A game about eating your way across a fantasy world, sampling all the strange dishes offered by the finest taverns in each town you visit.

Also a strange little toy that generates logs of your travels with unexpected opinions and "insights" about the world. This is meant to be both a fun (and funny) little souvenir of each run through the game but also as a record of what sorts of foods, jobs, and items you found in each town.

Since the world stays the same between games you should be able to use these travel logs as guidance for where to go in future runs.

The Finest Taverns is still in development, but an early version should be available to play... soon?

A fascinating cabbage dish

The early access version of The Finest Taverns is now live on Itch.io!

Play in Early Access now!

You should expect to run into some rough edges and maybe a few bugs, but you can play through the entire 80 day fantasy tavern-crawl experience now.

The Finest Taverns is an online, free-to-play game about exploring a fantasy world by going on an 80-day tavern crawl. Your goal is to try as many different foods in as many different towns and cities as possible.

You'll need to manage your time and itinerary as you go, taking in to account a handful of limitations:

Some odd jobs

Food costs money! Sometimes you'll have to stop along the way and pick up some odd jobs to earn extra cash.

Alas, The Noble Pan is closed

But work takes time... and some taverns are only open at certain hours of the day; so make sure to schedule some eating between those jobs.

I don't think I have a haircloth mask!

Fancy taverns expect fancy people: the best taverns have dress codes, so you'll have to find a shop somewhere in the world that sells the kind of clothing you need to be wearing to enter these bastions of haute cuisine.

Of course, clothes cost money too, so back to those odd jobs; you'll also need to manage your skills (by eating the right foods, naturally) in order to pick up the best work and earn the most money.

Hm... where to next?

At the end of the journey it will all be worth it though: you'll have had an amazing adventure and written a delightful journal chronicling your travels.

Notes on a dessert

...And since the world remains the same from game to game, you might just find those journals useful in planning your next trip!
