Publisher Secret Mode has officially confirmed its partnership with developer Billy Goat Entertainment. In a first stage, Her Majesty’s SPIFFING has now made its way to console under Secret Mode’s publishing banner. Furthermore, development of a new, high-energy action game for PC and consoles is underway. This title will be unwrapped for the first time later in 2022.
Billy Goat Entertainment’s debut game, the 2016 adventure Her Majesty’s SPIFFING, is now available for PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, Nintendo Switch and mobile devices. The game was celebrated by fans for its cutting satire and inventive twist on the graphic adventure genre. Players follow the exploits of Captain English and Aled as they travel through the cosmos to claim new planets.
“Recognised for its fantastic work on Her Majesty’s SPIFFING, Billy Goat Entertainment represents one of the most exciting emerging development talents within the UK.
“Comedy and satire are hard to master in the realm of video games. But Billy Goat Entertainment has perfected this craft and is well on track to blend these skills with a first-class action experience set to amaze players. Everybody within Secret Mode is delighted to partner with the Billy Goat Entertainment team. We couldn’t sign our partnership forms quickly enough.”James Schall, Director of Publishing at Secret Mode
Her Majesty’s SPIFFING Isn’t Done Yet
The story of Her Majesty’s SPIFFING takes place in a distant time: 2016. In the wake of political developments, Britain found itself increasingly isolated from global society. Frustrated by the demise of this once great nation Her Majesty the Queen sought bringing about a change. She concluded that the elected representatives at Westminster were no longer fit to govern her United Kingdom. She dissolved parliament and returned the United Kingdom to an autocratic government.
Improvements were immediate and wide ranging. However, Britain returning to a position of power on Earth was no easy task. As such, Her Majesty decided to focus 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.
“Our next title is hopefully going to be the commercial success we’ve led Secret Mode to believe it can be. But, before that, we wanted to let our fans (and prospective comedy sci-fi adventure game customers) know that we have unfinished business with Her Majesty’s SPIFFING. Rest assured we read all the comments/reviews left by fans and porn bots alike. Today I’m pleased to confirm that we’ll be revisiting our debut console/PC title in an attempt to placate our most scathing critics, extending the tale of HMSS Imperialise and her crew within!”Will Barr, CEO of Billy Goat Entertainment
As you may have surmised, Her Majesty’s SPIFFING originally debuted in 2016. However, now under Secret Mode’s publishing arm, the game has had it’s price slashed from £14.99 GBP to £9.99. Barr has suggested there’s more from this debut title, as well as the newly announced second release, to come very soon.
