The Geeks Are Coming!!

Hey there Clammers! So…Bunny is SUPER excited. Some amazingly cool stuff coming soon from TinyCo and this AWESOMELY fun game. Super Geeky stuff.

Superhero Peter

Being a huge Geeky Nerd girl, I am really giddy with this one. (Still waiting for the Blue Harvest Moon Stuff too.) I have great hopes for this event. So much so, I am got myself a ticket, joined up with some local Geek Podcasters, and am going to be immersing myself in nothing but Geeks. What does that mean? Well, let’s just say Bunny is going to be taking a lil trip REALLY soon. And YOU get to come along for the ride on my journey into all things Geek. MMmmmmm to be immersed in a massive crowd of Geeky Nerd boys. Heaven?

Stay Tuned…

Bunny

  1. Well this totally sucks! It won’t let me play on my android without the update but when I try to update it shows the android as already having the app installed… So I am guessing it will not let this upgrade happen until the 31st and I won’t be able to play again until then… :o(

    Anyone have any advice besides waiting a week to play again? It isn’t fair to do this to Android users.

    • You should still be able to get into your game on your Android, unless you’ve attempted to use iOS to access your game. That’s the only time there will be a hiccup in the system. Because the iOS is at a newer version, so it won’t recognize the game on Android until Android updates on the 31st

  3. The delay shouldn’t really matter as long as iOS and Android users have the same amount of time for the event. There’s no real competition in the game with everyone playing individual games and being all different levels so as long as everyone has the same amount of time to finish the event it shouldn’t make too much difference.

  5. Just wondering, not concerned if Android is the 31st and I do use Android, but if there is a delay between IOS and Android why not delay the IOS version until the 31st so that they would both come out the same time this would stop the complaints, would this seem logical. I am looking forward to it whenever it starts. Finaly thanks for all the help and info you guys give. 🙂 🙂

    • Very good point. We are also somewhat in the dark about the actual content right now, so we all will see the significance of the release date. Why they are on different release dates, scroll down to read Bunny’s comment below. 🙂

  6. I don’t think this is an event. It says it will be in Appstores. Not it will be coming to your game. Maybe this is a new app or something. A Family Guy RPG with Superpowers. That’s why it’s delayed for Android. But I don’t like why Android is always in every situation delayed not only with Family Guy but also with other apps.

    • It’s an update that will only download from both appstores when available. Just like other large file updates. Too big for an in game update like this “Rupert” event. TinyCo has verified this already. 😉

      • Update, like not an event but something that will be here forever? Cause if it’s an event-update would that mean Android-users get a week more time? Cybersilly oooo wise one tell me 😉

        Personally i don’t mind that Android users have it a week later. I will be on holiday till 2/8 so it’s even better for me LOL

  8. Love all stuff comic related stuff, just been to comic con here in the UK so realy looking forward to it. 🙂 On a different subject visited one of my friends towns and he had what looked like security towers and fences, new walls and a new car, do we get this when Stewie is unlocked, as the town I visited had everything unlocked. Thanksto anyone who can help.

    • Some towns are Beta towns, players started months before the “official” roll out date and LOTS of content came out that is not currently available. And some towns have “Modified/Altered” games, which is a big no no in the eyes of both TinyCo and this blog. 🙂

  14. I’m pretty excited to see what this new event will add to the game. Hopefully it will be a little bit more fair to freemium players than the Full Moon event and this tea party business thats currently going on.
    However, I’m a little bit concerned because I haven’t unlocked Stewie yet and I have a feeling that he will get a costume with this event. IF that is the case, does anybody have any ideas as to whether we can earn the items to get skins for characters that we haven’t unlocked yet?

  15. After the Rupert event, they should at least let everyone go back to their daily task to get Stewie and other costumes, before they release the next event. But I can understand they want to release this due to comic con.

