December Daily - Day 09 - 80 Days

I'm sick today.
I went to work and lasted an hour.
I just felt nauseous and dizzy.
It's probably related to lack of water... but hopefully it's just a cold or something.
I've spent the last couple of hours in front go the TV playing 80 Days on my iPhone.
It's a steampunk choose your own adventure game, passed on Around The World In 80 Days.
It was a great game. It did have a lot of text... I did a TL;DR version, where I just skipped most of the text (I probably missed most of the story)
You play as Passepartout, and your job is to successfully get Fogg around the world in 80 Days, without killing him (Fogg, not yourself) and losing all your money.
There are heaps of different outcomes... it's fabulous... I got proposed to in Sweden (then robbed), arrested in Russia, and kissed a male mardi gras participant in New Orleans! (which according to my itinerary.... was Death!) I finished my first journey in 67 days!
I can't wait to play again and head down a different route. I can see multiple play-throughs of this game!
If you have a chance to play this game, give it a go! It's available on the Apple Store, and will be available for Android soon!
What a wonderful way to spend a sick day! Now I wish I would feel better!!
