"Beyond question the most mind-bogglingly hilarious story Infocom has ever produced is The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, written and designed by Douglas Adams, author of the phenomenally best-selling novel, and Steve Meretzky, the award-winning designer of Infocom’s Planetfall and Sorcerer.
As the story begins, you are Arthur Dent, and a bulldozer is preparing to level your house even as an alien space fleet is preparing to level your planet. The incorrigible Mr. Adams has written new material and designed problems especialy for this interactive story. So grab a pint of bitter and a couple for the road and join Ford Prefect, Trillian, Zaphod Beeblebrox and Marvin on a cosmic jaunt into the outer reaches where anything can – and does – happen. And don’t forget your towel!"
