Description: A collection of new sound effects for Doom (registered only), all carefully sampled from the BBC Audio Collection of the Hitchhiker's Guide To The Galaxy, by Douglas Adams.

For those of you unawares, the Hitchhiker's Guide To The Galaxy is a wholly remarkable book, and also a wholly remarkable audio collection.

The BBC Radiophonic Workshop created most of these sound effects, however a few were provided by real-live actors in real-live recording studios.

I've chosen these effects to keep the game playable, that is, without massively interfering with the gameplay. I may be adding more sounds later, as my time permits. I stopped at 9 sounds, when I realized the file was already up to 156K. With the future installation of my time-space fabric folding desk accessory, I should have already done many more sound effects before I even typed this file. See the Guide under 'verb tenses'.

Seven sounds from (interestingly enough) the BBC radio version of "The Hitch-Hiker's Guide to the Galaxy" rather than the TV show. Covers doors, death, zaps and "aha, I see you" noises. Probably less amusing than it was in 1994, when Douglas Adams was still big in the sci-fi community, and the sci-fi community had a huge overlap with the computer games world. Nowadays I imagine Adams' work is becoming more and more obscure, as there is no more of it.x
