If you were anywhere near as dorky as a child as I was, you were probably exposed to The Hitchhiker’s Guide To The Galaxy game. Some fans of this amazing book series may be surprised that in 1984, they released a text adventure game that was pretty advanced for some of the more simple folk ,such as myself (I did die frequently). Fortunately, a new generation of gamers may be able to follow Arthur Dent and his many misadventures in the universe, as Hothead Games has just announced they will be tackling the property of Douglas Adam’s imagination.
Hothead Games is an independent game developer who were behind the role playing adventure games, On the Rain-Slick of Darkness, DeathSpank, and Swarm. They seamlessly bring a sense of humor and accessibility to their game play, something that is needed to tackle such a monumental task of creating a game for Hitchhikers.
When more news on this game becomes available, we will be letting you guys know. Don’t Panic.
