Where in Time is Carmen Sandiego?
Windows 3

A Carmen Sandiego game released in 1997 as Where in Time is Carmen Sandiego? (a name shared with other entries in the franchise), then later renamed in 1999 by The Learning Company as Carmen Sandiego’s Great Chase Through Time. Unlike other entries in the educational franchise, this entry is a more standard point-and-click adventure with a set storyline, and is also influenced by the 1996-97 PBS game show Where in Time is Carmen Sandiego?, even sharing the same theme song and actress Lynne Thigpen as “The Chief” of ACME. After the titular villain and her V.I.L.E. henchmen steal a time-traveling device to disrupt human history, the player, with the help of five ACME “Good Guides”, must go back in time themselves with a Good Guide to assist them in order to correct important events in history back to how we know it and stop Carmen and her cronies. Over nineteen cases, players will speak to people of the time, including important figures, complete tasks to correct history, find pieces of notes showing where a villain is hiding, then finally arrest the villain. Players can also consult with their Good Guide and a book called a Chronopedia, a historical guide with text and images reviewed and approved by editors of the Encyclopædia Britannica.
