Well folks, 746 days after our campaign ended Her Majesty's SPIFFING has been released upon the world... More specifically, Steam, Humble Store and Xbox One (landing December 13th on PlayStation 4).

It's been a long 746 days and, honestly, it's been a hell of a lot harder than I'd imagined it would be. Shipping a game is hard work, I have nothing but respect and admiration for anyone that achieves it themselves. 

Of course something like this doesn't happen because of just one individual. During this journey I've been truly blessed having been surrounded by a supremely talented team of people, we've had our ups and we've had our downs but I want to give a special mention to Darren, Paul, Peter and Ryan for all their efforts and sacrifices during the last couple of years to get this game out the door and into your hands. Also I need to mention Alan, Sam, Matt, Michael, Tim and Daniel who made big contributions to the game as well. A big thank you to Bill, the voice of Captain English, for helping create a character that the game really hangs on, he did a great job.

There are more people that I ought to thank, I'll give them a shout out in another update. For now there is some business to attend to.

Your download codes

All of the people that requested Steam codes should have received them now, if you haven't received yours send us a direct message on Kickstarter and I'll sort you out as quick as I can.

Those who only requested Humble codes should also have received your codes, again, if you haven't received yours DM us.

Finally those that requested GoG as a preference will receive an email from me later this morning with an update on that situation.

DVDs and other physical rewards will be distributed in the new year, I'll have more information about that in an update soon, in the meantime digital codes will be provided so you can play Her Majesty's SPIFFING right away.

We want to know your thoughts!

Once you've had a chance to play the game do let us know what you thought by leaving a comment on our page here or on the store pages. Please do leave reviews for the game if you have the time and, if you're happy with how the game turned out, please do try and direct a few more people to our store pages!

Links

Again, if you can, please do share our game on the social medias, here are some links that we'll be spreading around over the next few days:

Media Stuff

A lovely gentleman called Keith Andrew and myself have been trying to drum up some publicity for the game, hopefully over the next couple of weeks you'll see reviews and articles popping up. For now here are a list of some reviews that we've been made aware of:

Also thanks as well to the guys from Adventure Corner for uploading the insightful video interview above! This video was recorded during AdventureX a couple of weeks back. Those that couldn't attend fret not, Adventure Gamers have just uploaded this article to fill you in on what you missed!

Do keep an eye out for articles about the game and if you see something vaguely praising the game do make us and everyone on your social networks aware!

Finally, enjoy the game!

Again, from all of us here at Billy Goat Entertainment thank you to everyone who backed Her Majesty's SPIFFING and allowed us to embark on this adventure. I'm probably going to sleep for a couple of days now but the next time I'm back I'll talk about the extra rewards and when backers can expect them. But for now, please enjoy our game. Just remember that if you don't like it, you're responsible for it being made so don't take it out on me! :P

Speak soon,

- Will

      Congratulations on the release! I'd been meaning to send through some feedback from the pre-release builds I'd been playing, but I managed to get completely swamped over the past two weeks with my own game dev projects.

      I feel like I should play the current version and finish the game before offering opinions (or reporting the few bugs I spotted), but at 2 hours in, I've really enjoyed what I've played so far and I'm looking forward to finding time to play the rest.

      Thanks for making a fun game and for letting us backers be a part of it. I hope the journey and the outcomes are things that you can reflect on with pride :)
