Starship Titanic

Douglas Adams' third computer game was Starship Titanic. He outlined the game with collaborator Michael Bywater, and scripted most of it himself. It was produced by his company The Digital Village.

The original idea for the story that unfolds as you play the game came about as Douglas was writing The Restaurant at the End of the Universe. His agent and friends tried to persuade him to write it as a book, but instead the idea eventually became the award winning computer game.

It features a groundbreaking gaming system, allowing you to have natural conversations with the robots in the game, and some fiendishly difficult puzzles.

There's a parrot in it too.
