Fox Digital Entertainment, QMx Interactive and Spark Plug Games have just announced that they are in development for Firefly Online. Based on the cult TV series Firefly, the game will be released as a multi-user, social online roleplaying game. It will initially be available for iOS and Android smartphones and tablets.
So what’s the skinny?
Well for starters, you get to play as a ship captain that has to hire a crew and take on missions. You’ll also be trading, as well as competing with all the other players out there. According to the official press release, “players must do whatever it takes to survive the Verse: find a crew, find a job and keep flying.”
The game is scheduled for a summer 2014 release, with QMx Interactive’s CEO Andy Gore quoted as saying, “It has always been our mission to bring the Verse to life for our customers in every way possible. The idea of creating an interactive experience where fans can have their own Firefly adventures — well, that’s just too shiny for words.”
