See exclusive footage of Family Guy: The Quest for Stuff

As you may have heard, Fox accidentally released Family Guy: The Quest for Stuff onto the App Store 48 hours early. Assuming it was a soft-launch rather than an accident, may people started posting videos of the game on YouTube, and streaming gameplay on Twitch.

However, within hours of the app's appearance, reports appeared saying that FOX was flagging YouTube videos containing footage of the game. What's more, AppSpy community member HansKaosu had his Twitch account shut down altogether, apparantly as a result of streaming the game live.

Given that the game had publicly appeared on the App Store, and that no-one did anything remotely illegal in downloading it, it seems a bit harsh that people are getting black marks on their accounts for daring to stream and share a publicly available game.

Though the app has now been pulled from the App Store, we have obtained some exclusive footage of Family Guy: The Quest for Stuff in action. This is the video FOX doesn't want you to see:

I cannot fault this logic. It has no faults.

^Was that sarcasm? (Being autistic, it's atrocious for me to figure what is and isn't sarcasm).

This is actually the first I've ever heard of this game --which I just found out is supposed to be coming April 10th-- and after reading a bunch of stuff I've come to know that this game is basically a reskin of Simpsons: Tapped Out ? ._.
(Which, in my opinion, isn't a good game; if one could even call it a game).

It was (very good natured) sarcasm, yes. I think FOX just wants to control its output. They made a mistake, and are now arguably overcompensating by bringing down the banhammer.

And yeah, I think you're right, the game will have a lot in common with Simpsons: Tapped Out

Ahh, okay. Usually when the banhammer is brought out like it has been here, it's because the project is either extremely well-made and is meant to be secretive until release, or (more unlikely) they're very close to completion and don't want the wrong product (no matter how unfinished) to be distributed.

If it's basically gonna be a clone of Tapped Out, I'm already uninterested.

By the title, it at first sounded more like a spinoff of South Park's "The Stick of Truth" (which I would have been hella okay with).

If they're clamping down this much, then it must be a really good game. ;0;
