1893 A World's Fair Mystery is a text based adventure game with a strong educational flavour, and accompanied by dozens of black and white archival photographs. There are hundreds of intricately described locations and the photographs add so much to the experience, illustrating the grand architecture of the many sprawling buildings, and the magnificent boulevards, statues and fountains that comprised the exhibition. Not forgetting the exhibits themselves which include everything from steam engines to rock crushing machines, fire engines, printing presses, looms, telephones and the list goes on and on…The game comprises one CD for both PC and Mac, and this includes an authentic map of Chicago at the time, as well as a Visitors Guide and, of course, the manual in PDF format. Whilst you are playing you can also toggle on and off some music of the period. (From this review).

It seems so if you inspect the creation dates of the files.
