It’s Always Sunny In Philadelphia is the best sitcom of the 21st Century. It’s just a straight up fact, bro. And now the escapades of Dennis, Mac, Charlie, Frank and Dee are coming to your smartphone in a mobile game from East Side Games and FoxNext Games.
The game is called Always Sunny: The Gang Goes Mobile and will be released later this year for iOS and Android, probably in time for Series 13 in September.
It appears the game will be centred around a scheme to help Frank launder money with help from the gang. The description reads: “Frank’s come into a bunch of dirty money he needs to hide from the feds, so he recruits The Gang to do his dirty work. While Mac, Dennis, and Dee bicker and backstab over laundering schemes, Frank tasks Charlie with hiding the clean cash in a safe place.”
The initial promotional materials for the game also feature a handwritten/drawn note from Charlie, similar to his incredible Nightman lyric sheet from Series 3.
If you don’t want Charlie’s illiteracy to screw you again; here’s a helpful translation:
“Cat needs a friend
Charlie burned money in a dumpster and is sad
Cat inside the phone
Please can you help
The press release for the game encourages players to “team up with The Gang: Mac, Dennis, Charlie, Dee and Frank, in their favorite gags, storylines, and iconic moments from the series, indulging in new and ridiculous money-making schemes to tap and unlock their way to more schemes and collect fan-favorite characters.”
Fan favourite characters, you say? Can we expect The McPoyles and Rickety Cricket to make an appearance?
While all this sounds fun, we sort of wish the devs were giving us the chance to play the Techpocalypse smartphone game from the classic Charlie Rules The World episode.
East Side Games have created games for other TV shows before, including the Trailer Park Boys: Greasy Money title, which appears quite similar in nature to the forthcoming Always Sunny release. The developers are encouraging would-be Paddy’s Pub patrons to sign up to be first to play the game.
