At San Diego Comic-Con during the American Dad! panel, show Co-creator and Executive Producer Matt Weitzman announced the development of American Dad! Apocalypse Soon, a strategy mobile game based on the Emmy-nominated series from 20th Century Fox Television. Developed in partnership with global games publisher MY.GAMES, the creators of the hit mobile RPG Hustle Castle, American Dad! Apocalypse Soon puts fans in the shoes of CIA agent Stan Smith, as he embarks on the mission of a lifetime to rescue his family and save the world from alien invaders.
“I’ve waited 14 years for a game like this based on American Dad!” said Matt Weitzman, Co-creator and Executive Producer of American Dad! “My plan is to become so addicted to it that I won’t have the time or inclination to make any new episodes.”
“We are really excited about this fantastic opportunity to work with the American Dad! universe,” said Vasiliy Maguryan, CEO, MY.GAMES. “Our studios have a real wealth of experience and talent, so we’re delighted to put ourselves to the test with such an iconic franchise.”
In American Dad! Apocalypse Soon, players will experience the signature satirical humor of the animated show as they guide Stan through the most important mission of his life. The game begins when Stan discovers that Francine, Hayley, and Steve have been kidnapped by mysterious aliens known as “Collectors.” In order to rescue them and repel the alien invasion, players will use advanced CIA technology to clone Stan’s somewhat reliable extraterrestrial ally, Roger, outfit dozens of Roger duplicates, build an underground base, fortify the Smith family home, and assemble an army capable of defeating the Collectors and saving his family. Save the Smiths, save the world!
New episodes of the American Dad! animated series air Mondays on TBS, encoring the following week on Cartoon Network.
