About the Story

In this short one-room tribute to Douglas Adams, you play as someone in the bath with a rubber ducky. The phone is ringing, but it's quite far away from you.

Editorial Reviews

Baf's Guide


Commemorates one of Douglas Adams's better known eccentricities: that of never being available, since he was always in the bath. Very short game; no puzzles.
