BBC Releases 30th Anniversary Hitchhiker’s Guide Text Adventure Game Online!

hitchhikers guide 30th anniversary text adventure game

Damn if this don’t take me back. This game and Space Quest we’re probably most responsible for teaching YoungGadgetGuy how to type.

See, younger people might mock the simple graphics of older games, but I’m not sure how many kids today realize that some of our games didn’t have ANY graphics AT ALL! We just had to make due with our formidable imaginations. Plus we had Lazer Tag for when we got bored of staring at DOS prompts… So we had that going for us…

Anywho, following the storyline of perhaps the greatest book ever written, this text adventure game throws you into the hilarious shenanigans facing humanity during the last day of Earth’s existence, and the many adventures which befall the only person to survive. If you’ve never read The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy (or just haven’t played this game), you’re in for a treat. I’m almost jealous enough of the novelty you’re about to experience to consider the possibility of giving myself just the tinniest bit of a lobotomy so I could experience it for the first time again too… Sigh…
