You may be wondering: What is SPIFFING? Well, in this case, it’s Special Planetary Investigative Force for Inhabiting New Galaxies. I’m not sure what, if anything, it means in other cases.

Okay, so what is Her Majesty’s SPIFFING? Why, it’s “a quaint point-and-click adventure” in which The Queen has decided to expand the British Empire into outer space. To that end, Her Majesty is sending Captain Frank Lee English (meet him here) and Alad, his mild mannered South Walean colleague, and…er…YOU into the cosmos aboard the HMSS Imperialise.

Gameplay will be in the style of old-school adventures. Solve puzzles, manage an inventory, engage in witty repartee, confront debilitating claustrophobia, try to tolerate exposure to cosmic radiation, play mini-games and do other fun things.

The story of Her Majesty’s SPIFFING will unfold in three individually-released episodes for PC, Mac and Linux; tablet and console versions may follow. The first episode is called The Empire Staggers Back.

The Kickstarter Campaign will run until December 17th. Billy Goat Entertainment would appreciate your support!

I've been with JA in one capacity or other since 2003. I'm currently website administrator. I'm also a digital artist (my avatar is one of my creations). I write reviews and articles, create graphics and basically help tend the site. It's work I enjoy very much. I love playing games of all kinds, but adventure and RPGs are my favorites (particularly scary/dark/unsettling ones). At the top of my list are The Cat Lady, The Longest Journey, Dreamfall, Still Life (first one only), Scratches and Culpa Innata. I'm a dyed-in-the-wool recluse and prefer the company of animals, hardware and ghosts to human beings (no offense). And no bio would be complete without my saying that I do NOT care for phones of ANY sort. Further, I think Dell computers are garbage and that Microsoft has become megalomaniacal.
