Gearbox Software developed the game for Microsoft Windows, which Aspyr later ported to Mac OS X.

James Bond is then sent to the Austrian Alps to investigate a stolen microchip developed by the United States for space-based air missile defense platforms. His destination in Austria is the castle of Raphael Drake, the head of Phoenix International, which is allegedly a greenhouse organization which disarms nuclear weapons.
