The Big Con, Coming This Summer to Xbox Series X|S and Xbox One

The Big Con

Skybound Games to Publish Mighty Yell’s The Big Con, Coming This Summer to Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One & PC

Hustle and grift to save the family business in this ‘90s cross-country crime adventure

Skybound Games announced it 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.


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: pick pockets, 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.

Quote from Dave Proctor, Game Director of Mighty Yell: “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.”

Quote from Ian Howe, Co-CEO of Skybound Games: “The Mighty Yell team’s passion and excitement comes through in every aspect of The Big Con. The game is funny, entertaining and has made all of us at Skybound miss the ‘90s! We are elated to welcome The Big Con into the Skybound Games fold and can’t wait to introduce it to indie game and fellow ‘90s fans later this summer!”

The Big Con is available to wishlist on Steam now. The Big Con has been named an “Official Selection” for Tribeca Games as part of the Tribeca Film Festival, which will take place June 9 – 20.
