A theft on the fairgrounds! Precious diamonds stolen from the Kimberly Diamond Mining Exhibit! An urgent telegram from your old partner arrives, requesting your help to solve the mystery. How can you refuse? And besides, you've been dying to see the wonder of the age everyone has been talking about, this Columbian Exposition. And so, dossier in hand, you take the next train to Chicago. But this is no simple theft. And as theft turns to kidnapping, and kidnapping to murder, you find yourself at the center of a plot the extent of which you can only begin to imagine... 1893: A WORLD'S FAIR MYSTERY is an interactive adventure into Chicago history. It uses a text interface and still photos to bring the fair "vividly to life," and "proves convincingly that the best games aren't about razzle-dazzle special effects or cheap gimmickry. They're about story, character, and especially here, location, location, location" (The Associated Press). "Excellent," says the Chicago Sun-Times, and Game Chronicles Magazine calls 1893 a "breath of fresh air." Nominated for Best Game of the year and winner of Best Setting at the 7th Annual XYZZY Awards. Here are just some of the 1893: A World's Fair Mystery game features: - Hundreds of locations on the fairgrounds to explore, as if you were really there - Over 500 archival photographs illustrate the places you go and the people you meet - Dozens of interactive characters to encounter - Carefully researched and historically accurate - Non-linear gameplay -- you control where you want to go and when - Challenging and unique puzzles - In-game hint system - Over thirty hours of gameplay
