The Big Con (insert your disgruntled customer comments here) is an upcoming adventure title heading to PC and the Xboxeseseses this Summer, just for you. All you need to do is send $5 to…

Nah, it’s not that type of con. Instead, it’s a game about the ‘hustle and grift’ needed to save a family business. A just one, then. A game from Mighty Yell and Skybound Games (Before Your Eyes), this is a coming-of-age story with a 90s flair – YES!

You play Ali, the teenager, who has to save her mum’s video store. Remember those? I used to work in one. Make a note of it. It’s an open-ended adventure, which means plenty of puzzles and dialogue to keep the veteran adventurers at bay. I have to say, I’m looking forward to this one.

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.
