MovableBlog: HHGG Text Game
April 24, 2002
DNA/HHGG Infocom Adventure text-based game
This game brings me back to the days when I had a Sanyo 555 (a picture sans monitor: the monitor we had had bright green text on a green background). I remember not doing very well back then (getting only to the point where I got the babel fish from the Vogon ship), and since I'm going on memory trying to get back to that point, now I can't remember how to get past the bulldozer. Yeah, I know. Oh well, I remember how the story goes, having read all 5 of the "trilogy", but translating that into text-based-computer-game action is another thing. Oh well, should get repeated visits by yours truly, if only for the nostalgia.
(I'm pretty sure I found this first at MetaFilter, which is still a really great site for links I'd never even dream of looking for.)
