The Big Con is a classic coming-of-age story that is filled with nostalgic humor and ’90s style. This game stars a sarcastic teenager named Ali who must become a con artist to save her mom’s video store from loan sharks. Players will need to swindle, pickpocket, and con people as they travel cross-country. Through a hilarious narrative that at times feel like a sitcom, players will be able to relive or experience for the first time what it felt to live in the ’90s. Just take a look at the trailer below to feel those ’90s vibes.
Get ready to wear disguises, sneak around, and eavesdrop on conversations. All while trying to learn how to approach each mark and hit your money goals. Players will enjoy open-ended situations, adventure, and exploration. The best part being players are able to decide exactly how they want to con people. Perhaps you wan to only pick pockets or locks.
