Historical References.

In the game, Jeremiah Fink paid his employees in company scrip - a common practice where employees could only buy from company stores. True to historical records, Fink followed the practice of raising prices in company stores without providing raises in order to recoup labor costs.

Music

The music played whilst the game is loading is 'Solace - Mexican Serenade' by Scott Joplin who lived at the time of Columbia.
