Got Game Entertainment today announced that their adventure Conspiracies began shipping to North American stores this week. The game is packaged with both DVD and CD versions in the box.

Entering the world of Nick Delios, a betrayed, jilted and down on his luck private detective, players soon become part of a crime scene investigation. After a spree of boozing and gambling, Nick needs cash and needs it quick. When a police investigator and old friend offers him money to unofficially help solve the murder of a smalltime crook, Nick agrees, not knowing the depth of intrigue and twists lying ahead. In the course of solving this seemingly "simple" case, Nick soon finds himself thrust into a complex web of multiple conspiracies, where nothing is what is seems and, indeed, may lead beyond the very bounds of our planet.

Be sure to check out Adventure Gamers' review of the game.

Imuse Island has interviewed Peter McConnell, the co-composer on LucasArts classics such as Monkey Island 2, Indiana Jones and the Fate of Atlantis and Grim Fandango. Check it out over at Imuse Island.

Monkey Island 2: LeChuck's revenge, was one of the first adventures that did not only use music in some key scenes, but had non-stop music throughout the whole game. It also worked with a lot of themes (e.g. for LeChuck, for Largo, for the Voodoo Lady). What can you tell us about this game?

If I'm not mistaken The Secret of Monkey Island® also had non-stop music, but that was Michael's project, before my time, so to speak. He did a lot of the original themes then: LeChuck, the Voodoo Lady, Guybrush and Governor Marley's love music. Largo's theme is interesting because it's an example of our collaboration: I wrote the "head" of the theme and Michael did the bridge.
