Teen crime adventure game set in the 1990s, The Big Con, is coming to PC, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X|S on August 31, 2021.
The game takes cues from 90’s pop culture such as Saved by the Bell, and those weird squiggly colorful backgrounds that used to be plastered over all sorts of media.
The Big Con is developed by independent studio, Mighty Yell, and is published by Skybound Games. While none of the voice actors featured in the video above are going to be in the actual game, people in the U.S. can submit their own readings of the whopping 13-word long script for a chance to appear in the game. This contest lasts from July 22 through July 29, so if this interests you make sure to get your entry submitted before the week is over.
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.
