Hothead Games, the makers of Swarm and DeathSpank, are in the process of developing a game based on The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy. The game is being published by Megadodo Publications, yet no further details were provided. However, in typical Hothead fashion, the company has issued a hilarious press statement to celebrate the game’s official announcement. I'll just leave it at that for Hothead to take over driving this boat from here. What they have to say about the matter is far funnier than what I'd cook up.

This press release communication has been approved by the Galactic Communication and Safety Board for distribution via your primitive electronic distribution networking systems.
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 Harl, president of Megadodo, was unavailable for comment as he is far too cool to add quotes to press releases.
