    Publisher Skybound Games today announced that The Big Con, a "teenage grifting adventure" indie title from Mighty Yell, will release on Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One and PC (Steam) this summer. Revolving around a "comedic crime adventure" plot, in The Big Con you'll help teen con artist Ali don disguises, pick pockets and partake in other inventive ways to make (read: steal) money so as to help her mom repay loan sharks.


    Some of the game's main features are as follows:
    • A comical narrative adventure game with open-ended situations, puzzles, and exploration.
    • Live the grift! Pickpocket, sneak, wear disguises, and con anyone you can.
    • Talk your way into deals and out of trouble.
    • Meet a weird cast of ‘90s characters, then rip ‘em off, or help them (if you feel like it).
    • Call home and argue with your mom.

    Her mom needs help from loan sharks? Why doesn't she consult this guy!?

    This game honestly looks like fun! I'll have to try it whenever it's released.

    Is not a point click game so no, is not the 90s adventure game I have been waiting for.

    Yeah, I don't trust this; who names their product after a swindle, or a list of negatives?

    "The Big Con" is what I call nowaday's videogame industry tbh.

    What makes you say that? Looks like the type of game where that'd be an option on PC.

    I'll take it if it's on Game Pass. Too many games to play to even consider more to be honest.

    So they've created a more corrupted version of EXE4's "Scrub Brush" subplot ?

    Huh.
