FOX and developer TinyCo. today announced that their upcoming mobile game Family Guy: The Quest for Stuff will launch for iOS and Android on April 10. The game is free to download and, like so many other mobile games, is supported by microtransactions.
After Peter and Ernie the giant chicken get into another one of their infamous brawls, lovely Quahog is destroyed and players must rebuild the town.
With Quahog in ruins, you'll need to help Peter rally all the Family Guy characters (even Meg, even though no one likes her) to rebuild the city. Throughout the game you'll be tasked with putting a stop to alien invasions, religious cults, and "more calamities" that threaten to further destroy Quahog.
Some of your other tasks include helping Peter achieve his lifelong dream of becoming a pirate, traveling through the multiverse with Stewie and Brian, assisting Quagmire in finding the long lost Gold Digger Island, and getting revenge on Ernie the Giant Chicken.
Developer TinyCo. worked alongside FOX and Family Guy production studio Fuzzy Door to create Family Guy: The Quest For Stuff. The game also features the show's voice talent and many of the scenes and stories were written by the show writers themselves.
We recently got a chance to visit TinyCo.'s office in San Francisco and we'll have much more on Family Guy: The Quest For Stuff soon.
Family Guy: The Quest For Stuff arrives in the wake of another FOX mobile game, The Simpsons: Tapped Out. That game has been a huge success for publisher Electronic Arts, generating more than $130 million in revenue from microtransactions to date.
