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.

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

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!

Amen, brother.

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