  17. I don’t know what this is but I’m intrigued, excited, curious and nervous for TinyCo. I hope they nail this event, they need to have positive player reaction. However, a week between releases of iOS and android is not a good start. Being an iOS user I in no way feel nannanabooboo about it. I would like everyone to be on a level playing field. I use an iPad for gaming but my phone is android and always will be, so I have particular preferences. Like Bunny I am an enormous geek, nerd, what have you- and all things superhero, fantasy and science fiction have thrilled me since childhood, so this event could be huge. Not as big as a blue harvest event, but big none the less. That android delay bothers me though.

    • Talking back and forth with them since before the games release, they wish they could have a simultaneous drops too. Normally, Android gets the updates first so this is unusual that iOS gets it first this time. But I try not to delve in the madness that is app releases and all the legal junk that goes into it. That’s a whole nother level of issues I don’t want to even try to understand. Too many companies competing/ waiting approval to release just one lil app. It’s crazy. 😉

        • Launch it on iOS when it hits. Then, transfer to Android if that is your preferred method. Just make sure you play ONLY on the device that updates first and STAY on that device until the other updates. Otherwise you will run into issues as the other will be stuck on the previous version and won’t show ANY of the new items until it is updated too. Make sense?

    Appreciate all the work on this site and the humorous way content is delivered.

    I’m hoping the next event gets back to how things were when the game first launched: longer story lines.

    Though these skins/characters are cool I really wish there was more development of the dialogue/interaction. It seems like so much less compared to when the game first started. Falcon Peter, Banana Brian, and Ruepert had nothing, Carter was just 2-3 steps, Stewie was even shorter. Stewie, though awesome & funny, seems like a anticlimactic experience based on the wait for him. It all makes the game way less interesting for me. Too much development is put into repeated clicking & waiting and ways to shorten that wait then anything else. Clicking and waiting over and over again without all that great a payoff makes for a bad game imbalance in my opinion. Just not as interesting or fun.

    • Another commenter said it perfectly a while ago when he/she said, “In this game, the quests don’t come after unlocking characters. The quest line comes before, not after.” Just such a lack of dialog and everything feels so rushed.

      A light bulb went off in my head just now. The game IS called “the quest for stuff.” So all this clicking and waiting is really the most basic premise of the game! But I agree. Too many things to just click and wait, and no real story for unlocking characters. I sign in a few times a day, click, and sign off. Nothing else to it. I wish quest dialog ended on a part 12 and not a part 3.

  27. Two questions pop to mind:
    1) do you have to finish the Freaks and Geeks questline before the event? I finished the second task where Lois wets herself, but it has totally disappeared after that and the nerds still wander free through my Quahog.
    2) can you login to your game using the same FB account on both your iOS and Android device? What happens to the missing material (i.e. Gold Peter suit when you login on Android)?
    Thanks in advance!

    • It is not in TinyCo’s hands. Not what so ever. Keep in mind they are dealing with outside companies and still have to get their approval on each and every single update that push through that market. They work tirelessly around the clock to get these pushed as fast as they can and as close to one another as they can. Once submitted to the app markets…it is out of their hands.

      If TinyCo had a choice, they would all drop at the exact same time to all markets.

      • I don’t believe that for a second, google has always been faster in approving updates, and much more liberal than apple too. This is a decision by tinyco, and a very poor one. They will alienate a lot of people with this decision

        • A lot of times the app stores require a contract stipulation with a company for their apps. This is what happened with Golden Suit Peter (which is why he’s only on iOS)…this very much could be the case here.

          • Still don’t buy it, if tinyco wanted to release at the same time then they could just delay the apple release until the 31st.

    • They are working in it. It is up to the markets on ok to release. Just keep in mind…there has been several events now Android users got first and Apple users had to wait a week or two. The game itself was actually ONLY released to Android in BETA too. So a lil give and take on both sides. 😉

    • Much like any other event out there…we NEVER release info until it is live in the game. Too much can happen between now and then. Characters held back, times or tasks changed, etc. Just too many variables. When we release info, we prefer it to be done with accurate and correct information for our readers.

      There are a lot of “hoops” you have to go through to launch items via apps. Some allow them through faster than others. TinyCo is still working with all the markets to sync the apps closer together, but ultimately it is up to that market on approval of the release.
