Carmen Sandiego's Great Chase Through Time

The Printing Press is the eighth case in the adventure game Carmen Sandiego's Great Chase Through Time.



"You're moving on to Germany in the 1400s, birthplace of mechanical printing. The first edition of a very important book should be on the shelves by now, but it's nowhere to be found. Time for a title search, Time Trooper!

This time, that genial genius Ivan Idea is going along as your Good Guide. Good luck, and don't forget to read the fine print!" -- The Chief

"Way to go! You put the chains on Jane Reaction, mastered the printing press, and got Gutenberg back in the biblical book-making business.

Thanks to you, the printed word will carry the world's wisdom to bookshelves throughout history. Librarians everywhere thank you!

Work like that deserves a reward. Hey, can you handle a promotion? Good! Because now you're a Time Detective! And if you want to try your title on for size, there's another case brewing. Can you start working on it?" -- The Chief
