SAN FRANCISCO, CA and LOS ANGELES, CA--(Marketwired - Apr 10, 2014) - After months of anticipation, FAMILY GUY: The Quest for Stuff launches today on the App Store and Google Play, delivering a striking game play experience crafted specifically for mobile platforms.
FAMILY GUY: The Quest for Stuff begins with a new conflict between Peter Griffin and his arch nemesis the Giant Chicken. After an epic battle gone awry, Quahog is destroyed and Peter is to blame. With Quahog in ruins, players must help Peter rally classic FAMILY GUY characters in order to rebuild the town.
Developed as a collaboration between mobile gaming studio TinyCo, Fox Digital Entertainment and 20th Century Fox Television Production, the game draws on the show's 200+ episodes as well as current events in pop culture. With the same style and humor of the TV show folded into the game, FAMILY GUY: The Quest for Stuff delivers a laugh every time you play.
"Not only is the game exponentially more entertaining than reading this press release, it's the only place you'll find Peter and Quagmire napping together," said Rick Phillips, SVP, Fox Digital Entertainment. "We're excited to deliver a game that brings the spontaneity and eccentricity of the show to the mobile gameplay experience for the first time. TinyCo successfully marries the world of FAMILY GUY, its infamous cutaways, lampooning of current events, and irreverent humor with entertaining game mechanics."
"We've had an absolute blast bringing The Quest for Stuff to life," said Andrew N. Green, head of business development and business operations at TinyCo. "Working with an IP like FAMILY GUY wasn't a responsibility we took lightly, and thanks to fantastic collaboration with Fox we're delivering a game that both fans and newcomers will love."
FAMILY GUY: The Quest for Stuff is free to play with in-app purchases. For more FAMILY GUY: The Quest for Stuff content, check out these sites:
