family guy

We’ve been looking forward to the new Family Guy game on iOS since it was first mentioned last December, and we’re happy to say that it is now available for download. Head on over to the App Store, and you can grab ‘Family Guy: The Quest for Stuff’ for free.

For those who have missed our various posts on the title, the game is a joint venture between Fox and TinyCo studios, and it involves you helping Peter Griffin and the rest of the Quahog residents rebuild their city after it’s destroyed. Read on for a full overview…

Here’s a little background on the storyline:

When the Giant Chicken picks a fight with Peter Griffin, Quahog is left in ruins. It’s up to Peter to rebuild it, but he needs your help! Rally your favorite Family Guy characters (even Meg) and save Quahog in this all new adventure from the writers of Family Guy. Or don’t, and regret it forever!

And here are a few of the game’s top features:

– Create a living Quahog that fits enjoyably in your pants
– Unlock hilarious outfits for your characters like Mermaid Peter, Bikini-Clad Quagmire, and Rambo Lois
– Send your characters on ridiculous quests 
– Keep Quahog safe from pirates, evil chickens, and other invasions
– Peterfy your town with decorations such as The Petercopter, The Peterdactyl, and The Hindenpeter
– Unlock hundreds of brand new and classic animations 

And finally, we have the promotional trailer:

Note that we weren’t actually able to find a video with gameplay footage. Apparently, the game leaked a day early and Fox started sending copyright claims to those who posted videos of it. It looks like they even closed a few YouTube/Twitch channels. More info here.

Anyway, minus the drama, the game looks like it’s a lot of fun. I know that TinyCo said that it worked with the original creators of Family Guy to ensure an authentic experience, and the app is said to feature many of the same voice actors and writers from the TV show.

If you want to check it out for yourself, you can find Family Guy: The Quest for Stuff in the App Store, for both the iPhone and iPad. Again it’s free, but there’s a good chance that the game is going to be riddled with in-app purchases, a la The Simpsons: Tapped out.
