A Firefly Game?! Don’t be Excited; Be Disappointed [UPDATE]

There's a Firefly game in development that will likely disappoint fans as much as the series' cancellation.

There's a Firefly game in development that will likely disappoint fans as much as the series' cancellation.

As seen on Kotaku, there is an upcoming Firefly game based on one of the greatest television shows of all time.

Can you just imagine flying through the universe, dodging reavers in your very own ship? Maybe it’ll break down all the time just like the Serenity, or maybe we won’t get any of that at all.

A collective gulp was heard around the entire world when all Firefly fans realized through Fox’s press release that the game is going to be “a multi-user, social online role-playing game that will initially be available for smartphones and tablets, including those based on iOS and Android operating systems.”

**Guys… This is ACTUALLY a thing. This is NOT Photoshopped.**

Firefly Online is being developed by QMx Interactive and Spark Plug games, of Dairy Queen Tycoon and Plight of the Zombie fame. So at least we have some assurance that the game will be mediocre and then almost immediately forgotten. *Sigh* Well here’s to hoping that Firefly doesn’t get ruined with this potentially stupid game.

 **I seriously don’t.**

What do you think about this game not being an MMO style space adventure? Does it break your heart, or only make you cry a little? Sound off in the comments down below and maybe I’ll let you come over and watch Serenity with me because it’s a million times better than all of the Star Wars prequels combined!

[UPDATE] I reached out to both Joss Whedon and Spark Plug games about Whedon’s involvement in the game. A I had anticipated, Joss Whedon didn’t tweet back to me AGAIN (I’m beginning the think we’re not best friends) but Spark Plug got back to me and said:

We cannot comment on Joss Whedon’s behalf.

I diplomatic and unencouraging answer at best, but an answer nonetheless. Hopefully Whedon will get back to me and then take me to lunch, but if not we’ll just have to wait to find out more.
