Infocoms unveröffentlichtes Textadventure zu „Das Restaurent am Ende des Universums“

Das hier ist eine kleine Sensation: Waxy hat ein Festplatten-Backup aus den 80ern der legendären Textadventure-Schmiede Infocom aufgegabelt und darauf den zweiten Teil zum Hitchhikers-Guide-Adventure gefunden. An dieser Stelle muss man sich René vorstellen, wie er ohnmächtig vom Stuhl plumpst -- muss mir das Internetz so einen Hammer gleich am frühen Morgen servieren?

From an anonymous source close to the company, I've found myself in possession of the "Infocom Drive" — a complete backup of Infocom's shared network drive from 1989. This is one of the most amazing archives I've ever seen, a treasure chest documenting the rise and fall of the legendary interactive fiction game company. Among the assets included: design documents, email archives, employee phone numbers, sales figures, internal meeting notes, corporate newsletters, and the source code and game files for every released and unreleased game Infocom made.

For obvious reasons, I can't share the whole Infocom Drive. But I have to share some of the best parts. It's just too good.

So let's start with the most notorious — Milliways: The Restaurant at the End of the Universe, the unreleased sequel to Infocom's The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy. For the first time, here's the full story: with never-before-seen design documents, internal emails, and two playable prototypes.
