Skybound Games will publish developer Mighty Yell’s teenage grifting adventure game The Big Con. A classic coming-of-age story steeped in the nostalgic humor and flair of the ‘90s, The Big Con will debut later this summer on Xbox Series X|S and Xbox One, as well as for PC on Steam. Check out the trailer below:
The Big Con stars Ali, a teenage con artist out to save her mom’s video store from unscrupulous loan sharks any way she can. In this open-ended adventure with punchy puzzles and dialogue, how players make that money is in their hands: pickpockets, pick locks, persuade marks, pilfer prizes, sneak around in disguises, and even profit off the latest plushie fad. From the visuals to the writing, The Big Con is a fun and hilarious trip back in time to an age that is farther away now than some of us would care to admit.
The Big Con Features:
- A comical narrative adventure game with open-ended situations, puzzles, and exploration.
- Live the grift! Pickpocket, sneak, wear disguises, and con anyone you can.
- Talk your way into deals and out of trouble.
- Meet a weird cast of ‘90s characters, then rip ‘em off, or help them (if you feel like it).
- Call home and argue with your mom.
“Making The Big Con has been an absolute blast. It’s really been an incredible experience for our team that while trying to make our players laugh, we have made each other laugh just as much. I’m really excited for more people to get their hands on the game; to see this wild, rad trip into the 90’s we’ve created and hopefully have some fun (and maybe some feelings) along the way.”
Dave Proctor – Game Director of Mighty Yell
