''Indiana Jones and the Infernal Machine'' is a 3D action-platformer game based on the ''Franchise/IndianaJones'' film series, developed for the {{PC}} by Creator/LucasArts and published in November 1999. Ports were subsequently developed by Factor 5 and [=HotGen=] for the UsefulNotes/Nintendo64 and UsefulNotes/GameBoyColor respectively.

Indiana Jones is hard at work in Utah, doing some archaeology [[RealityEnsues (and not finding a lot)]] when old flame [[Videogame/IndianaJonesAndTheFateOfAtlantis Sophia Hapgood]] drops in on him to elicit his help investigating a strange machine part and [[DirtyCommunists Russian activity]] in Babylon. Soon Indy finds himself travelling to the four corners of the earth in search of more machine parts, before the Russians do something everybody's going to regret.

!!''Indiana Jones and the Infernal Machine'' provides examples of:

* AbnormalAmmo: The easter egg cheat makes your bazooka fire rubber chickens.
* AllTheWorldsAreAStage: There are sections of the Aetherium that revisit past locations, and items found there are used in the boss fight.
* BaitAndSwitchGunshot: Turner is introduced this way, courtesy of an unfortunate mook.
* BigBadEnsemble: [[DirtyCommunists Volodnikov]], [[spoiler:[[GeneralRipper Turner]]]], and [[SufficientlyAdvancedAliens Marduk]].
* BookWorm: Volodnikov, according to Turner. Later proven right when Indy discovers an elevator under the ruins of Babylon, confirming Turner's claims.
* BrickJoke: The climax of the Return To Peru level. Indy retrieves an incredibly more valuable and ornated golden idol, much like the one René Belloq stole from him. Due to how elaborate its traps were this time, it is suspected Belloq's idol might have been nothing but a decoy.
* CallBack: The secret level, Return to Peru, is [[Main/ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin exactly what it means]]. Indy returns to the location where [[Film/RaidersOfTheLostArk the first movie began]]. Also serves as [[Main/BookEnds Book Ends]], if and only if the player didn't purchase the Secret Map; in which case, the level will take place after the end, and will feature closing credits.
** The cheat codes for the game require you to pair up the parts of the eponymous machine with Indy's previous love interests: Urgon_[[Film/IndianaJonesAndTheLastCrusade Elsa]], Taklit_[[Film/RaidersOfTheLostArk Marion]], Azerim_[[Videogame/IndianaJonesAndTheFateOfAtlantis Sophia]] and Nub_[[Film/IndianaJonesAndTheTempleOfDoom Willie]].
* CharacterNameAndTheNounPhrase
* ChaseScene: Indy chasing after Volodnikov in a Benny Hill-esque fashion in the Nub's Tomb level, much like chasing a chicken. Blocking a path with a mid-sized statue [[Main/TooDumbToLive is all it takes]] to trap Volodnikov.
* DirtyCommunists: These play the role of the Nazis, years before [[Film/IndianaJonesAndTheKingdomOfTheCrystalSkull the fourth movie]].
* EasilyForgiven: [[spoiler:Volodnikov. Indy doesn't seem to have too many objections to him sending hordes of mooks to kill him in the end, and they all go out for vodka after Indy (truthfully) denies meeting God in the Aetherium.]]
* EternalEngine: The Infernal Machine.
* FinalBossNewDimension: The Marduk fight takes place in his home dimension, the Aetherium.
* TheForties: The game takes place in 1947.
* FusionDance: [[spoiler:Marduk's OneWingedAngel form is this, when he possesses Sophia for the final confrontation.]]
* HeelFaceTurn: [[spoiler:Volodnikov, to some extent. He lets Indy go and cancels his search after Marduk once he realizes how dangerous the outcome is.]]
** [[spoiler:It appears to be less that and more that Volodnikov never actually intended to use the Machine.]]
* HyperspaceArsenal: At the same time, Indy can be carrying his whip, three different sidearms, two rifles, a shotgun, a machete, [[StuffBlowingUp grenades, satchel charges, and a bazooka]].
%%* JungleJapes: Peru.
* LethalLavaLand: The second and third Philippines levels.
* MinecartMadness: King Solomon's Mines.
* MyCountryRightOrWrong: [[spoiler:Sophia Hapgood. Forced to betray Jones under Turner's orders, something she doesn't feel particularly guilty about.]]
* NoGearLevel: The V.I. Pudovkin, where Indy is captured by the Soviets after gaining the third part and is stripped of all his gear and imprisoned.
* ObviousBeta: The N64 version. One of the most memorable glitches had to be the fact that in one level, when you tried to drop into a cave since access seemed impossible, when Indy fell in the water and you tried to resurface, he just swam through the air. Effective for getting in the cave, but he just drowned.
* PalmtreePanic: The first Philippines level.
* PlotHole: Marduk, in and out. His hostile behavior, incentive, and desire to lure the Babylonians into building a portal for him to invade Earth, a realm whose atmosphere is lethal to him, are never explained nor justified.
* RealityEnsues: The first level features some astonishingly accurate archaeology, in which all Indy digs up is a few potsherds.
%%* ShiftingSandLand: Meroë.
%%* ShipLevel: The V.I. Pudovkin.
* ShoutOut: In a final-level EasterEgg where Indy inexplicably turns into [[Videogame/MonkeyIsland Guybrush Threepwood]].
%%* SlippySlideyIceWorld: Kazakhstan.
* {{Sufficiently Advanced Alien}}s: Heavily implied with Marduk, who lives in another dimension that can be accessed by portal (also years before [[Film/IndianaJonesAndTheKingdomOfTheCrystalSkull the fourth movie]]).
* TempleOfDoom: Teotihuacan and Olmec Valley.
