Hothead Games is working on a new Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy title, the company has announced.

The title will be available digitally, although actual platforms are not being shared at this point.

No further information was given.

Hothead's last downloadable title, Swarm, received a cool 7/10 from "I'm convinced the team at Hothead have a great downloadable game within them, but they're still not quite there yet," I wrote in the Swarm review.

Maybe Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy will be that game?

"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," says the press release.
