The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy – The Game Revealed

Folks who have read late Douglas Adams’ infamous comedy novel ‘The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy’will be excited to know that Hothead, the makers of the well received DeathSpank games, is cooking up a game based on the sci-fi novel.

The novel series has already gotten a Hollywood treatment as a movie was released based on the book. This time Arthur Dent and Ford Prefect’s adventures will be a more personal experience, as players will get to explore Douglas Adams’ eerie and brilliantly ridiculous version of the Milky Way. However, Hothead is still to reveal details regarding the gameplay, release date and platforms.

This isn’t the first time the novel has gotten a game-treatment. Text-based adventure games based on the book have been released in the mid 1980s before, but this is the first time we’ll be seeing the whacky galaxy in graphical details.

I don’t know about you guys, but I’m sure Slartibartfast would be pleased about this. Gamers interested in this title can check out the newly launched website title The New Hitchhiker’s Guide and follow its development.
