HMS wins IndieDB Creativity Award

It's fair to say that, given how late in the year Her Majesty's SPIFFING was released, that we've flew under the radar of most people's GOTY lists (can't think of any other reasons for being omitted)! :P
However, we're happy to announce that the lovely editorial team at IndieDB have awarded Her Majesty's SPIFFING with their 2016 Creativity Award.


Winners of the Players Choice Awards will be announced later today so do keep your eye on the IndieDB website for more information on top indie games.

General BUG: Crashing during intro sequence

UPDATE: We believe that this is fixed now, if anyone is still experiencing this issue please get in touch or leave a comment below. Thanks for your patience!

A few people have reported that they are experiencing a bug crashing the game during the intro sequence. We are looking into this now and are hoping to have a fix in an update very soon.

WORK AROUND
In the meantime, a work around is to simply skip the intro before reaching the point of the crash (seems to be happening for most when Her Majesty walks in front of the bookcase, about 24 seconds into the sequence).

To skip the sequence double click left mouse or double tap the A button if you're using a gamepad before this point.

Click here to view the intro sequence for reference.

If you're experiencing this leave a comment below and, if you can, email the crash log to hello(at)billygoat.tv. Thanks for your patience, we're a small team so this may take us a few days to sort out, sorry for the inconvenience.

Reviews

“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.”
9/10 – GameReactor

“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’.”
4.5/5 – Twinfinite

“... 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.”
4/5 – The Guardian

About This Game

The Empire Staggers Back

In the wake of political developments during the summer of 2016 and the events that followed, Britain found itself increasingly 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, returning the United Kingdom to an autocratic government, 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!

Assuming command of the near futuristic space ship HMSS Imperialise and her crew (distinguished veteran and gentleman Captain Frank Lee English and Aled, his mild-mannered South Walean colleague) YOU will venture into the cosmos, solving puzzles, engaging in witty banter, deal with crippling claustrophobia, gradually succumb to the sustained exposure of cosmic radiation and so on, all for Queen and Country.

Heck, along the way, you may stumble into a few other folks venturing about the cosmos with their own intergalactic aspirations…
