FOX and development house TinyCo plans to release a Family Guy iOS game next year, according to a press release issued today. Details are scarce but the development team is working with Family Guy writers and the original voice actors from the show.
The game will feature an original story "influenced by the show's 212-episode catalogue as well as current events". The game will be free-to-play, though it will likely have in-app purchases or some sort of virtual currency.
"It's really fun!" said Peter Griffin, Family Guy character since 1999. "Plus, if you play it for more than three hours it counts as going outside!"
In the game, players will be able to adventure throughout Quahog, recruiting (and sometimes confronting) their favorite Family Guy characters along the way. TinyCo is working directly with the Family Guy show writers to develop the game’s story and dialogue, ensuring that players will enjoy an authentic experience complete with original animation and endless antics that you’d expect from the citizens of Quahog.
There is no indication whether Brian Griffin, the Griffin's family dog who passed away in a recent episode, will appear in the game or not. More details will be forthcoming.
