It would appear that unforeseen circumstances have forced us to rewrite a number of gags in Her Majesty's SPIFFING. Much like the monarchy I feel it isn't our place to take a side on political issues but, to quote Captain Edmund Blackadder "I believe it rhymes with plucking bell".

Thankfully the decision early in development to develop Aled Jones as opposed to Hamish MacWallace turned out to be an excellent call, I can't see the MacWallace clan featuring in any future HMS instalments.

But I digress

In spite of todays events it would appear that the earth is still spinning on it's axis and, assuming this continues, I write to assure you that Her Majesty's SPIFFING will be available for you to play before the United Kingdom separates and dissolves into history (perhaps even before she selects her new Prime Minister). 

I know we've been rather quiet of late, rest assured we haven't locked ourselves in the fallout shelter, we've just been flat out trying to get this game ready to ship before we have to place it into the "alternate history" category on Steam. We don't think we could compete with the likes of Wolfenstein, Bioshock and Kim Jong Un's unofficial Farming Simulator mod.

I'll leave you now with a short video of some light hearted banter between two soon to be slightly more distant cousins. The graphics are from an older, less polished build of the game but I didn't want to leave you with nothing.

      Update made me grin, feeling slightly less bitter about the result! Should definitely be some reference to Brexit in the game - love Howard Kistler's suggestion below.

      Speaking of categories on Steam, you may also take into account the recent initiative on GOG called Games in Development.

      The outcome was a bloody disaster. I strongly hope through some miraculous sequence of events, democracy will reconsider. Perhaps the disintegration of the UK and EU is a bit of a high price to supposedly stop some immigrants fleeing from their own disintegrated countries. --A Dutchman

      As a Yank I have no place at all to commit on your nation's decisions. But I do think the ship's self-destruct mechanism should be called The Brexit Device. :)

      :____D I always look forward for your updates, and am never dissapointed! :D I just hope you get to include a couple of gags related to the recent events :)

      Cant wait to play it!!
