Firefly Online: If I were a Captain…

Screen Shot 2014-07-25 at 09.27.32When I first heard about Firefly online I felt very mixed. Whilst I was pleased that Firefly was getting a new lease of life, I was concerned about how good the game would be and how good it would look. Projects inspired by cancelled shows tend not to have big budgets. Or often get completed.

This teaser hit the interwebs and I have to say, overall, it looks pretty good. It seems to have lots of different elements crammed in there which is no bad thing. The Sims-esque shipbuilding, RPG exploration, turn based combat and some funky flying about in ships. It’s offering fans an awful lot.

Graphically it’s fine. Not amazing but pretty enough. But as the finished product isn’t out yet we may yet see some improvements.

Firefly Online

And the prayers of a grateful generation of Browncoats have been answered. Well, short of getting a new show anyway. Firefly online was announced at San Diego ComicCon (really need to go to that one year) with this launch trailer. It’s a little rough around the edges but with a year until release there’s plenty of time to make it shiny. Sorry, couldn’t help myself…

Expected to be initially just on smartphones and tablets, it may not be the true open experience we have with other MMORPGs but it’s a good start.
