After years of clamoring for a proper Firefly videogame, Fox Digital Entertainment has answered fan demand with Firefly Online, an online RPG for iOS and Android devices.

“At QMx, we know firsthand how great and powerful a franchise Firefly is and how mighty the Browncoats are,” said Andy Gore, CEO of QMXi and Quantum MechanixInc. “It has always been our mission to bring the Verse to life for our customers in every way possible. The idea of creating an interactive experience where fans can have their own Firefly adventures — well, that’s just too shiny for words.”

Developed by QMXi and Spark Plug Games (makers of Dairy Queen Tycoon for PC/Mac), Firefly Online will see players captaining their own boat (which will be customizable), hiring a crew, and taking on a variety of jobs.

“We are thrilled to be partnering with QMx on Firefly Online,” said Matt McMahon, VP of mobile for Fox Digital Entertainment. “QMx has a long and successful history with Firefly and we couldn’t think of a better partner to make a truly innovative game that will stand up in the Verse and to its passionate fans.”

Firefly Online—the Firefly game nobody actually wants, but that many will stay play because Browncoats’ll take what they can get—launches on iOS and Android smartphones and tablets summer 2014.
