Just a tad,

Will alright that might be a tad false.  The late Douglas Adams was born in Cambridge, England but one of his famous props will have a bunch of Canadians bringing it to life.  The Vancouver based indie developer Hothead Games is producing a Hitchhikers Guide app for iOS devices later this fall.

If you enjoyed the show, you know that the guide was the real star of it.  The full press release is below.  Remember “Don’t Panic”


VANCOUVER – August 10, 2011
Hothead Games today announced that an interactive edition of the beloved The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy will be released this fall for iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch.

The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy app is an authentic experience, allowing fans to feel like they’re holding the device that Douglas Adams described over thirty years ago. Users can learn all about the importance of towels, vogons, Milliways, the Babel Fish, a Pan Galactic Gargle Blaster, how to survive in space, and more, all in this friendly app.

“We really focused on taking existing Guide entries and presenting them in a new, interactive way,” commented Joel DeYoung, Hothead Producer. “We have so much respect for the original that we had to stay true to the style of Douglas Adams, and deliver an app that feels familiar to fans, but updated for today’s devices.”
