About the game
Her Majesty’s Spiffing is a quaint graphic adventure game following the exploits of Captain Frank Lee English and his trusted regional colleague, Aled, as they travel through the cosmos in search of planets to claim for a new Galactic British Empire!
In the wake a political crisis Britain found itself isolated from global society. Frustrated by the demise of this once great nation Her Majesty the Queen concluded that the elected representatives at Westminster were no longer fit to govern her United Kingdom. Having dissolved parliament improvements were immediate and wide ranging. However, ever the pragmatist, Her Majesty concluded that, given the complications Britain was facing returning to a position of power on earth, perhaps it was time to focus her attention elsewhere…
Establishing S.P.I.F.F.I.N.G. (Special Planetary Investigative Force For Inhabiting New Galaxies) Her Majesty has turned to the stars in a bid to establish a new, Galactic British Empire!

What others say...
Now that the credits have rolled we're left hoping for the return of captain English and sub lieutenant Jones (if the game sells well, so says the devs). The writing is very funny and although the game is short, it's full of laughs.
The only problem with the game is that I wanted more of it. Her Majesty’s Spiffing will run you about four hours. Once you reach its end, the game is very clear with the player stating that ‘This story will continue… maybe… if we get enough sales’.
... its greatest strengths are a witty script and a wry political edge that cuts especially post-Brexit vote. In lampooning an isolationist Britain, it is the court jester speaking truth to power.
