As befits a game about a historically-renowned spy, Mata Hari has quietly begun sneaking into North American stores.
Mata Hari marks the long-awaited return of designers Hal Barwood and Noah Falstein (of Indiana Jones and the Fate of Atlantis fame), casting players in the titular role of the exotic dancer-turned-spy. As the spectre of World War I looms ever closer, the Dutch seductress uncovers some highly sensitive military secrets and finds herself in the center of a vast conspiracy, playing a pivotal role on Europe’s political landscape at a particularly crucial time.
Along with the traditional adventure conventions, Mata Hari features a variety of key minigames and introduces a three-tiered inventory system that includes objects, conversation topics, and ideas that need to be realized before use.

Mata Hari (not to be confused with the Frogwares' casual adventure Secret Missions: Mata Hari and the Kaiser's Submarines) is available now at most major retailers for a cost of $19.99.
