209203_FG_Promo_insert_-031Free to play iOS developer TinyCo just announced a real with FOX to release a Family Guy iOS game. Details on what you actually do in the game are limited to the following sentence: "In the game, players will be able to adventure throughout Quahog, recruiting (and sometimes confronting) their favorite FAMILY GUY characters along the way."

…Aaaaand that's about all we know. I suspect it'll be pretty similar to The Simpsons: Tapped Out [Free] in that it'll be a pretty typical iOS free to play game but absolutely drenched with Family Guy fan service. The developers are working directly with the Family Guy writers to ensure that it's up to snuff.

The Family Guy game will be released in 2014, which is a pretty huge spread but it's worth considering that these massive publishers rarely announce anything until it's close to being done. Also, being free to play, it wouldn't surprise me if it popped up soft launched in some obscure iTunes regions very soon.

    Isn't there already a Family Guy game?

    • D. Bida

      There was 2 games I think but that was loooong ago. They've been long gone for a while now tho. The games were kinda fun too. Sort of like the Simpsons arcade game. Not F2P crap

      Family Guy, Time Warped. It was an action platformer where you play as Stewie and Brian through history based stages. It was actually pretty good, developed by Glu before they became one of the great Satans of mobile gaming.

    First thing that came to mind was another Simpsons: Tapped Out.

  • SoyGreen

    Everyone but Brian right?

    Too soon?

    • Adsinjapan

      I hear they're bringing him back, so no biggie.

      • TeddyNYC

        That's what I read. "Brian's a Bad Father" and "Brian the Closer" are two episodes scheduled to air later this season (Feb-May 2014). ;)

        Exactly. The Internet blew up when he died, but anyone who wasn't blinded by sadness or rage knew that they wouldn't just kill a fan favorite character so suddenly. The execs even said so themselves.

  • Adsinjapan

    I'd be happy even if the game was a 5 hour battle with the chicken guy.

    • SherlockEB

      I'd be super happy to see that guy involved.

    • Jake7905

      That actually would be a MUCH better game. Infinity Chicken....so awesome....

    • rshkhsee

      Haha perfect. Would be the first of its kind in the "endless fighter" genre

  • Fraz@TA

    Simpsons did it! Simpsons did it!

  • nini

    It'll probably suck like the show tends to do.

    *cutaway to the show sucking*

    • BlueFalcN

      Take it back you bastard

  • Kane

    I stopped reading further at the first sentence "free to play iOS developer TinyCo"

  • defunct32

    Lol, think it'd be funny if it turns out to be another runner game, recruiting members of the family guy just meant you can play as a different runner with some special ability.

  • Rickard Olsson

    "Drenched with IAP", you mean?!

  • Roshizzle731

    Was hoping for a Simpson type game for Family Guy. I hope Cleveland Brown is on it.

    • Mariosonic2

      Me to

  • Monkeyskullking

    I hope Brian will be there

  • The Summer of George

    Based on the promo image, I'd say it's another endless "runner".
