   30th Anniversary edition
We had so may great entries to the Hitchhiker Adventure Game Picture Competition that we have launched two new editions.
Edition One
   Edition One - Graphics by Rod Lord and Nolan Worthington
The overall winner is Nolan Worthington, whose complete set of location and item illustrations perfectly complement those of our original artist, Rod Lord. Play Edition 1
Edition Two
   Edition Two - Graphics by Rod Lord, Andrew Wyld, Roger Smith and others
Our top amateur artist is Andrew Wyld. He supplied all the item and some location graphics for our second edition.
But we have also incorporated some of the best location images by other artists (see below). Play Edition 2

You can restore existing saved points from either edition and even switch versions in the middle of a game if you feel so inclined - so you don't need to start again from scratch!
All of the opening graphics were created by Rod Lord, so you will need to reach the Vogon Captain's Quarters before you start to see the variations.

Selecting images for the second edition was particularly difficult and it wasn't possible to use some of our favourite pictures, either because the colours didn't match the overall scheme or because we had too many good entries for certain locations.

But we are delighted to have been able to include the work of:
Andrew Wyld: all items plus Galley of the Heart of Gold and Spongy Grey Maze
Roger Smith: Marvin's Pantry, Speedboat on Damogran, Inside and Outside the Lair of the Bugblatter Beast
Andrew Geddes: Vogon Captain's Quarters
Brian Caroll: Engine Room of the Heart of Gold
Ethan Kocak: Skeleton with circuit board
Sid Curtis: War Chamber
Gwynne Harper: Inside the Whale
