    this one of the easier games Adams made , hitcher guide to the galaxy game as brutal as sierras games with many deaths , which makes this game a pleasant walkaround sim

    As a huge fan of monty python and Douglas Adams I LOVED this game as a kid. You could spend hours just talking to the robots. Adams really did try to think of everything a player would have typed. I remember it came with 3D glasses. I forgot what puzzle it was used for, but I always wondered how people would get through the game without it.

    I remember being so happy that I was getting really close to the end without a walk-through, but I got stuck and finally gave up and checked. Well it turned out it was just my crappy speakers and a thick British accent, I misunderstood what one of the robots said and it was an important clue. I was bummed, but vindicated. So like she said, don't feel to bad if you get stuck.

    Starship Titanic is one of my most vividly memorable games from childhood, along with Neverhood.
    Sadly I never managed to actually finish it because it used to have some crash-to-desktop bug toward the end.

    I tried to play this game on XP one time and It kept crashing. I thought it was kind of ironic seeing as its got Titanic in the name. It was so messed up that it caused my Comptuer to instantly shut off like someone pulled the plug. I have never seen any software do that before or since. I have been kind of afraid touch it since then.

    I like point and click games also hidden objects. You're channel is great…not to mention Murder, she wrote

    3:56 that's an abstract piece of work, I forget the painter who did it though, I know their famous I'm just not good at names

    I read the novelisation, which was written by Terry Jones on the proviso that he could write it naked….. not the most flattering Author Profile Picture there XD

    I bought this the year it came out. I spent something like 20 hours on it and I didn't even see 10 percent of the stuff in your video. There is also a novel and audio book based upon the game. They are worth checking out.

    This was the first computer game I ever owned… bought it on a school field trip while we were in Barnes & Noble. When I showed it to my parents it blew their minds. Thanks for bringing back such good memories!

    “But the plans were on display…”

    “On display? I eventually had to go down to the cellar to find them.”

    “That’s the display department.”

    “With a flashlight.”

    “Ah, well, the lights had probably gone.”

    “So had the stairs.”

    “But look, you found the notice, didn’t you?”

    “Yes,” said Arthur, “yes I did. It was on display in the bottom of a locked filing cabinet stuck in a disused lavatory with a sign on the door saying ‘Beware of the Leopard.”

    There is a way to skip the animation for motion with the shift or enter key. One of the key presses skips it. But be careful it also skips other types of animation too. This does not work for the elevators or the cylinder elevator.

    Let me see if I can understand the situation.
    You like DOS stuff?
    And you're a girl?
    Gosh darn it, I just don't understand the situation.

    Ahaha music from Kings quest VII and Grim Fandango in the background! Amazing how my brain soaks up all types of useless information xD

    That fucker destroyed your house and he never apologizes and doesn't show any sympathy! I say you have the right to refuse

    Douglas Adams was a huuge computer nerd, someone who also dabbled in programming. I read an interesting thing not long ago, i'm not sure how true vs coincidental it is, but he apparently used 42 as the meaning of life based on it's numerical assignment as the wildcard * in ASCII, which is often used to denote an open variable in a search parameters with programming languages, and REGEX, so contextually, * would mean everything. so the meaning of life is everything etc, I think that bit of information super popular news now, so i'm probably just spouting out stuff everyone already knows. I found it another layer of endearing tacked on to someone whose whole corpus is the embodiment of endearing.
