Have you ever wanted to run away and live a life of crime in the 90s? Well now is your chance with Mighty Yell’s new game, The Big Con. This is the first title to come out of Toronto Studio and is published by Skybound Games which recently made headlines for its brand new experimental title, called In front of your eyes. The Big Con is coming to multiple platforms this summer.

The Big Con follows Ali, a high school student, as she tries to take a road trip across the country to save her family’s video game store from loan sharks. On her journey across America, she will have to resort to pick-pocketing and break-ins to survive. To help him, she’ll don a plethora of costumes and use her charisma to navigate business and get out of sketchy situations while keeping her mother in the dark. Players can choose who they think deserves to be cheated or who they want to help.
However, one of the things that stands out the most The Big Con is the oversaturated art style, reminiscent of old VHS tapes from the 90s. The publisher, Skybound Games, emphasized the importance of nostalgia in the making and experience of The Big Con.
The game is funny, entertaining, and made us all miss the 90s at Skybound! We are delighted to welcome The Big Con in the fold of Skybound Games and can’t wait to introduce it to indie game and other ’90s fans later this summer!
The Big Con is slated for release this summer on Xbox One, Xbox Series X / S, and PC via Steam.
