    Way back in 1996, someone made a text-based Red Dwarf adventure game. It’s fantastic stuff, especially for those of us who remember staying up long nights to finish The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy. It’s still listed on HOTU, but I can’t download it because of their overly-protective CAPCHA. I was wondering if anyone here has it, or if they know of an alternative download source.

    Ah, I’ve just found it on Groovetown. Here, actually. Huzzah! Something to play on my laptop while I fly back to the States!

    I have it myself. Wonderful game (even if it’s hard for me to get around the ship without drawing myself a map. You might want to do that for yourself). And you’ll never guess the site I downloaded it from.

    Have you tried looking in other people’s quarters? There’s several of those. Also, talk to Holly. If there’s something going on, say, on another floor, he’d be the one to know.

    (Yes, that was a hint.)

    Damn it, I stumbled across this thread and now I’ve downloaded the game and it’s driving me nuts. I’ve found undeveloped slides, a slide projector, and a darkroom, but I can’t for the sodding life of me work out how to develop the slides… and I swear I’ve been in all the rooms and there’s nothing else I can do… and Holly isn’t very communicative… a little help? *weeps brokenly*

    Just buy a potion from Gandalf the Master Wizard. That’s what I usually do.

    “Just buy a potion from Gandalf the Master Wizard. That’s what I usually do.”

    That needs to be quoted more.

    I’m surprised it took so long for it to come up in this thread, frankly.

    I’d have tried that, but unfortunately Gandalf the Master Wizard was killed in the radiation leak. I’m carrying his ashes round in a bucket but it doesn’t seem to be helping.

    That’s how I feel when I think about Lego Harry Potter, apparently there are some major bugs that can stop you from 100%’ing it. :S

    If it helps, turns out you do a lot better when you actually pay attention to what the non-player-characters tell you. >.<

    I'll be in the stern, co-relating the… in the stern.

    Visit the cat priest and he’ll give you the “sniffer’s scroll”. You can then use this in the cargo bay to plot a course towards the crashed Cat Ark.

    Take the express lift to floor 15, then crawl through the ventilation shaft 27b. You’ll need to grab an oxy-generation unit to cope with the coridoor where the asteroid has hit and punctured a hole in the wall.

    Having not played it yet, I’m trying to figure out if Pete is taking the piss or not.

    Sounds A LOT like Mission Critical. Good game that, too.

    You need to use the luck virus on the keypad in the lift to be able to access floor 15.

    Here’s the boxart.

    Only for the 2 levels with the simulants. It’s a big con.
