Mighty Yell is a team of developers from Toronto who have worked on other indie games such as Jazzpunk and Runbow. The team has come together and is ready to release their debut title, The Big Con, in conjunction with Skybound Games. Skybound Entertainment, a parent company to Skybound Games, has a host of titles under their belt, including Telltale’s The Walking Dead and Ori and The Will of the Wisps.

The Big Con follows the life of Ali, a teen who is tasked with saving her mom’s video store from loan sharks. To do so, Ali must chart her journey across the country by picking locks, stealing, donning disguises, and making profits in precarious ways. The Big Con is filled with puzzles, engaging dialogue, and exploration. The game’s cast is full of different personalities, and an original theme song from Rockapella, the band that performed Where In The World Is Carmen Sandiego? Can you talk your way out of being caught?
