Play The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy Game Online

One one hand, it’s a bit hard to believe that it’s the 30th anniversary of The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy Game. On the other hand, it’s a bit hard to believe that it’s not been longer. This is the game I would play when I could grab a spare Apple IIe in the high school computer lab and when I could convince the teacher on duty that I would not yell angrily at the screen like last time. As you’re warned from the very beginning:

The game will kill you frequently. It’s a bit mean like that.

If you think you can handle its many quirks and uncanny ability to kill you off under the most mundane of circumstances, you can play The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy Game online, for free. Just be patient. It may talk like Douglas Adams, but it’s only a computer. Make sure to bring your towel!

Our resident "Bob" (pictured here through the lens of photographer Jason DeFillippo) is in love with a woman who talks to animals. He has a fondness for belting out songs about seafaring and whiskey (arguably inappropriate in most social situations). He's arm-wrestled robots and won. He was born in a lighthouse on the storm-tossed shores of an island that has since been washed away and forgotten, so he's technically a citizen of nowhere. He's never killed in anger. He once underwent therapy for having an alien in his face, but he assures us that he's now feeling "much better." Fogarty also claims that he was once marooned along a tiny archipelago and survived for months using only his wits and a machete, but we find that a little hard to believe.
