Family Guy jumping to the smaller screen in 2014 free-to-play title for iOS and Android

Family Guy is heading to the iPhone and iPad – and Android devices – in 2014. The new game will be set in Quahog, feature all our favorite characters from the show, and will be free-to-play with in-game 'microtransactions' financing things according to Gamespot:

Andrew Green, TinyCo.'s head of business developer and business operations, told GameSpot that the new Family Guy game, like so many other free-to-play games, will be supported by various in-app purchases. These microtransactions will allow players to "control the speed of their progression," Green said, suggesting players will be able to unlock content right away by spending real-world money.

While it's not clear if the game will feature actual voiceover work from the cast, Seth McFarlane, Mila Kunis, Alex Borstein and Seth Green are all reportedly collaborating on the project, and the developers are working alongside the show's writers to create the story. So, it looks like we could be in for a pretty authentic Family Guy experience.

Games like EA's The Simpsons: Tapped Out have been a massive success despite their nickle-and-dime approach, so it's entirely understandable that TinyCo would follow the same path for their next project. We'll have to wait and see just what does come our way, but as a fan of the show I'm already interested. How about you?

Maybe, even though they've "recently poked the shark with a meat-stick while ovulating" (picture peter griffin's voice) by idly killing off a beloved character for no reason. The previous thought qoute was thinking like Peter.

My wife was talking about them killing off Brian and I just told her to wait. Lo and behold the wait was not long.

In animation, nothing is permanent. Just ask Kenny from Southpark.

Would be interested in seeing how the game works, but I doubt I'll play. I don't like the way most places handle in-apps, usually a rip-off.
