developer Hothead Games has announced that it is developing a game based on the Douglas Adams' book series The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy
Announced on Towel Day, a day celebrated by fans of the late author and his work, the game will be published by Megadodo Publications. There are no details regarding release platforms or dates yet.
Hothead's game technology director Joel DeYoung explained, "We’re super excited to be involved with such a legendary creation as The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy
"The quirky and hilarious universe that Douglas Adams created became an instant classic for so many. All the hoopiest froods here at Hothead jumped on the chance to work on the project."
A website called The New Hitchhiker's Guide
is now live, where those interested in following the game's progress can sign up to the newsletter.
Hothead Games released its two Deathspank
games on both Xbox Live Arcade and PlayStation Network last year.
