The Queen is not amused, but you will be

Posted December 4, 2016

Forget the Brexit, Her Majesty’s Spiffing : The Empire Staggers Back has just raised the ante.

Not happy with Britain’s political activities, Her Majesty the Queen has dissolved parliament and taken control.  However, seeing the difficulty in restoring the British Empire to its former glory on Earth, the Queen has her eyes set now on intergalactic domination.

The Queen is taking back her Empire! The corgies are just in it for the treats.

You play the game helping Captain Frank Lee English and his trusted regional accented colleague Aled who are members of  S.P.I.F.F.I.N.G. (Special Planetary Investigative Force For Inhabiting New Galaxies) to aid the Queen in establishing her new Galactic British Empire.  In what looks to be a delightful mixture of hilarious gameplay reminiscent of Day of the Tentacle and jolly good British humour; with as many Star Wars and tea references as possible, Her Majesty’s Spiffing looks like it has the potential to be a cult classic in the making.

This comedy point and click adventure title by Belfast-based indie developer BillyGoat Entertainment has been in development for the past two years, after its successful Kickstarter campaign in 2014.  Her Majesty’s Spiffing is slated to PC release on December 7, just in time for the Queen’s Christmas message.

It wouldn't be a British comedy without an apperance from the French.
