Fogg and Passepartout arrive at Trinity College from London on a phaeton sent by the former professors of Fogg, who studied liberal arts there. Cambridge is his alma mater, and Professor Infrey welcomes him before he sets off on his journey around the globe. Research at the college centres on assembling and operating an experimental gyrodyne. Infrey proposes that Fogg take a gycrocopter on her maiden voyage, creating a monumental start to his wager and potentially drawing attention to Fogg being a Cambridge alumnus, which would 'annoy Oxford terribly'. The copter can be taken to Paris or Kristiania.
The developers of the game, Inkle, are based in Cambridge, and added this location as a personal touch.
Cambridge can only be travelled to from the second playthrough onwards.
A newspaper headline that can be read after travelling on board the gyrocopter talks about Fogg's journey, referring to him as a 'Trinity man' and fulfilling Infrey's hope that the media will pick up on Fogg being a Cambridge alumnus.
