As stated on the credits section, Conspirator was inspired by Mafia, a social deduction game designed by Dmitry Davidoff in 1986.

There are two main differences between Conspirator and Mafia/Werewolf:

1. The theme. In Conspirator, you play as a Citizen in a Renaissance kingdom that Conspirators are trying to destroy. Characters take appropriate names, and the general language of the game reflects this setting.

2. The characters. More specifically, there’s a character that changes everything about the flow and strategy of the game: the Monarch. Instead of everyone voting on who to “lynch,” the Monarch has absolute power to “condemn” whoever he believes is a Conspirator.

In practice, the game plays a lot different than Mafia/Werewolf, since the Monarch can make the Kingdom win or lose depending on his rule. Essentially, it’s a different take on mob mentality since there’s a leader in place.

There are other differences (such as the design of the cards, the introduction of other unique characters, and some variations on rules), but these two change the experience the most.
