Mata Hari, the iconic Dutch dancer, seductress and spy makes her way to the PC in a 3D adventure game set during 1910.

Publisher Mamba Games is targeting point and click players and fans of adventure titles with a story of power battles, espionage, love and betrayal, as well as giving them the challenge of preventing Mata’s imminent execution.

The game promises hours of puzzles, dozens of atmospheric 3D locations the ability to charm others into revealing military secrets.

It begins with Mata Hari performing dances at lavish parties and attracting numerous political leaders, but soon spirals into a world of secrecy after the Swiss secret agent Oscar Samsonet hires her as a spy.

Mata soon finds herself caught up in the arms race between the Entente and the Mittelmachte, with the first World War looming on the horizon.

There is a selection of spy mini-games to confuse Mata Hari’s pursuers, including exotic dancing sequences where the player must follow the beat by moving the mouse cursor into musical notes at the right time.

As players lead the life of famous Mata Hari across Europe and the Belle Epoque, their level of skill is tested and recorded, ultimately determining which ending the gamer unlocks.

The game has been developed by Cranberry Production with the help of experienced designers Hal Barwood and Noah Falstein, who have worked on a number of classic adventure titles including 1992’s Indiana Jones and the Fate of Atlantis on the PC.
