Don't panic: Play The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy in-browser

So long and thanks for all the fish

Looking for something to do today? How about be (rightfully) poked fun at by Douglas Adams for thinking you could pick up your dressing gown without getting out of bed? You can't reach it from the bed. The effort almost kills you.

In celebration of its 30th anniversary, BBC is hosting another browser-based version of the classic text adventure, which is prettier than the 20th anniversary edition its hosted for a decade.

Play it here. This is actually the first time I've done so. It's already funny.
