The cast of Firefly reunites once again, except they're not joining up for another TV series. This time, Summer Glau and the entire original cast of Firefly will reprise their characters and lend their voice talent to "Firefly Online", an online strategic roleplaying game set in the universe of Joss Whedon's Firefly.
The shiny news was announced in the game developer's panel at San Diego Comic-Con on July 24, 2014 (Yes, the day of Summer's 33th Birthday) and reported at io9.com
From Firefly Online Game:
Firefly Online (FFO) is an online strategic roleplaying game set in the universe of Joss Whedon's cult classic TV show - Firefly.
Players take on the role of a ship captain as they hire a crew and lead missions, while trading with and competing against millions of other players like themselves. Much like the crew of Serenity, the Firefly-class transport ship featured in the original show, players must do whatever it takes to survive in the Verse: find a crew, find a job and keep flying.
Currently in development for PC, Mac, iOS and Android. For more info or to register go to www.keepflying.com.
We also have now a very shiny first teaser trailer. No sign of Summer's voice in the video but hopefully she will be featured in future trailers. And yes, it's Ron Glass's voice at the begining. Also, there's a surprise. A Big Damn One. You'll see..
Firefly Online Gameplay Trailer #1: If I Were a Captain
'Firefly Online' was developed by Sparkplug games, in partnership with Quantum Mechanix and Fox Digital Entertainment. It will be released on PC, Mac, iOS, and Android.
UPDATE: Sorry, folks. The website got so much traffic we crashed the server, then the ISP. The ISP was, needless to say, not too happy. So we're moving everything over to an Amazon server. Should all be shiny soon.
As always, We will keep you informed on the development and release of this exciting project through our news section and dedicated forum thread
Who is excited by the possibility of hearing more dialogue and plot-development from THE cast?
