The Hitchhiker’s Guide was renowned as one of the most fiendishly complex adventure games ever released. Many considered it a signal achievement even to get out of the house at the start. The Java version you have here won’t let you save or restore a game, so I’m afraid you’re stuck with starting from scratch each time you play. If you’d like to be notified when the full shareware version becomes available, please e-mail Richard Harris at TDV (firstname.lastname@example.org).
If you aren’t familiar with the Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy you will likely be very confused. If you are familiar with the HHGG, you will also be very confused – while the game starts similarly to the book, it soon diverges. In summary, you play the part of Arthur Dent a rather ordinary and ineffectual Earth being with a liking for tea. The game starts when the local council makes a spirited attempt to demolish your house to make way for a bypass. While you’re trying to cope with that, your friend Ford Prefect drops past to tell you that your efforts are pointless, as the Earth itself is about to be demolished to make way for a Hyperspace bypass. The rest is up to you!
