.

It’s basically an interactive novella with a smattering of strategy, but it’s beautifully written, looks nice and gets surprisingly tense as the 80 day deadline approaches.

There are a ridiculous number of ways to complete the journey and I feel I’ve barely scratched the surface. Pro-tip, try going around the world via the North Pole.
