Well, it seems that the rumors about there being a new Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy video game coming out are true. Hothead Games (Deathspank and Deathspank: Thongs of Virtue) has officially announced that it’s tackling the series as its next project.
Of course, this is the only information we have. We don’t have a release date or a price, but there is a website up and running now to stay in the know about the game’s development:
I’m probably the only gamer old enough to remember the original text-based video game, but this is the first attempt at bringing it back in game-form since then. That was back in the 80’s, so it’s well overdue.
I think this is the studio that could do the game some justice, though. They seem to have the right amount of wit to pull it off. What do you think?
