  • Summary: Taking command of the near future spaceship HMSS Imperialise and her crew, you delve into the cosmos, solving puzzles, engaging in humourous banter, deal with crippling claustrophobia, gradually succumb to the sustained exposure of cosmic radiation, and so on. All for Queen and Country.

    This is a game that wears its heart – as well as it’s influences – on its sleeve, and will charm you throughout.

    You would never know that this is the first game from Billy Goat Entertainment, from how well polished and written it is. Very funny and filled with pop culture references, it makes you hopeful for the post-Brexit future.

    Packed with puns but short on plot or perplexing puzzles, Her Majesty’s SPIFFING‘s intense Britishness will either amuse or confuse, but either way it’s more of a teatime crumpet than a regal banquet.

    Neither funny enough to forgive the easy puzzles, nor hard enough to get away with meh jokes. [Issue#259, p.64]

    Sure, the animations and the scenery are well made, the game is technically solid, and the voice acting is … bearable, but everything that makes a good graphic adventure an adventure is missing here.

    Five Word Review: Unique and humorous, too short.
    Favorite Thing: The humor is great. With a British cast they could have very easily made it
    Five Word Review: Unique and humorous, too short.
    Favorite Thing: The humor is great. With a British cast they could have very easily made it so the rest of us don't understand a word ... but they didn't.
    Least Favorite Thing: I still don't know what a spiffing is. Also, the price is rather steep for how short the game is.

    Playtime: ~ 3h (2 play throughs, 100% complete)
    Enjoyment: 9/10
    Recommendation: If you're an adventure game fan. Make sure to get it on sale.

    Really well made, packed with humour and character (of a very British nature!) and very reminiscent of the old LucasArts point and clicks.Really well made, packed with humour and character (of a very British nature!) and very reminiscent of the old LucasArts point and clicks.

    However, extremely short, and for the current price tag it is very debatable whether it's worth picking up - we're talking about around two hours from start to finish, and very linear. Perhaps wait for a sale.

    That said, it honestly is a very funny, well made title - I'd love to see a fully fleshed out version of this title in this universe, as it's a brilliant proof of concept (perhaps an action adventure title?)
