To celebrate the 30th anniversary of the Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy, the BBC has re-created the 1984 text based adventure game.
Rewritten in HTML5 the game comes with a larger interface and the ability to tweet from the game.
The site contains a disclaimer that “The game will kill you frequently. It’s a bit mean like that.
If in doubt, before you make a move, please save your game by typing “Save” then enter. You can then restore your game by typing “Restore” then enter. This should make it slightly less annoying getting killed all the time as you can go back to where you were before it happened.”
To save your progress, you will need to sign in or register for a BBCiD.
You can play the game over on the BBC Website.
