fireflyFirefly was a short-lived television show that only lasted about four months. Well, it is making a comeback in a completely new genre. This new genre is the video game industry. That’s right, there will now be a Firefly game and it is coming to iOS and Android-enabled tablets and smartphones. It is slated for a summer release in 2014.

The game’s announcement sheet states that this game will have 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.” They have also classified this game as “a multi-user, social online role-playing game.”

Keep an eye out for this Firefly return in the summer of 2014.

    I think I have the most interesting Firefly story. The first time I was introduced to this series was through Serenity. I am a Sci fi fan so I liked the trailer and wanted to see what it was all about. I went to the theatre watched it and loved it. I liked it so much I even got it HD-DVD when it was released. I really just loved the world of Serenity.
    So one late night I am super tired I cant remember from what I ended up falling asleep on the floor at my house with the TV on. It was on I want to say Sci-fi vhannel but I really don’t remember. So around 2am i’m I hear talking on the TV. It sounds vaguely familiar. I turnover and look at the TV my first thought is hey when did they Start showing Serenity on network TV it hasnt even hit cable yet. So I start half sleep half watching it commercial comes I’m thinking did they do a re edit for TV cause I dont remember this part. It was the Doctor talking about his Raven on the ship. I check the TV guide to see when it came on to get my bearings at what part of the movie I’m at….. but all i see is something talking about a Firefly.
    So half sleep I wake up and watch the next 30 minutes something that has the characters I like of a movie I enjoy totally different from what I have ever seen. At this point never knew there was a TV series or anything other than the movie. When It was done and the credits rolled. I was of to my computer room searching Firefly TV series. OMG there was an entire tv series with the same people made quite a while ago and the show was cancelled after 1 season and it has a giant following and Serenity the movie was the series swan song.
    Amazing…. needless to say I then went on a tear trying to DVR and watch every episode but they played them so shoddy… then the series came to netflix. I watch that series from start to finish about 5 times in a row non stop with a few play of Serenity tossed in.
    Needless to say I am a very big fan and cant wait for more in any medium.
