About the Story

I originally meant to announce this as an April Fool’s joke (ie. a lost Douglas Adams game that doesn’t really exist) but I ended up turning it into a straight adaptation of the story.

Adapted from Douglas Adam's original story, but it is better if you don't know about it before you play it.

Slice of life, April 3, 2023

A very short game about eating cookies while waiting for a train — I cannot say anything more without spoiling it. The idea is good and doesn't overstay its welcome. There are minor annoyances (some actions are not implemented, same for help and credits) but the ending makes up for it.

Very short Douglas Adams inspired game, April 2, 2023

This very short game was inspired by a true story experienced by Douglas Adams. First when I reached the end did I remember having read about it long time ago. Great idea to make such small funny anecdotes into games. Would be fun to see more of this type of super brief games.
