Have Your Voice in The Big Con When it Launches This August

Indie developer Mighty Yell and publisher Skybound Games have announced that fans can now audition to have their voice in the ’90s coming of age title, The Big Con .

The ’90s cross-country adventure game, The Big Con, was announced a little while ago. Back then there wasn’t a solid release date given. Well, fortunately, fans won’t have to wait much longer as it has been announced the game will release next month. Additionally, fans have been invited by the developer to audition for the game’s “unabridged manuscript of thirteen weighty words”. Essentially, you have the opportunity to have your voice appear in the game itself. If that sounds interesting to you, you have the chance to submit your audition from July 22nd until July 29th. Head on over to The Big Con’s website to learn more.

What Is The Big Con?

We covered The Big Con when it was announced, so if you want to get the full details you can head on over to that article. But, to summarise what seems like quite a meaty indie title, you’ll be taking on the role of Ali in this ’90s teenage coming-of-age story. It will set the player on a “hilarious trip” across an open-ended narrative full of puzzles, exploration and petty theft. Here’s some of what you can expect when The Big Con launches this August:

  • Experience a hilarious nostalgia-filled narrative about a young girl and her quest to save her video store
  • Engage in open-ended situations, solve tricky puzzles and explore vibrant locations
  • Live the life of a grifter, pick pockets, sneak around, wear disguises and con absolutely everyone who’ll fall for it
  • Meet a colourful cast of characters ripe with opportunities to rip them off. Or if you’re feeling kind you can help them. But where’s the fun in that?
