It hasn’t really been that long since we found The Big Con rocking up on Xbox and PC. But it certainly provided the goods in terms of a fun comic adventure that was full of interest. Now though comes The Big Con: GRIFT OF THE YEAR EDITION – serving up more cons, more comedy, more ’90s throwbacks, and some all-new Rad Ghost arcade action
Arriving as a free (yes, free!) download on PC and Xbox today, as well as launching on Nintendo Switch, the indie developer Mighty Yell, along with publisher Skybound Games, is delivering the all-new GRIFT OF THE YEAR EDITION of the critically acclaimed ‘90s teenage crime adventure. If you thought you were done with The Big Con, think again as this adds a minimum of two hours of all-new content, that Rad Ghost arcade game, additional comedic characters, and new collectables.
The Big Con is a classic coming-of-age story, mixed with nostalgic humor and some wayward 1990’s style as The Big Con stars Ali, a teenager turned con artist who is found trying to save her mom’s video store from going under, pushing away those unscrupulous loan sharks any way she can.
A fun adventure which we absolutely adored – our full review talks of some seriously strong dialogue, a great art style and proper old nostalgia – in The Big Con you will find extra crafty puzzles, witty dialogue, cool collectables, and wacky quests. It’s all about making the cash however you see fit – pickpockets, pick locks, persuade marks, pilfer prizes, pull off disguises, and even master the all-new Rad Skater arcade game.
You’ll find the GRIFT OF THE YEAR EDITION content rolling out to The Big Con on Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S and PC today. It’ll also be dropping into the Nintendo eShop for Switch play too.
