Family Guy: The Quest for Stuff Writers’ Room

Posted on October 24, 2014

A sneak peek at how we made Family Guy: The Quest for Stuff so funny and authentic to the humor of the show -- we created a writers' room where they make the TV show!

The team and I traveled from S.F. to L.A. nearly every week for 6 months to write and design content (and eat steak sandwiches!) alongside the writers from Fuzzy Door (the creators of Family Guy) and members of the production team at Fox.  This direct connection to the writing staff of the show allowed us to capture the humor and voice of the show while also bouncing design ideas, future content, and the dialogue you're seeing in the game now.  We also had the privilege of working with Fuzzy Door on the writing, production, and direction of the intro cinematic that starts our game which is why it feels like a small slice of the show.

I'm so proud of what we created and happy that folks are enjoying the game!

Sadly the door isn't fuzzy.

We had an amazing release party in L.A. for the Family Guy: The Quest for Stuff game last night.  Adam West, Alex Borstein, and many other actors, writers, and producers from the Family Guy show were in attendance along with members of the development team from TinyCo.  We got to show off the game to the press, talk with all the celebrities, and just have a great time celebrating the release of the game.  Here are just a few photos.
