COMMENCING TRANSMISSION…

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.

"We're super excited to be involved with such a legendary creation as The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy. The quirky and hilarious universe that Douglas Adams created became an instant classic for so many. All the hoopiest froods here at Hothead jumped on the chance to work on the project”, commented excitable Hothead human, Joel DeYoung.

Zarniwoop Vann HarlaHarlH, president of Megadodo, was unavailable for comment as he is far too cool to add quotes to press releases.

For up-to-the-Earth-minute communications on this exciting new addition to the Guide, use your fleshy digits to prod your plastic board of keys and visit www.thenewhitchhikersguide.com.

Hothead is partnering with cool indie studios to bring games like Braid to new platforms and new audiences. We also like to stand near really ugly people so that we appear more attractive ourselves.
