The 1893 World's Fair Mystery
March 19, 2003 5:34 PM   Subscribe

The 1893 World's Fair has been recreated in loving detail by Peter Nepstad of The Illuminated Lantern, in his game 1893: A World's Fair Mystery. The reviews are in, and they're mostly positive, no small surprise considering it's a text adventure.

Amazing, Mr.Crash - thanks! Methinks "text adventures", from what I can gather, are just right for people like me - finally we stone-agers know what's going on and can criticize! ;)

Spectacular, crash! I've been mad (mad, I tells ya!) for the Columbian Exposition for years, so I anticipate a lot of fun (and much needed distraction that doesn't involve whiskey alone) from this. Thanks so much!
