|“||I thought it so marvellous at the time, but how many marvels were still to come!||”|
On the first playthrough of the game, Passepartout and Phileas Fogg nearly miss the Express but catch it at the last moment. Then, Passepartout marvels at the submarine-train hybrid technology of the invention. Subsequent playthroughs abbreviate this experience for the player's convenience.
Every second playthrough, Passepartout settles in his compartment when he hears a cry from the corridor outside. He can ignore it pointedly, or investigate to meet a young man who has lost his Silver-Plated Cigarette Case. The two are unable to track down the robber. Upon disembarking, the man reveals that a single black rose was left in the place of his case- he has been robbed by the Black Rose, a renowned thief. The Black Rose Mystery begins here.
