Hopkins FBI is a 1998 point-and-click adventure game from MP Entertainment, most famous for very large (at the time) amounts of gore.[1][2]

Players assume the role of FBI agent Hopkins, who is on the trail of a criminal mastermind named Bernie Berckson. The pursuit takes the player through a variety of locations, including the FBI headquarters in a modern fictional city, a tropical island, and a submarine base.

The game's highly stylized artwork was created by cartoonists, among them French artist Thierry Ségur.[3]

PolyEx Software, Inc. first released it for OS/2 Warp. The OS/2 beta release was in French. The small OS/2 market share necessitated cross platform development.

The game is known to be one of the first commercial games to be available for Linux, alongside the ports of Doom, Quake and Quake II by id Software, Abuse by Crack dot com, Inner Worlds, and Loki Software's first port, Civilization: Call to Power, which was released in 1999.

The soundtrack of the game included licensed songs from the 60's rock band The Troggs ("I Can't Control Myself" and "Lost Girl"), Rare Earth ("Feelin' Alright") and an original game score.[4]
