Indie games company NotGames is looking for enthusiastic, hard working and experienced new team members for a part time 3 month voluntary role. You must have…"NotGames are recruiting!"
NotGames, the indie dev team who should probably stay in their rooms and think about what they’ve done, are delighted to announce that, thanks to the success of their debut game, NotGTAV, they are able to today make a first payment to their charity – Peer Productions – of £5,000. Peer Productions works with young people to provide high quality social education through theatre. Their highly acclaimed theatre work has been seen by tens…"We gave all our money away!"
We are delighted to announce that the “Moral Conundrum Sale” of our cult hit game NotGTAV begins today at 6pm UK time and will last all this week on Steam. And we’ve decided to offer our potential customers an interesting choice… As you are probably aware, we give 100% of the profits from NotGTAV to charity. While this is very good in terms of our long-term karma it’s turned out to be rather problematic for…"NotGTAV “Moral Conundrum Sale” begins today and lasts all week!"
Somewhat unbelievably, NotGames have got Mac Achievements working in NotGTAV. Sort of. BuildMaster General Andy Murray (still not that one) explained “We wrote to YoYo Games months ago to tell them that the Steam Overlay was not working in Game Maker. The bug was logged as critical. No fix came along. Having been passed around a bit it has now been downgraded. However, we have got a workaround… “The overlay still doesn’t work. We want to make…"Vive La Bodge! NotGTAV Mac Achievements Now Work!"
Four of the NotGames team went to EGX to show the world NotCoD for the first time. These are some of the things we learned… 1) The NEC is big. Like, really really big. So big that you have to take a bus from the car-park to the halls, which are themselves so big that you can fit a full sized Tie-Fighter, a medieval market, and, for reasons we never quite understood, a pirate…"EGX 2015: Four days, one panel, two blokes in dresses."
In just two short weeks four of our disreputable team of miscreants will be taking a jolly old trip to Birmingham for this year’s EGX Rezzed. We’ve got a small display stand in the Rezzed area and we will be letting all-comers play snippets from our next game: NotCoD. It’s all tremendously exciting. Especially for Jay. He hasn’t left the house since 1972 and the other day he asked us what a “Birmingham” was. This…"Come and meet NotGames at Rezzed…"
Having promised to donate all the profits from NotGTAV to charity, we’ve quickly realised that we’ve got no money left for essentials such as tea, milk, and making the next game. We thought about Kickstarting, but the prospect of sorting that all out made us want to put a power drill through our own faces. And we thought you deserved more for your hard-earned than a promise of a game we might or might not…"NotGTAV: The Kickstarter Avoidance Album OUT NOW ON STEAM"
In what has quickly become the weirdest day of our lives, and one of the most hectic, we’ve just received news from Valve that the plaintiff of our DMCA is now being treated as a false complainant. NotGTAV lives!!!!!! We’re half-way through rebranding the game as NotDMCAV, and the store page we’ve designed gives us a huge giggle, so we’re leaving you some of our new artwork (you may be able to tell it was…"NotRockstar?!?! NotDMCAV, previously NotGTAV, re-releasing as NotGTAV."
Dear NotFans and NotFriends, So as most of you know, about 9PM British time last night NotGTAV vanished without a trace from the Steam Store. We are still not back online. We found out about this at the same time you did, when you guys started to tell us you were no longer able to access the store page. Everything was hunky-dory at our end and so we reached out to Valve for support, assuming…"First of Many NotGames Legal Battles Begins"
You asked. We listened. We delivered. Plus, we want to put off a Kickstarter for as long as humanly possible. NotGames’ sister company, NotMusic, was founded in 1927 by our grandfather, Spencer NotGames IV, who was exiled from the family for the simple offence of simply not being funny (plus there was the unfortunate Hooker-Gate scandal.) In 1948, NotMusic pioneered the genre Euro Pop Whinge, and launched its flagship annual convention a few years later.…"NotGTAV: The Kickstarter Avoidance Album’ releasing on Steam 10/07/2015"
