There are lots of walkthroughs for the Hugo games available anywhere, but does anyone know where I can find scans of David P. Gray's original official paper hintbooks, and any other paper documentation that came with the games? If it matters, we truly did register all 3 games in their first run. :)

Edit: Apparently the game trilogy in both original DOS and revised formats (plus PDFs of the hintbooks!) are still available for purchase from the creator for a total of $10 at his website. I didn't think they would still be available that way. Onward! :D

The trilogy is also available on gog.com for less, and they do offer David P Gray's hintbook as an extra.

I don't know if it's original paper book scanned that you want or some recreation though

Thanks. I was after scans of the original hintbooks. GameFAQs for 20 years has been a great, great place for hints and walkthroughs, but the official hintbooks are something special by the game maker.

Also, the GOG version of the Hugo Trilogy gives a modern overlay for SCUMMVM that I don't like at all. Especially for saving and restoring games.
