Pick the century

A challenge for readers of this blog. Have a look at the game below and decide which century it was played in (or which century it belongs to). I have of course removed anything that identifies the players, or where it might have been played.

White - Black [C37]
From a galaxy far far away

Given the rather premature resignation, I'd guess a modern correspondence game?

All of White's moves after the opening are endorsed by Stockfish, so I'd guess the 21st, and possibly online.

I agree with Anon at 11.04. Another curiosity is that my screen does not show the white knights which makes it a semi-blindfold game.

Update: The white knights are back in their stables!
