Thanks to Video-fenky for its loving review of allegedly awful PC FMV graphic adventure Conspiracies
, a game that some have compared to classic MST3K
film Final Justice
for its ability to "plumb the depths of lameness"
in an intrigue-filled Mediterranean setting. Apparently, "Conspiracies is the story of Nick Delios, a balding Greek guy in a hoodie who has a living cactus with a face named 'Nionios' and solves crime... it's the year 206X, a world of flying cars and poor dubbing, and Nick... must solve... an alien plot to take over the World Government with android body doubles of top political leaders, starting with Greece first."
The official Conspiracies site
has more info on this soon-to-be-cult title, paradoxically well-received
by JustAdventure, which includes gorgeously random puzzles such as "smuggling a crate full of plastic explosives from outer space so you can stick it inside a bra."
Video-fenky happily concludes: "Overall, Conspiracies is a game no PC adventurer should be without, even if it's for all the wrong reasons."
