Hothead Games, makers of Deathspank and Swarm have announced that they are currently working on a new Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy project. There is little detail for the time being besides that it is being made and is likely to be released on several platforms, it could be a game or it could be an actual guide, who knows!
"Hail people of Earth! Megadodo Publications is pleased to announce that we are working with the interactive entertainment development team Hothead Games to bring The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, the standard repository for all knowledge and wisdom, to the farthest uncharted backwaters of the unfashionable end of the Western Spiral arm of the Galaxy. This new edition of The Guide will be available not only on your planet but also on all nearby systems including Alpha Centauri."
More details on the project will be posted as soon as it is announced.
