Fox Digital Entertainment Teams Up With TinyCo for "FAMILY GUY" Mobile Game Coming in 2014(December 10, 2013)
SAN FRANCISCO, CA and LOS ANGELES, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 12/10/13 -- Twentieth Century Fox today announced that it is teaming up with mobile game developer TinyCo to create a brand new FAMILY GUY mobile game.
"Mobile platforms are a new frontier for engaging with your favorite characters and worlds," said Rick Phillips, SVP at Fox Digital Entertainment. "With more than a decade on the air, FAMILY GUY has built a world like no other with some of the most beloved characters in entertainment today. This game will bring the best of the FAMILY GUY experience to mobile gamers all over the world."
The game will feature an all-new, original story influenced by the show's 212-episode catalogue as well as current events.
"It's really fun!" said FAMILY GUY star Peter Griffin. "Plus, if you play it for more than three hours it counts as going outside!"
In the game, players will be able to adventure throughout Quahog, recruiting (and sometimes confronting) their favorite FAMILY GUY characters along the way. TinyCo is working directly with the FAMILY GUY show writers to develop the game's story and dialogue, ensuring that players will enjoy an authentic experience complete with original animation and endless antics that you'd expect from the citizens of Quahog.
"FAMILY GUY is an amazing show that's famous for its sharp wit, unpredictable storytelling, and hilarious cast of characters," said Suli Ali, CEO of TinyCo. "We're capturing that essence and providing players with an awesome way to get their FAMILY GUY fix every day."
The free-to-play game will be available on iOS and Android devices in 2014.
TinyCo builds engaging game worlds that can be played anywhere on mobile devices. Founded in 2009, TinyCo has developed more than a dozen successful games for Apple, Google, and Amazon mobile devices. The company has been recognized as one of the first to crack the code on monetizing the Android platform, and its games have been downloaded more than 85 million times. The company's investors include Andreessen Horowitz, Pinnacle Ventures, and angel investors including Ron Conway and Keith Rabois.
