It was officially announced by Spark Plug Games that a new online game based on Firefly, Joss Whedon's incredible series, would be released in 2014. For those unfamiliar, Firefly is a show that got abruptly, and unfairly, cancelled. The show is a cult classic amongst a huge army of fans, myself included. There have been countless requests and petitions to try and get the show brought back, to no avail.
Now, before you get overwhelmed with excitement and pass out at the idea of a game based on the epic space western, there is a down side. The game is mobile based. That sound you just heard was Firefly fans everywhere being overwhelmed with disappointment and anger, however, it is better than nothing! I'm extremely happy to see the franchise continue.
Firefly Online is being developed by Spark Plug Games, the studio responsible for a number of mobile games like Dairy Queen Tycoon and Plight of the Zombie. The game will be out next year, and you can sign up here for up to date information.
It is unconfirmed if any of the original cast or crew are involved, bt we'll keep you up to date on everything we find out about this game. Let us know your thoughts in the comments below!
