I remember a time when Family Guy and The Simpsons fought for my attention but that time has long since passed as both series lost a lot of their luster. But Family Guy finally has something to hang over The Simpsons: an MMO.
Roadhouse Interactive, a developer reminiscent of Family Guy’s own Roadhouse joke, has just opened the gates to the beta for their free-to-play, browser-based MMO. Being an MMO, it’s not like everyone will be playing as Peter. Instead, you’ll make your own Quahogian and will complete quests while interacting with the world of Family Guy. Any chance to explore a popular series’ established environment is a fun thing as I remember with The Simpsons: Hit & Run. And just like The Simpsons: Hit & Run, writers from the show will be onboard to provide the show’s humor through dialogue and quests.
Right now, I’m imagining a quest like, catch the greased up deaf guy. The reward will be a Peanut Butter Jelly Guy costume.
