Dark Horse is Launching a New Firefly Comic Series
For all the talk about movie sequels and Netflix TV series revivals, we haven’t had any more Firefly. But, as we all know, you can’t stop the signal and no power in the verse can stop Firefly. Browncoats looking for more Firefly will be getting that from an upcoming comic series published by Dark Horse Comics.
Firefly Online is Coming in 2014… To Mobile Devices
Remember Firefly Universe Online, the Fox authorized MMO based in the Firefly Universe? That’s not what’s coming in 2014. Instead, Fox announced at Comic Con that Firefly would be coming to the video game verse with Firefly Online.
It’s not a full blown MMO, however. It’s called a “social online role-playing game” that is going to be published for iOS and Android devices. Yes, we’re getting a Firefly mobile game. Is it just me or does every force in the verse work against us?
New Firefly Tabletop RPG Coming as Soon as Spring While the MMO Hits a Roadblock
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.
Now on IndieGoGo: The Firefly MMO (Now with Fox’s Blessing)
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.
