Retro Unbox: 1984 Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy Game

Scroll down

Since it’s Towel Day, I thought I’d post a new video I’ve been meaning to make for a while: An unboxing of the original 1984 Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy game by Infocom and Douglas Adams. It’s a crazy-hard-but-awesome text-only adventure game that you can now play online. I had it for the Commodore 64 when I was a kid, but the version I’m unboxing (another very thoughtful gift from my mom!) is MS-DOS compatible. This box is chock full of cool Hitchhiker’s paraphernalia!

Like I say on the YouTube video, I flubbed up the narration of the video a little when I was introducing the destruction certificates, but I don’t have time to re-record so hopefully the Douglas Adams fandom will forgive me.

Here are still photos from the unboxing below. Happy Towel Day! :)
