    CHANGE THE COURSE OF HISTORY!

    It is August 1991, only a few days before the political uprising which effectively marked the end of Mikhail Gorbachev's power and the collapse of the USSR. Hardliners and reformers are vying for power and glory in the Soviet political police - the KGB.

    Maksim Mikhailovich Rukov is right at the heart of the struggle. From a military post in the middle of Siberia, Comrade Rukov has been transferred to the KGB's recently-formed Department P - for reasons he doesn't need to know. His brief: to investigate cases of corruption inside the KGB itself.

    As Rukov begins to tug at the sordid fabric of Soviet political and criminal life, he exposes one terrible secret after another. How he faces the challenges ahead will determine his success: it could prove the difference between a new age of democracy... or a new reign of repression.

Sold Out Budget Release - DOS (UK):

    CONSPIRACY

    The KGB or Committee for State Security was the most feared and pervasive intelligence gathering network in the world. It literally controlled the lives of Soviet citizens from the cradle to the grave. The player is cast as GRU captain Miksim Rukov, who has been mysteriously transferred to Department P of the KGB Second Directorate in Moscow.

    Department P was founded in Perestroika's heyday. Its function was to investigate possible cases of KGB corruption. As the player sets out to discover the murderer of private detective Golitsin, the stench of treachery and deceit becomes more and more overpowering. Who can he trust? His dead father - Donald Sutherland is digitised with video and sound and placed in Conspiracy's extensive help system for use throughout the game.

Back of Box - DOS (US):
    It's your first day at Department P, Moscow KGB and you can't help but think that whoever arranged for your transfer here either has a strange sense of humor or hates your guts.

    The KGB is still the most feared and pervasive intelligence-gathering network in the world. But now, the KGB itself is under secret surveillance - by you.

    Your superior at Department P in Moscow has just given you your first assignment: find out who murdered private detective Golitsin and why.

    This is just the first of his attempts to test your loyalty to the hardliners. But - who can you trust? - your Uncle Vanya, who seems to know more about the grisly murder of your parents than he is letting on?
    Or your superiors, whose own hidden agendas might even include the overthrow of Gorbachev?

    Questions lead to more questions but one think is clear - the KGB reeks of corruption and you're about as save as a long-tailed cat in a room full of rocking chairs. Be advised, comrade - you must act quickly and shrewdly to uncover the conspirators before they uncover you.

    Features:
    - Movie-like storyline filled with surprising twists and intrigue
    - Intuitive Icon-based Interface - that means no more wading through menu after men - just "POINT" and "CLICK"
    - VCR-style "REWIND" option for keeping track of important clues and information.
