We've got new screens from Family Guy's television-to-game transforming act, showing flashes from each of the playable characters' stories - dad Peter, baby Stewie and dog Brian all get their 15 minutes of combat, stealth and puzzle-solving.
While the ghost of videogames past is entombed in a ton of less-than-brilliant cartoon spin-offs, the involvement of the shows' creators and cast is a positive sign. And the developer's previous experience with Leisure Suit Larry: Magna Cum Laude shows it appreciates how to mix up gameplay styles and minigames - handy with the show's random and unexpected humor.
We'll see if it's a cause to laugh or cry when it arrives on PSP, PS2 and Xbox later in the year.
