Fox and development house TinyCo have today unveiled the first images of the upcoming Family Guy iOS game, which is slated for release next month.
The game features an original story "influenced by the show's 212-episode catalogue as well as current events." It will be free-to-play, likely supported by in-app purchases or virtual currency.
As can be seen in the screenshots, the game features the same locations and characters that are in the hit television show, with Mort, Peter, Quagmire, and Chris outside The Drunken Clam in one shot and Peter and Joe outside the Quahog police station in another shot.
"We're working closely with Fox Digital Entertainment and 20th Century Fox Television production to guarantee an authentic FAMILY GUY experience that makes you laugh your ass off," said Andrew N. Green, head of business development and business operations at TinyCo.
While there is no official launch date in place for the Family Guy game, it is set to be released in April of 2014. More information can be found on the game's Facebook page.

That's nothing, Flappy Bird caused me to lose my wife, quit my job, get kicked out of my apartment, stay in a shady neighborhood with low rent, join a street gang to make ends meet, move across country to hide identity from said street gang, and step on a rusty nail on the way.
TL;DR: Flappy Bird literally gave me tetanus.
On another note, this game signals that Family Guy is very much alive in the minds of Fox and it will be around for a while longer. But they need to be more consistent with airing a new episode every week, sometimes they skip a lot of weeks and it makes it hard to keep up. I still love the show though.
