Firefly Online reveals first gameplay trailer

firefly-bannerIt’s been awhile since we heard anything about Firefly Online, the social RPG that will serve as the semi-official continuation of the Firefly universe.  But this past weekend at SDCC, the developers debuted a brand new trailer, showing all the progress that has been made on the game since its announcement last year.  Read on to see it for yourself.

In case this is the first you’re hearing of Firefly Online, allow me to bring you up to speed.  Being developed by QXMi and Sparkplug Games for iOS and Android phones and tablets, Firefly Online lets take on the role of a ship captain who has to recruit a crew, find paying jobs, and keep flying.  The game will feature ship customization, and the ability to conduct commerce with other players, even if they’re on a different platform.  Originally announced at last year’s SDCC, the developers made a return engagement this past weekend to show off what they’ve been working on.  Check out the video below.

Looking pretty shiny, right? As reported by io9, the game will feature the voice talents of the entire original cast of the show, including Alan Tudyk, even though SPOILER ALERT his character was killed off in the most cruelly Whedonesque way possible. No, Wash is not coming back to life, but Alan Tudyk will be performing “multiple” voices in the upcoming game.  You can register for the game at Firefly Online’s official website, www.keepflying.com.

    Joe was born in a time of war. A console war. Two electronic titans were locked in a heated battle for the living rooms of America. Which titans, you ask? Well, the Fairchild Channel F and the Atari 2600 of course. You see, Joe is old. So many of his favorite games tend to be on the older side as well. But that hasn’t stopped him from developing unhealthy obsessions with such modern franchises as Halo and Mass Effect. Just don’t tell him how long it’s been since the original Metroid was released. His aging heart can’t take the shock.
