A Race Across Space to Save Planet Earth!
At the turn of the last century, Phineas Fogg, inventor, philanthropist, and millionaire, decided to turn from steam, the source of all power, to a new form. A mysterious force, found on a moon of Jupiter, that would change the world. A spark to power robotic Mechanicals, make Difference Engines calculate, or run entire cities with its unlimited potential. Fogg kept this discovery a secret, telling only his engineering assistant Maggie Mayfield, and their friend and colleague Prof. MacGuffin.
Now they are ready to unveil their labor to the World in a race to the Moon. But, MacGuffin is murdered, worst than that, their prototype of the new power source stolen. As if he didn't have enough gears to grind, Fogg finds his great invention maligned by James Vaper, the Count of Steam. A wager is set. A journey from Earth to Pluto and back, not requiring the eighteen months that steam would. No, Fogg and Maggie must make the trip in a staggering Eighty Days!
Eighty Days is an imaginative re-telling of Jules Verne's classic "Around the World in Eighty Days."
