When it comes to galactic exploration, I'd like to think I'd be prepared and informed, like For Prefect. Or maybe intelligent and adaptable, like Trillian. But in my heart of hearts, I know I'd more likely be constantly bumbling around in a state of mild confusion where I can only hope to have the constant good luck that surrounds Arthur Dent.

If you're already thinking about how you'd cope with finding your planet demolished to make way for an interplanetary expressway, or how much trouble you'd get into if you had access to an improbability drive, you want to head over to the BBC. They've released a freshly-polished 30th anniversary edition of the text-based Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy game.

If you have no idea what I'm talking about, I'm sorry, but you've got some reading to do. Or watching, old-tv or new-movie versions. Or listening to radio plays. Or, really, accessing Douglas Adam's amazing way-more-than-3-book trilogy now. You'll thank me.

Remember, the game will kill you, probably frequently. It does that. But hey, that's why Save exists.
