April 21

Our Game had an Identity Crisis...

As of April 21st 2018, the game formally known as NotGTAV will be rebranded as "NotTheNameWeWanted".

The game itself is still the same ruthless snake-like parody set in Britain's green and pleasant lands it always was, complete with shonky hand-drawn graphics. You can still play as Daffyd, Darren, and former British PM David Cameron in this short, satirical tour of the glories of the UK's M4 corridor. And it is still the same easy to play, hard to master, addictive, hilarious and cheap cult hit game it was. So nothing has changed. Except the name.

So, to summarise, the game formerly known as "NotGTAV" is now called NotTheNameWeWanted".

If this announcement has left you positively bursting with legality, here's a list of totally legal things to do:

-- Invade a Middle-Eastern country for their oil wealth.

-- Host a children's show or star in a popular American sit-com in the 70s.

-- Move your inherited riches to an offshore tax haven

-- Put the kettle on.

-- Take the kettle off again. It looks stupid on you.

-- Capitalism.

Finally, we would like to point out that NotCOD, our much better follow up game, and winner of the "Funniest Game That No-One's Ever Heard Of" award for a second successive year is also available on Steam, and, to mark the event of the name change, both these games will be available at 75% off from this Friday for the whole of next week. And they were already cheap to start with...

Reviews

“...the kind of blunt satire of which even South Park might think better.”
Wired

“Definitely one of the most British games I've ever played”
Jim Sterling

“Repeatedly smash David Cameron into a wall... the most satisfying game mechanic ever created”
PCGamesN

About This Game

Not The Name We Wanted is a parody.

It is definitely, positively and legally, NOT that carjacking game that seemed to do so well.

This top-selling short tour of the glories of the UK’s M4 corridor is easy to play, hard to master, addictive, very funny, and stupidly cheap.

100% of the profits from this game go to young people’s charity Peer Productions. Without Peer Productions the NotGames team would never have met. By buying this game you can help us pay something back.

FAQ:
Q: Is it meant to look that bad?
A: Yes.

Q: Really?
A: Yes. Really. It's satire. Like South Park.

Q: Is it meant to be just Snake?
A: Again, yes. That's kinda the point of the satire, see?

Q: So why should I buy it exactly?
A: We guarantee it'll be the funniest game of Snake you've ever played. Especially if you know anything about the UK. Or an infamous driving game. Or have, you know, a sense of humour.
