1893: A World's Fair Mystery features over 500 archival photos from the 1893 Columbian Exposition in Chicago, historical characters, and challenging puzzles. Players take on the role of a detective investigating a diamond theft and must match wits with a criminal mastermind. The adventure uses a traditional text interface instead of the now common point-and-click interface, resulting in game play based on literary rather than cinematic conventions. 1893: A World's Fair Mystery was the winner in the Best Setting category at this year's XYZZY Awards for its detailed re-creation of the Columbian Exposition.
