Her Majesty’s SPIFFING goes mobile



Date Posted: May 4, 2017

Northern Ireland game developer Billy Goat Entertainment has released its celebrated space adventure game Her Majesty’s SPIFFING (that’s the Special Planetary Investigative Force For Inhabiting New Galaxies, if you’re wondering) on iOS and Android platforms today.

After a successful Kickstarter campaign Billy Goat Entertainment commenced development of Her Majesty’s SPIFFING in November 2014 with funding from Northern Ireland Screen via Invest NI.

Just like the console and PC versions, which were released last December, mobile gamers will now be able to take charge of Captain Frank Lee English as he (along with his insightful Welsh colleague, Aled) takes to the stars on-board the HMSS Imperialise in this modern interpretation of a classic point-and-click.

In Her Majesty’s SPIFFING players will be charged with solving both mental and physical based puzzles, all the while being rewarded with a sharp and witty script.

William Barr, Director, Billy Goat Entertainment Ltd “It takes cues from/ plagiarises everything from Monty Python to Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy. In short, it’s about as British as a game can be, in that it deftly undermines everything we hold dear about this damp collection of islands from beginning to end.”

Her Majesty’s SPIFFING is available now on iOS and Android.
