'Family Guy' (ALL) Announced

by Rainier on March 6, 2006 @ 4:47 a.m. PST

Family Guy will feature the offbeat humour of the show's writers in an action/adventure game focusing on the lovable oaf Peter Griffin, his world domination-obsessed son Stewie and their talking, martini-drinking dog, Brian. Throughout the game, these popular characters wreak havoc in many of the same locations depicted in the animated series.

Developed by High Voltage Software, Family Guy will feature the offbeat humour of the show's writers in an action/adventure game focusing on the lovable oaf Peter Griffin, his world domination-obsessed son Stewie and their talking, martini-drinking dog, Brian. Throughout the game, these popular characters wreak havoc in many of the same locations depicted in the animated series.

"The irreverent and satirical Family Guy humour that has made the show a smash hit opens up exciting and untapped possibilities in game development," said Christoph Hartmann, Managing Director of 2K Games. "We are looking forward to bringing the colourful Family Guy characters to life in a one-of-a-kind action/adventure style game."

Elie Dekel, Executive Vice President, Fox Licensing and Merchandising added, "2K Games really understands the distinct humour and unique voice of Family Guy. We're confident that they will develop a hilarious and entertaining game for fans of the show as well as for gamers."

Family Guy performs solidly in all key demographics and regularly attracts almost nine million viewers each week. Family Guy is the only television show in history to be resurrected from cancellation based on blockbuster DVD sales and the strength of its ratings in repeat cable broadcasts.
