The Great Unwashed is a games development studio formed by Jeff Tawney and Jason McGann. We are specialising in “High Impact” comedy games with strong potential for regular additional content.

The studio comprises key members of Rockstar Games and Activision’s Blast Furnace. Previous titles worked on include Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Stories, GTA: Liberty City Stories, GTA: Chinatown Wars, Midnight Club, Red Dead Redemption, Call of Duty: Strike Team, amongst many others. These games have generated hundreds of millions of dollars in sales.

We think there is a big gap in the market for comedy games, so we are working with professional comedy writers and comedians from the TV and movie business on a highly original game series that we are very excited about. Our experimental comedy work - created with one of the original Spitting Image writers – has been nominated for awards and selected for screenings in Berlin and Cannes.

The first title is a comedy action series called World Leaders.

World Leaders features caricatures of various political leaders and dictators. They live together in a surreal cross between a Big Brother house and a mental institution. In the first game of the series – a classic, top-down arcade shooter – the player controls little cartoon versions of the world leader characters and faces an onslaught of bizarre nightmare enemies.

Inspirations include vintage arcade action games, the punk movement, “high camp” musicals and exuberant communist state ceremonies.

World Leaders will be developed initially for PC (Digital Download). Console and mobile versions will follow.
