Teaser for the second iteration (with a lot of the first iteration in place) Trailer for second iteration Early on, Heavy Iron Studios was contracted to produce a game based on Family Guy from Activision & Fox. Initially, we dealt with Fox (and later Activision) who wanted a zombie story line and game play along the lines of Left 4 Dead. We spent 6 months putting together a prototype that had a lot of different avenues (story/sandbox gameplay, multiplayer, deathmatch, etc), but ultimately it was decided it was too 'dark' and the focus shifted to what you see above (which was heavily changed again). During a meeting with Seth Macfarlane, he flipped out at all the violence and blood and then assigned two writers from the show. The game went through another 6 months of development towards Alpha/Beta/Final, only to be shelved and development to start over again. I stopped watching Family Guy for 3 years as a result of all the behind the scenes issues with the licensor. Anyway, the original prototype (which I don't have) was really something. The one you see here was the second iteration, with the actual released version still quite a bit different.
