80 Days in 80 Days

It started as a joke but became a plan: racing the game 80 Days in "real time", where each player picks up the game once per day and stops playing once a single in-game day has elapsed. As such, the race will last for (up to) 80 real-world days!

How to Run the Race

Every day, you should play through about one day of in-game time and then send a screenshot of your game state to race@80-days-in-80-days.com. This screenshot should include your position on the world map and all the information on your HUD.

The game should autosave at 10pm every day, so just after 10pm on the current day will often be the best time to take a screenshot and quit out. However, I'll allow any screenshot from between 10pm on the current day and 10pm on the next day.

If the game doesn't save at all for more than one in-game day, let me know in your email and wait to progress further until the real-time day catches up with your game.
