Douglas Adams's hugely popular story, The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy has not only been a highly successful radio show, but also spawned a number one best-selling novel and a TV series. Now it's set to conquer the gaming world again.
A 3D 'towel'em up' arcade adventure game based on the comedy sci-fi classic will be released May 2002 on PC CD-Rom to coincide with the launch of Adams's final novel, The Salmon of Doubt.
The game, promising action, adventure - and of course, Douglas's inimitable brand of comedy, has been developed by the games division of his own former company, The Digital Village. Touting the new name Phase 3 Studios Ltd, they're now part of Swedish giant KF Media.
The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, a cult trilogy (in five parts), has sold over 15 million copies worldwide, been translated into almost every language (except Vogon) and enjoys a universal audience of all ages.
This unique gaming experience will appeal to players who have never read a Douglas Adams novel, as well as to his many dedicated fans.
Launch date: May 2002
