The Mata Nui Online Game is a first-person point-and-click adventure game developed using Flash by Templar Studios and released by The LEGO Group on the website BIONICLE.com to promote their Bionicle line of "constraction" building models, then part of the Technic product line.
The original version of the Mata Nui Online Game, then known as the Mata Nui Adventure Game or Mata Nui: The Online Game, was an online-only game playable through a browser originally released in nine installments over the course of 2001. The version provided here was a downloadable copy released by The LEGO Group in 2006 with several changes from the original game: the player character has the backpack and lightstone from the beginning, certain terms are replaced here to reflect changes in Bionicle's story, an early cutscene does not trigger but can be viewed from the main menu, and so on. Also included is the walkthrough written by Mark Durham from the perspective of the player character, Takua. This version was removed from the BIONICLE.com website in 2009; a re-release with differing alterations is currently (as of December 2018) available on the Templar Studios' website since 2013 at http://www.templar.com/games/mnog/Player.html.
