Random Seeds are a game mechanic in 80 Days. They affect various aspects of the game, making each playthrough more varied. Each time you restart the game the seed is increased by one. After playthrough number VIII, it wraps back to I. The current seed is visible in the options menu.
The seed affects:
- the conversation Passepartout and Phileas Fogg have upon departure from London.
- items available in the market
- prices of items in the market and the places where they are valuable
- departure and arrival times
- journey costs
The seed does not affect:
- available routes
- number of suitcases allowed
- health damage taken during journeys
Each seed bears a title, visible from the menu.
