h2g2It’s the 30th anniversary of Infocom’s Hitchhiker’s Guide To The Galaxy text adventure, which has caused the BBC to put up an updated web version of the game in celebration. If you’re a fan of the work of Douglas Adams, a fan of text adventures or in need of a game to satisfy your masochistic urges, this one is for you! The new web version boasts an updated graphical interface and Twitter support. The developers are working on moving existing saved games from the 20th anniversary version, which will no longer support new saved games.

The Hitchhiker’s Guide To The Galaxy first appeared as a BBC radio play in 1978, with a series of books beginning in 1979 and a TV series in 1981. The game was written by original author Douglas Adams and Steve Meretzky, and quickly became infamous for its extremely high difficulty level.
