Her Majesty’s Spiffing
Her Majesty’s Spiffing is an indie game that combines the recent Brexit vote and typical British humor and wraps it all up in a rather eccentric adventure game. The story goes that The Queen, isolated by the political choices of 2016, dissolves parliament and establishes S.P.I.F.F.I.N.G (Special Planetary Investigative Force for Inhabiting New Galaxies). Players follow the story of Captain English and his sidekick, Aled Jones, as they play through a blend of point-and-click action and off-the-wall puzzles.
Her Majesty’s Spiffing is at its best when it’s not afraid to be completely out there. Some of the best puzzles will have you completely perplexed at the beginning, but kicking yourself when you realize the solution was staring you in the face from the start.
If you’re looking for something that’s a little bit different to your usual video game affair, then Her Majesty’s Spiffing is definitely worth checking out. Be warned, though, the British humor is in full-force, and it might not be for everyone.
