VANCOUVER - August 10, 2011

Hothead Games today announced that an interactive edition of the beloved The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy will be released this fall for iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch.

The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy app is an authentic experience, allowing fans to feel like they’re holding the device that Douglas Adams described over thirty years ago. Users can learn all about the importance of towels, vogons, Milliways, the Babel Fish, a Pan Galactic Gargle Blaster, how to survive in space, and more, all in this friendly app.

“We really focused on taking existing Guide entries and presenting them in a new, interactive way,” commented Joel DeYoung, Hothead Producer. “We have so much respect for the original that we had to stay true to the style of Douglas Adams, and deliver an app that feels familiar to fans, but updated for today’s devices.”

About Hothead Games

Hothead Games, headquartered in Vancouver, British Columbia, is an emotionally secure independent developer and publisher of groundbreaking downloadable titles. Maybe we don’t have a “make your own ice-cream sandwich bar” like some other game companies, but Hothead has brought to life original games such as the scientist-approved DeathSpank and the award-winning Swarm. Hothead is partnering with cool indie studios to bring games like Braid to new platforms and new audiences. We also like to stand near really ugly people so that we appear more attractive ourselves.
