Conspiracy Entertainment announced that it has expanded its publishing agreement with RTL Games for eleven new RTL SKUs scheduled for release in 2008/2009, including the games Winter Sports 2: The Next Challenge and Ski and Shoot on multiple platforms, and will be designed for use on the Wii Balance Board.

Among their 2007 collaborations, the Cologne-based RTL Games selected Conspiracy to launch the popular Nintendo Wii game RTL Winter Sports 2008: The Ultimate Challenge. RTL Winter Sports 2008 was featured for weeks in the Top Ten U.S. Charts of the online portal, and Conspiracy quickly reported receiving large reorders for the game. "We look forward to continuing our previous success story with the upcoming release of 'Winter Sports 2' in the fourth quarter of 2008. This is one of out of eleven popular SKUs we have under agreement with RTL Games. Through partners like RTL Games, Conspiracy expects to continue to assert itself as a key player in the North American gaming market, particularly within the exploding Wii content segment," said Marco Hüsges, EVP of Conspiracy Entertainment.

Sirus Ahmadi, CEO of Conspiracy Entertainment, stated, "RTL Games has a proven history of rolling out the hottest games that capitalize on cutting-edge trends in the industry. Winter Sports 2 and Ski and Shoot will both utilize the Wii Balance Board, a dual-sensor wireless board that can detect the weight and balance of its users. This added feature favorably positions us to fill strong and emerging market demand in the next evolution of the Wii."

Holger Strecker, CEO of RTL Games, said, "This year, we are significantly expanding our product line-up and offering games for various platforms across the Atlantic. We will continue to rely on Conspiracy as a renowned and very flexible partner who will help us sustain our market share and increase sales in the important U.S. market."

Keith Tanaka, CFO of Conspiracy Entertainment, commented, "This deal with RTL Games is just another step we are taking in our efforts to grow the company. Since Winter Sports 2008 was a great success for Conspiracy, it was important for us to secure the rights to the sequel and further strengthen our relationship with RTL Games."
