Over the weekend Will Barr spoke at AdventureX (the annual, narrative gaming conference this year held at Goldsmiths University, London) about the development of Her Majesty's SPIFFING, the comedy, 3D graphic adventure game developed by BillyGoat Entertainment coming to Xbox One, PlayStation 4, Steam and Humble Store in December.

In November 2014 Her Majesty's SPIFFING raised £33,813 on Kickstarter to start development, Will talks about how BillyGoat was able to stretch the money raised (ultimately the game cost £220,000 to develop) and gives an overview on how his company went from a front for his freelance animation work to a console game developer.
