As a Firefly fan, I am quite excited by this! The official trailer for the Firefly online game has been released. Now until today I only had heard there was something in the works, but the video does make it look nice and shiny! So far it’s being released for Windows PCs, Mac OS, iOS and Android.
I’m not normally one for online games of this kind. You can normally find me played FPS or generally games where I get to cut people up. But I think this might be worth giving a go. As a strategic roleplaying game there’s a small chance I might not entirely suck at it! From the trailer, it looks like you can custom build and upgrade your ship, characters and choose whether to create mayhem or simply be a leaf on the wind and go from job to job. If you’re a fan of the series or not, I’m sure it will be quite enjoyable to play.
My only hope is that it has the Joss Whedon style comedy aspect to it with references to some of the little things that fans will get a kick out of. So far from social media comments I’ve read, a lot of people think it’s going to be a flop. But depending on price and release date (which hasn’t been announced yet), I might consider getting involved as it looks like a bit of fun and it’s Firefly. After years of waiting for another series of some sort, it’s nice to have a little piece of the verse to enjoy.
