Mac Hitchhiker's 3D to be Simultaneous Release
10:23 AM | Andy Largent | Comment on this story

Yesterday we brought you word of a new 3D adventure based on Douglas Adams' Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy. More details have emerged on that today, including some great news on the Mac side of the fence. The title will be a 3D game set in the third person with similarities to Tomb Raider and the latest Legend of Zelda. Of course it will also contain the classic Adams humor and wit as you control the character of Arthur Dent as he travels throughout the galaxy. The game is being made by the same team that developed Adams' previous title, Starship Titanic, so you know they're already in familiar territory.

We managed to contact Pan Interactive, the group developing the game, to ask about the possibility of a Mac version. Douglas Adams is a well-known Mac fanatic, so our hopes were high. Pan's Susan Hedin did not disappoint with her answer:

The Hitchhiker Guide to the Galaxy will be released for Mac at the
same time as the Pc version!

We do not have an official site yet unfortunatly, but you may read a
bit more at our PR agent's site;

and in time there will be something here as well

Peter Noble PR, the company mentioned above, has three releases concerning Pan available for you to read. They provide more information on both Pan as a company and the game itself. Check them out for character screen shots and other infomation. The title is currently set for a release early next year, and you can be sure we'll keep bringing you more information as it becomes available.
