Bureau 13 is a graphic adventure game developed by Take-Two Interactive Software and published by GameTek for the PC DOS and Windows platforms in 1995. It is based on the role-playing game system Bureau 13 and was created by the authors of Hell: A Cyberpunk Thriller. The Amiga port for the Amiga 1200 and Amiga CD32 was in works in 1995, but was cancelled.
A reviewer for Next Generation commented that "Although in some ways it's a bit basic compared to its competition, Bureau 13 has enough originality to make it worth a second look." He gave it two out of five stars.
Retrospectively, Richard Cobbett of PC Gamer opined "Bureau 13 is a really dumb game with some clever ideas - one of the kind that doesn't actually work, but really should have," having "the clumsiest interfaces ever inflicted on the world, and one of the dullest worlds."
