The game was concieved in 2012, and Apple Entertainment approached Hasbro about developing a Furby game for next-generation consoles. Hasbro liked the idea, so Apple had Elite Games develop the game along with the Hasbro Gaming team. Originally planned to be an Xbox One exclusive, then a Wii U exclusive, Apple finally decided on releasing the game for all eighth-generation consoles, as well as PC and Mac.
Furby: Alive was acclaimed by critics. It has a 95.3% rating on GameRankings and a near-perfect 97/100 on Metacritic. IGN gave it 10/10 saying it was "cute fun in the comfortable place that is the couch in your house". Games Magazine gave it a perfect 100%, saying "Furbies DO creep people out, but that doesn't stop Apple from releasing a cute, fun, adorable game".
