Famous Horror Characters Terrorize Family Guy Game for Halloween
James Woods of course is also involved.
Developer TinyCo updated Family Guy mobile game The Quest for Stuff today to include some famous horror characters for a Halloween event.
Billy the Puppet from the Saw franchise is included, alongside Ash Williams from the Evil Dead series. The creepy, murderous leprechaun from the Leprechaun movie series is also now present in The Quest for Stuff.
All of these characters come to The Quest for Stuff's "hilariously haunted" hotel run by regular Family Guy guest star James Woods. Peter Griffin, costumed as a sheriff, faces off against the horror characters and other "supernatural forces" that are terrorizing the hotel.
Fox publishes The Quest for Stuff, while Lionsgate owns the rights to Leprechaun and Saw. Starz owns Evil Dead. This is not the first time Fox has partnered up with outside companies to bring their characters to The Quest for Stuff, as Ghostbusters and Star Trek were past partnerships. Snoop Dogg, Deadmau5, and Weird Al have also invaded the game for previous promotions.
Today's Quest for Stuff update also adds a new "Investigations" feature that allows players to use "sensational" Halloween-themed actions to scare off ghosts in Woods' haunted hotel.
Jam City (formerly known as SGN) acquired TinyCo in July. TinyCo also developed Marvel Avengers Academy, a mobile game that shows famous superheroes like Captain American and Iron Man as students who are still developing their powers.
The Quest for Stuff is not the only game celebrating Halloween. Check out GameSpot's roundup to find out how other games, like GTA V, Smite, Destiny, and World of Warcraft, are marking the spooky day.
