Train2Game News: Firefly game announced

FireFlyTrain2Game students who are fans of the SciFi series, Firefly will be happy to know that a game based on the cult series has been announced.

Firefly Online was announced for Android and iOS at the San Diego Comic Con by Fox Digital Entertainment. The game will be released in summer 2014.

The game is in development at QMXi and Spark Plug Games, which handled the iOS port of Puzzle Quest 2.

When announcing the game, Fox said “Firefly Online will let 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.”

Once you have assembled a crew, you can customise your ship, take part in space and planet-side missions, use “unique social features” to interact with fellow Firefly fans and make use of cross-platform, cross-device support.
