** Typing "kill self" and the like does exactly that, with the game itself saying nothing more than a "Done." about it.

** In the event that the player types things perfectly, the game will still take a specific phrase in order to advance the plot. Potential candidates include "plug plug in plotter", or "put dangly bit in tea".



## There are about a dozen tools hidden throughout the game, ''two'' of which are in your soon-to-be-demolished house at the beginning (don't worry; if you take every item you see in the house before leaving, you'll have both). Near the very end of the game, Marvin will need just one of these tools to save you. Unless you use the psychic plant, the game will deliberately pick one that you don't have. (And you can't just bring them all because it's too crowded, and the floor is a grill that lets any dropped tools slip away.)

It's notorious for being maddeningly difficult and very funny, and stays close to the other versions of ''The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy''.

-->"Your serious allergic reaction to protein loss from [[TransportersAndTeleporters matter transference beams]] becomes a cause celebre among various holistic pressure groups in the Galaxy and leads to a total ban on dematerialisation. Within fifty years, space travel is replaced by a keen interest in old furniture restoration and market gardening. In this new quieter Galaxy, the [[PsychicPowers art of telepathy]] flourishes as never before, creating a new universal harmony which [[MentalFusion brings all life together]], [[EnergyBeing converts all matter into thought]] and brings about the rebirth of the entire Universe on [[AscendToAHigherPlaneOfExistence a higher and better plane of existence]]. However, none of this affects you, because you are dead."

* LogicBomb: Until you are able to aquire a cup of tea, your inventory will always have the item "no tea". You can't drop it, you can't do anything with it. However, once you fix the drink dispenser on the Heart of Gold, you can acquire "tea", and "no tea" will be dropped there. For the reasons listed under {{Doublethink}}, you need to have ''both''.
