Only use safe NYC locations to travel backwards, do not leave Manhattan, except for trips to Coney Island. Hints from correct characters in later parts of the game will help lead you back to Norumbega. Warning, most characters in each location will lead you to some underbelly of NYC, so prepare to fail miserably. To keep losing players interested, historic dark humor will spice up the dead ends. Some players may enjoy dying more than progressing in the game, so a plethora of gruesome dead ends await you.
