Skybound Games to publish The Big Con, coming to Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One and PC this summer

Skybound Games have today announced that they'll be taking over the publishing duties for developer Mighty Yell's grifting adventure The Big Con. A coming of age journey steeped in 90's nostalgia, The Big Con will be heading to Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One and PC this summer.


Starring Ali who is a teenage grifter on a mission to save her mums video store from the nasty loan sharks. The game will feature puzzles and dialogue in their quest to con people out of their cash. You'll be able to pick pockets, pick locks, persuade marks into handing over the cash and even profit off the latest plushie fad, amongst others. From the distinct visuals to the throwback writing, The Big Con aims to be a hilarious and riotous trip back to a time a lot of us unfortunately have to admit is farther away than we'd like (God, I miss the 90's)
