    Family Guy Online. No, seriously

    I was just strolling by IGN when I come across this:

    http://pc.ign.com/articles/117/1176545p1.html

    Registrations for the closed beta of Family Guy Online opened today. Didn't know there was a Family Guy Online? Neither did we! Some basic snooping reveals, however, that the game will run in-browser and on Unity, and will feature two currencies -- cash and "clams." The description for clams leads me to believe that it will be the primary currency of the game as it is earned by "doing things and accomplishing tasks that you might be challenged to complete." Therefore, cash is likely obtained with real money. We also know it is allegedly launching this autumn.

    An animation loop on the website of Mayor Adam West shows a smooth-looking cell-shaded model. If the game itself looks as good, there could be potential here. It could also be a total no-effort cash-cow.
    Holy crap! Is this for real? It's strange that there was no anouncement (also, the www.familyguyonline.com site is down for me so I couldn't check). Between this and the Michael Jackson MMO, I think we might be going to far.

    Still, I can't tell if it's a joke of it's actually real...

    Weirdly, next to all of the twitter, facebook, digg, etc. it says "Shhh! Don't tell anyone else about Family Guy Online." I also can't see any mention of a game company on the webpage or skimming the terms of use, just Twentieth Century Fox Film Corporation.

    I'm thinking this might be some joke or ARG.

    Family Guy can sometimes be funny, but it's basically a lot of stupid apsurd jokes that don't make any sense. After watching 20-30 episodes I got sick & tired and couldn't watch that piece of s**t any longer.

    The trick with things like this is to watch one or two episodes and then don't see it for at least a week, possibly a couple of months, there's a difference between a nice drink and alcohol poisoning.

    Read the Wikipedia article, and it essentially looks like any Facebook cow-clicker game. And it never got out of beta.

    I hope Seth MacFarlane felt bad about it.
