About

The Empire Staggers BackIn 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…

Her Majesty's SPIFFING reviews and comments

Translated by
Microsoft from French
I play on Linux. Linux version: some bugs. The game a 3D dot & click. Humour is everywhere, even in the menus (in the sound options). And it's a fly, every time for my part, except for any references I would have missed:). The dialogues are crispy, and I recommend you leave them in English. I tested a little the beginning of the game in French, and if the translations are quite correct, they are not perfect. There are some useless objects in the décor, subject to various and varied jokes or references. The puzzles are simple, nothing should stop you. Level realization, the 3D does not bring much (to my liking), and the addition of the moves in the décor with the keyboard is a plus. Good on the other hand, still developers who did not understand that the QWERTY was not the only existing layout: there is no way to configure the keys. Fortunately, we very rarely have to use them. Replayability, achievements the game is short, count between 2 and 3h to finish it, plus 30mins to redo the missed achievements (some are mutually exclusive). In short a little short, but very funny. Humor flies every time, I recommend it clearly! GNU/Linux I'm not sure it's due to the Linux version, because there are posts on the Forum of people playing on Windows, but crashes are common during backups, and sometimes we have black screens when entering a new scene. The solution? Change resolution, and reset the previous. It puts the game back in shape. Note: I recommend this manipulation before each backup to avoid the crash to the desktop. It may be due to 4K, apparently in lower resolution, the problem does not appear. OS: Linux Mint 18.3 x64, MATE Edition. Hardware: I7 7700K OC @ 5Ghz, NVIDIA 1080GTX, 32GB RAM. Screens: Dualscreen, 1x 4K & 1x 1920x1200, single screen X.

Its a nice game, and it plays well. However it is simply too short for the price, and one can finish it in a couple of hours.

Beautiful Adventure with funny Anecdotes! Black Humor and a lot Of Wink included! Unfortunately, however, vieeeeeel too short! I hope for an early implementation/extension!

A nice and well orchestrated game - that said, it provides far too little entertainment for the buck. The game is played through within a couple of hours and when you think "Now it gets going" - it's finished! The potential was there but ended as a teaser

Just enough, some bugs, nice and with a nice graphics. The movement Control system is not the best, the playability is still usable. The problem for which I give him only 3 stars is the longevity of the game, it is very short. Comparing It to more outdated graphic adventures like Grim Fandango, Monkey Island, Sybera or Nelly Cootalot to tell you some, it would be sheer madness. The Price is still high for so few hours of play. You could do much, much more. I Don't know if after playing it I would want to replay it and that's all to say...

... So the Title of the final Achievement. Better would have been: At least we tried. Yes, the Game also has Strengths, especially the dry, well-fated British Humor and the quite successful to acceptable 3D graphics. What hasn't worked out so well are Story, Music and Playing Time. For all, Prizes in the Minimalism category would be up for Grabs. With Ease. The Gameplay suffers from the simple Puzzles and unwieldy Controls. When the Main Character, Captain English, fills out the Screen to select perio3, it becomes pretty impossible to maneuver in the small Setting of the Space van. And just quoting the Jokes of Genre Classics — three-headed Monkey, who wants to go again? — and, if Possible, pulling every relevant Sci-fi film through the Cocoa at Least once is somehow not enough to distract from a non-existent Story. The Devs promise that the Fun could continue-if enough Coal comes in. For some other Game, I would hope for It and promote support. In this Case, you should maybe just let the Baby fall asleep gently and forget, somewhere out there in a Galaxy, far, far away ...
