If you've ever played the original Infocom Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy game, you'll know what true frustration is, especially if you forgot to give the dog your sandwich at the beginning of the game. If you've never played it, the BBC helpfully put up an illustrated online version a few years back.
Today, some 27 years later, Deathspank developer Hothead Games has announced it's going to put together a new game based on Douglas' Adams classic five-part trilogy. No details about the game have been announced yet -- and frustratingly, the part of the official site which says which platforms it'll be available for is covered over by an "out to lunch" sticky note. The typically irreverent sense of humor that pervades many of Hothead's games will likely be a good fit with Adams' text, though exactly how it will come to our screens is yet to be seen.
"We're super excited to be involved with such a legendary creation as The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy," said Joel DeYoung of Hothead Games. "The quirky and hilarious universe that Douglas Adams created became an instant classic for so many. All the hoopiest froods here at Hothead jumped on the chance to work on the project."
Zarniwoop Vann HarlaHarlH, president of Megadodo, was sadly unavailable for comment as, according to Hothead and Megadodo Publications (publishers of the Guide) he is far too cool to add quotes to press releases.
