Firefly Online Announced

No your eyes do not deceive you. Firefly is coming to your tablets and smartphones in a brand new multi-user, social online role-playing game.

The game itself is called Firefly Online and players will assume the role of a ship's captain and hire a crew to search for adventures! You will cooperate and battle with other players to survive in the verse.

At QMx, we know firsthand how great and powerful a franchise Firefly is and how 
mighty the Browncoats are. 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.

- Andy Gore, CEO of QMXi and Quantum Mechanix Inc.

Here's a few of the features the game will include:

  •  Create a crew, customize a shiny ship and explore the Verse.
  •  Aim to misbehave in space and planet-side adventures.
  •  Pick-up and play anywhere with cross-platform, cross-device game play support.
  •  Engage with unique social features connecting Firefly fans.

 

Being based on the cult classic space western Firefly created by Joss Whedon, the game will no doubt pique the interests of the loyal fans across the globe. There is a possibility of the game expanding onto other platforms in the future and is aiming for a release in 2014. If you'd like more info you can sign up for their newsletter here.

Shiny.

I foresee absolutely zero chance of this being a cheap cash in that ultimately disappoints a large number of passionate fans...

My mum adored this show. I should really watch it but it's off-putting to know it was cancelled.. I don't really want to get into the story to only have to stop. I've done that with too many show ... I want a third season of Reaper, dammit.

It's a shame, its not what people want, they want the TV show back

(and we want it back now)

Even though there's only a single season and a film it's definitely worth watching.

As for this, a game is the last thing I want relating to Firefly/Serenity.

I don't want a game I want more of the tv show, I know the movie wrapped it up fairly well but the show was soo good.

The movie, although great it its own right, was shockingly brutal if you watched it after being in love with the TV series. More Firefly please! This is just FOX trying to cash in on something that they shouldn't have cancelled in the first place. If they cared about the fans they would invest in the show again and honestly the pennies would come rolling in. This game will no doubt be littered with microtrans and all sorts of offputting crap.

I wanted to watch the movie again actually. Haven't seen it in ages.

No not really. It explains near most everything...

Joss Whedeonn has already said he intends to bring the show back once he gets out from his contract with Marvel as their "script monkey".

fillion has said "hell yes!" to the idea, so did the rest of the cast at san diego comic con a year ago

I know Zach Braff got a load of stick for trying to fund his new film through Kickstarter, but frankly they could crowd fund a year or two worth of Firefly within a matter of hours.
Cronos's picture
As far as crowdfunding goes, he's more interested in reviving fucking Dollhouse, because that hasn't already run two seasons longer than it should have.
