Late last week, Margaret Weis Productions announced that they got the go ahead from Twentieth Century Fox to make a new tabletop game based on the cult hit TV series Firefly. This isn’t the first time that Margaret Weis Productions has made a Firefly game. Back in 2005, they made a tabletop RPG for the release of Serenity.
Meanwhile, over on the digital side of the Firefly universe, DarkCryo’s IndieGoGo fundraiser for their Firefly Universe Online MMORPG his a snag and has been pulled from the site.
After initially being announced in June of 2011, the Firefly-based MMO Firefly Universe Online has been given Fox’s blessing and can now go ahead with funding the project. Tuesday morning, DarkCryo launched their fundraising campaign to fund the development an MMO based on the cult classic TV series.
Back in 2006, developer Multiverse announced that they won the rights to develop a Firefly MMO but went bankrupt at the start of last year. Now DarkCryo has stepped up to work on the game and are looking for $135,000 from IndieGoGo by March 20th to make it happen.
While we haven’t really seen the game in action, there’s no doubt that what Dark Cryo is doing looks impressive.
