Press that recall button… the entire cast of Firefly will join Firefly Online

“When your miracle gets here, you just pound this button once, it’ll call back both shuttles.”

No power in the verse can stop them. Spark Plug Games and QMx, the developers behind Firefly Online, have confirmed that the entire cast will provide voicework for the game. Nathan Fillion (Captain Malcolm Reynolds), Alan Tudyk (Wash), Adam Baldwin (Jayne), Sean Maher (Simon Tam), and Ron Glass (Shepherd Book) have already recorded their parts. Morena Baccarin (Inara), Jewel Staite (Kayley), and Summer Glau (River Tam) have also signed up and will record their parts soon.

In addition to the crew of Serneity, Michael Fairman (Niska) will be on hand to add a devilish presence to the game. Finally, Kelly Hu (Lady Deathstrike from X2) and Michael Dorn (Worf!) will voice new characters created exclusively for the game.

All this extra voicework (and the character animation to go along with it) means that Firefly Online will miss its originally planned Summer 2014 launch. Instead, the game will now be available for the PC and mobile devices in Spring 2015.

Firefly Online announced for Summer 2014 release on mobile platforms

Get ready for the shiniest Comic-Con news in the last ten years… Fox is bringing back Firefly!

But now for the inevitable betrayal… the franchise is coming back as Firefly Online, a mobile game in development at QMx Interactive and Spark Plug Games. Of all the ruttin’ luck!

Firefly Online is an online role-playing game that will initially be available for iOS and Android devices in Summer 2014. Players will “assume the role of a ship captain as they hire a crew and seek out adventures, all the while trading with and competing against the millions of other players to try to survive in the Verse: find a crew, find a job, keep flying.”

The mechanics of the game are still a secret and without a reader around, they’re going to stay that way. As a mobile game with “unique social features,” Firefly Online could turn out to be closer in style to “FarmVille in Space” than the epic space opera we want it to be. But maybe QMx and Spark Plug Games will surprise us.

You can get a jump on the competition and register your account at the official site for the game now.
