The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy remake? Must have...

I just found this and got a just a tiny bit excited.

The original HGTTG text adventure fills a part of my soul that I imagine memories of football games with that goofy uncle fills the souls of those more athletic and possibly healthier people that I know.  It was like reading the book all over again from a different (and at times more frustrating) angle.

Turning the game into a click and point game sounds great... but I'm going to have to try it before I say anything.  A lot of the humor that I loved from the original was because it was Douglas Adams writing it, and the man was a bit of a wordsmith (or wordsmythe, as I like to imagine would be printed on his business card).  Turning it into a point and click I fear may cause some of that awesomeness to be lost.

I loved point and click games.  I spent many an hour in certain mansions and islands.  I feel like when Batman and Robin would show up on Scooby Doo.  I just hope it doesn't turn out like Batman and Robin on Scooby Doo.  I don't think I liked that episode.
