Hitchhiker's guide game: not infolit, but fun

There is a free anniversary edition of the classic Hitchhiker's guide to the galaxy game, which was published 30 years ago as a text-only interactive fiction game, written by Douglas Adams himself with games-writing genius Steve Meretzky. They have added a few graphics, but fortunately kept the game basically intact. If you like puzzles and you like Hitchhiker, you should like this. I actually played the original game (and indeed most of the games published by Infocom). If you are not of that era, you will need to read the instructions page. http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/articles/1g84m0sXpnNCv84GpN2PLZG/the-hitchhiker-s-guide-to-the-galaxy-game-30th-anniversary-edition Apologies, this is nothing to do with information literacy (unless someone can find a connection?), but I'm hoping a lot of people who like information literacy also like the HHGTTG
