Family Guy Online Interview with Ian Verchere, co-founder of Roadhouse Interactive

The Family Guy Free-to-play Online game is being developed by Roadhouse Interactive in Vancouver. Gamezebo has posted an interview with the company co-founder, Ian Verchere. He talks about his experiences with the game industry and how Family Guy’s “MMLOL” gameplay will work.

Family Guy Online is the first “MMLOL,” and I think, in order to deliver major laugh out loud experiences, the action format definitely made the most sense. And it gives us the opportunity to deliver the notion that this is going to be a funny game. You have the characters in the show standing around and telling you to go and do silly stuff.

If you’ve got a game that sends you to get a wolf’s skin that you can trade for a fire rune or whatever, that’s fun. But if you have a game like Family Guy Online that sends you on a quest to find something…naughty so you can do something naughtier with it, that’s kind of fun, too. It helps the game feel like the show.
