This one’s for the fans of Family Guy… As a result of co-operation between Fox Digital Entertainment and San Francisco-based TinyCo, your beloved cartoon characters are coming to iOS and Android smartphones at some point next year.
According to Polygon, the game will be free to play, featuring an original story based on Family Guy’s 212 episodes “as well as current events.” The gameplay will see players adventuring throughout the city of Quahog, recruiting and confronting Family Guy’s cast of characters along the way. It will feature elements of resource management, but the primary focus will be on characters and story, with a “large meta-arc” that will play out many months after release through regular updates.
The good news is that both parties want to make a quality game rather than a simple “brand-slap.” And in that sense they want to create great game that not only promotes the show, but “also makes money.”
