Now accepting legal tender for the ‘90s cross-country comedy crime adventure from Mighty Yell & Skybound Games, launching August 31

LOS ANGELESAug. 11, 2021 — Indie developer Mighty Yell and publisher Skybound Games are excited to announce the ‘90s cross-country adventure game The Big Con is now available for digital pre-order on Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, and available to wishlist on PC Steam with a 10% launch discount on select storefronts. Jump into this comical trip that lets you live out a life of petty theft, sneaking around, and more silly mischief when the game launches on August 31.

But that’s not all — Mighty Yell has just wrapped up the year’s biggest community CONtest to find the perfect stars to voice the game’s 13 powerful words of spoken dialogue, and now they’ve released a new trailer revealing the final in-game voice actors. Which prolific voice actor will deliver a performance of a lifetime in The Big Con?

The Big Con is all about Ali, a teenage con artist trying to save her mom’s video store from unscrupulous loan sharks any way she can. In this colorful adventure filled with punchy puzzles and dialogue, how you make that money is up to you: travel across the country picking pockets and locks, persuading marks, sneaking around in disguises, and even profiting off the latest plushie fad.

The Big Con Features:

  • An irreverent comic adventure game with open-ended situations, puzzles, and exploration.
  • Crime is cool now — sneak, pickpocket, wear disguises, and grift and con anyone you can!
  • Mouth off! Talk your way into deals and out of trouble across the country.
  • Meet a cast of weird ‘90s characters and rip ‘em off (or help them, if that’s your deal).
  • Original theme song from Where in the World Is Carmen Sandiego? house band Rockapella!
  • Call home and argue with your mom!
