Thursday July 18, 2013 3:30 PM PDT by Jordan Golson
Fox Digital Entertainment revealed that a RPG based on the cult TV series Firefly will be coming to iOS next summer, reports Polygon.

The game, which will be officially licensed, is in development and will have players recruiting a crew and leading missions, while trading goods with other players. Gamers will be able to customize their games and play with friends across both iOS and Android platforms.

"At QMx, we know firsthand how great and powerful a franchise Firefly is and how mighty the Browncoats are," said Andy Gore, CEO of QMXi and Quantum Mechanix Inc. "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."
Players interested in Firefly Online can sign up for more information on the game's website at KeepFlying.com.

I'm not disagreeing with you, i love Firefly and think it probably should be laid to rest, but Star Trek is a great example of a failed TV series coming back to life a decade after its original failed TV outing, so people never give up hope.



I'm a huge Star Trek fan but with the current revival, Star Trek for me exists from TOS to Nemesis. JJ Abrams made a couple of movies called "Star Trek" with characters sharing names from TOS but it was far from Star Trek.

Failed? How do you figure it's a failed series? The Next Generation, Deep Space 9, and Voyager, they each ran for 7 seasons. That's 21 seasons of Star Trek shows (plus the 3 seasons of the original ST series). Hardly a failed series.

Firefly, on the other hand, was a failed series, having lasted only 1 season (and barely that at only 14 episodes). Which is very unfortunate, because it was an AWESOME show. It really deserved to go on, based on its quality in my opinion, but apparently it just wasn't profitable enough for the studio to keep it going.

Personally, I'd much rather see them get the original cast back together and revive the show, than to play a game about it a decade+ after its demise. Sadly, that will probably never happen.

Futurama
Firefly
Arrested Development

Networks are their own worst enemies.

Or was that Fox, Fox, and Fox...

Firefly had its time and should be left on the shelf from now on.

Please, it's over. Just let it rest in peace. This just seams like wringing more money from the show's corpse.

The original Star Trek only lasted 3 seasons of it's 5 year voyage. I think the series you're listing are what Mr-Stabby means by coming back to life.

Didn't Netflix bring back Arrested Development? Maybe they'll revive Firefly...

I'm with you on the game though-- why reward Fox for killing a quality show by buying a second rate game? The quote in the article makes me cringe...

It wasn't meant to be 100% accurate. It's the future, language evolves. Also, none of the characters on the show were Asian, it makes sense if their curses would be messed up, and it was a way to show how in the future China has replaced western culture as the major cultural force.


Also, they didn't want to put actual curses on broadcast TV, regardless of language. Gorram frackin' TV!

+1. The new ST films missed the point of what ST is. Frankly I can't understand why they're so well revered.

Meh - give me another series of Firefly. No, forget that; it's been too long. A sequel to Serenity would be nice though.

Absolutely. So much that I hated in the new films. The lens flare, the camera shake, the Nokia phone in the first one, the awful soundtrack; the fact that James Kirk was born in flippin' space, the Spock/Uhura romance, the bad-guy who was as scary as a damp dish-towel, the crazy plot point (what, some half-cut womaniser immediately becomes Captain of the Enterprise, because it's 'in his blood'?!). Yeah, great. I'll pilot the next NASA space-shuttle, even though I'm an aggressive drunk with no redeeming qualities. But not to worry: my father was a pilot, so I'm suited for it!

Not to mention that bloody scene where they're diving through a planet's atmosphere in their suits (beyond ridiculous), or how they shoe-horned Leonard Nimoy in there. I knew he was a sell-out from the ballad of 'Bilbo Baggins', but come on, Nimoy. Have some self-respect, Star Trek is what you're known for.

I won't even get started on the 'new' one.

Star Trek is about humanity, mainly; how we deal with it, how we evolve, how we better ourselves. It's about exploration, the final frontier FFS. It's beautiful sci-fi, and he turned it into a poor action film set in space. And the critics loved it. "Star Trek is cool again!", they croon, haphazardly shoving fistfuls of popcorn into their gormless guts. Yes, God forbid watching a film that inspires you, or makes you think a little.

UGH. I should stop ranting now, I'm going to give myself a headache. I find the new films nothing short of abhorrent. Thanks for ruining my childhood, Abrams.


Ah, yes. The ever popular "It's not what I grew up with, so it sucks!" rant. We Star Wars fans are quite familiar with that particular screed. :rolleyes:
