Firefly Online “Social Online Role Playing Game”
Posted by Firefly MMO News [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 18 July 2013, 5:28 am
There’s been an announcement at San Diego Comic-Con that a Firefly game will be released in 2014. There’s a website, and a video. It says it’s “currently in development for iOS and Android, and may expand to include additional platforms.” It offers a few examples of gameplay: Assume the role of a ship captain - create [...]


Firefly Universe Online Seeks Funding
Posted by Firefly MMO News [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 6 February 2013, 9:15 am
DarkCryo are pressing on with Firefly Universe Online, and there’s now a crowdsourcing effort in place on Indiegogo. They’re looking for two hundred thousand Canadian dollars - that’s nearly exactly the same figure in US dollars, and about €148k. There’s a video on the Indiegogo page, which has game footage, and also one of the strangest [...]


Fox may have not given DarkCryo any ‘well wishes’
Posted by Firefly MMO News [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 7 January 2013, 4:28 am
The internet has been agog at the news that Fox have, miraculously, given DarkCryo the go-ahead for the Firefly Universe Online project. I’m sad - but not particularly surprised - to say it’s not true. Owen Good of Kotaku has investigated, and found that it’s at least connected with The Yes Men, an anti-capitalist activist [...]


Fox Take Action
Posted by Firefly MMO News [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 7 August 2012, 4:40 am
It looks like Fox finally decided to take notice of Firefly Universe Online, according to Whedonesque. I don’t think anybody’s surprised by that, and it’s a wonder it didn’t happen sooner. They’re currently billing it as the “project formerly known as Firefly Universe Online” - and I suspect it’s only a matter of time before [...]


Firefly News Roundup
Posted by Firefly MMO News [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 12 June 2012, 10:54 am
The Firefly Universe Online game from DarkCryo seems to still exist. I do wonder why this hasn’t disappeared yet; they’ve gone so far as to have illustrations of Mal and River there - computer generated graphics, now, not photographs - and are making heavy use of the brand name. There’s even a Facebook Page, and [...]


Notch talking about Firefly
Posted by Firefly MMO News [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 28 March 2012, 3:18 pm
Legendary game designer Notch (of Minecraft fame, and once of Wurm Online) made a throwaway comment about making a Firefly game. Or at least playing in one. You’d think SOMEONE would take on the licence and make a decent go of it…


Multiverse Closes; Code Continues
Posted by Firefly MMO News [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 8 January 2012, 4:36 pm
So news came through in early January that Multiverse, developers of the Firefly MMO - and the Buffy one as well - had closed down. And the same day, word came that the code had been picked up by the newly formed, volunteer-run Multiverse Foundation. Who, at time of writing, have a website with the [...]


Rogue Firefly MMO
Posted by Firefly MMO News [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 27 June 2011, 5:57 am
It’s been nearly three years since there was any movement on the Firefly MMO. Multiverse seem to have forgotten about it completely. Now, however, there’s movement elsewhere entirely. In the proper Browncoat spirit, there’s an independent MMO being developed, and they’re hoping to get the rights from Fox and Mutant Enemy. This is Firefly Universe [...]


Firefly MMO Delayed
Posted by Firefly MMO News [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 4 September 2008, 4:44 am
It’s been ages since we had any news, and now that it arrives, it’s not good. Buried several paragraphs deep in a press release about a Buffy The Vampire Slayer MMO from Multiverse is this line: In related news, Fox’s plans for the development of the previously announced Firefly MMOG have been delayed, but Fox looks [...]


Massively: 5% Chance of Firefly MMO News
Posted by Firefly MMO News [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 14 July 2008, 2:13 pm
Massively’s E3 Bingo posits a 5% chance of news on the Firefly MMO. Quote: It’s within the realm of possibility that they [Multiverse] might use this event as an opportunity to announce forward progress on the project, but it’s kind of doubtful.


Stephen Brust writes Firefly Novel
Posted by Firefly MMO News [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on Fri, 08 Feb 2008 12:28:28 +0000

Stephen Brust (a notable and excellent fantasy author) has written a Firefly novel, titled My Own Kind of Freedom. It’s being distributed under a creative commons license, and you can get it on his site, dreamcafe.com. I’m just about to start reading it; I’ll let you know how it looks.




Google to Publish Firefly MMO?
Posted by Firefly MMO News [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on Mon, 05 Nov 2007 13:10:02 +0000

Of all the people who might publish the Firefly MMO, Google would not have occurred to me. But according to a story on massively.com, they might. Apparently, Multiverse and Google have cut a deal regarding virtual worlds. Even if the big G are not directly involved in the game, some of their infrastructure will probably be used.




Possible Second Firefly Movie
Posted by Firefly MMO News [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on Fri, 05 Oct 2007 19:07:37 +0000

There are rumours beginning to circulate about a second Firefly movie. Is there a chance of Serenity 2? On pure numbers, I’d say there’s no chance. But based on the way Firefly keeps on coming back, I’d say it’s definitely possible. We’ll see what happens.




Serenity Found
Posted by Firefly MMO News [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on Wed, 03 Oct 2007 06:27:52 +0000

There’s a new book out, called Serenity Found. Among other essays about the Firefly Universe, it contains one by Corey Bridges. I quote:

The Virtual ?Verse. Multiverse co-founder Corey Bridges (no relation) on how the ?Firefly? MMORPG project got started and what would be needed to make it a kick-ass game.


I think that Browncoats will get behind that - after all, who wouldn?t want to assemble their own crew to undertake missions together, to build a life for themselves around their ship? Or what about other scenarios that are only glimpsed in the show?




Firefly Miis
Posted by Firefly MMO News [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on Thu, 23 Aug 2007 07:52:01 +0000

Tired of waiting for progress on the Firefly MMO, Tim Agne has gone to the trouble of creating Miis for the characters in Firefly. They’re pretty accurate!




Multiverse Client Released
Posted by Firefly MMO News [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on Sat, 04 Aug 2007 11:54:30 +0000

The Multiverse Client, on which the Firefly MMO will run, has been released. There’s an article on GigaOM portraying it as a competitor for Second Life (not quite accurate, that), and also the official press release. Games called Dark Horizons and Forgotten Legends have launched with it, and two called Force of Arms and LunarQuest are noted as “coming soon”. There’s no mention of Firefly in the Multiverse release, but it’s mentioned in the GigaOM article.




Multiverse Platform Interview
Posted by Firefly MMO News [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on Wed, 20 Dec 2006 07:42:05 +0000

Matt Mihaly has put up another interview with Corey Bridges. This one deals more with the Multiverse platform than anything else, but Firefly gets a look in at several points. Matt’s is an excellent blog if you’re interested in MMOs, by the way.




Corey Bridges Interviewed at Gaming Angels
Posted by Firefly MMO News [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on Wed, 24 Jan 2007 08:42:21 +0000

There’s a new interview with Corey Bridges up at Gaming Angels. He’s commenting on the strength of the existing fanbase, and the likelihood of encountering characters from the show in the game.




Raph Koster
Posted by Firefly MMO News [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on Tue, 13 Feb 2007 14:45:59 +0000

It’s been widely rumoured (but not confirmed) that Raph Koster (or his new company, Areae) is going to be involved in some way with the Firefly MMO. There’s a newly published interview with him at RealMMO. He doesn’t say anything about Firefly, but it makes interesting reading all the same.




Home on the Strange Comic Strip
Posted by Firefly MMO News [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on Wed, 21 Feb 2007 09:21:15 +0000

A Firefly MMO related strip this week from Home on the Strange.




Wiki
Posted by Firefly MMO News [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on Tue, 06 Mar 2007 20:38:08 +0000

Gaming site TenTonHammer has put a page on their wiki concerning the Firefly MMO.




Serenity Recognised as Best Science Fiction Movie
Posted by Firefly MMO News [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on Tue, 03 Apr 2007 08:08:54 +0000

The BBC have an article up, saying that Serenity has topped of poll of SFX readers, beating Star Wars to the place as number one scifi film ever. It’s very nice to see that kind of recognition hitting the mainstream media, and I know from a number of conversations I’ve had with non-fans that it’s getting the name of the movie out there in a way that ordinary advertising never could. It was also one of the BBC’s most read articles for April 2nd!




Interview with Ron Meiners
Posted by Firefly MMO News [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on Wed, 18 Apr 2007 07:47:40 +0000

Gaming site Ten Ton Hammer have published an interview with Ron Meiners, director of developer relations at Multiverse. Much of the interview concerns the Multiverse platform and other games being released on it, but there are a few snippets concerning the Firefly MMO:

We asked Meiners whether Multiverse had found a developer yet. ?No, not yet,? he said. ?We?re still talking to people and shopping around.?

and:

Concerning the connections with Fox and getting any of the voice actors for the game, Meiners said that everything was still just being looked at and worked on. He seemed confident that Fox would eventually get back to them, but it would just take time.

… which aren’t the most positive pieces of news we could hear, but at least things are still in progress. Hopefully we’ll hear more soon.




Another Interview with Ron Meiners
Posted by Firefly MMO News [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on Wed, 23 May 2007 12:12:30 +0000

There’s an interview with Multiverse’s Ron Meiners up on Warcry. Unfortunately, all he’s saying about the Firefly MMO is:

We’re really excited by this, but I can’t really say anything about it now. The fan reception has been awesome, but we don’t have anything to announce at this time.

I’m getting a bit impatient for some news at this stage, I have to say…




Multiverse Funding Increase
Posted by Firefly MMO News [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on Fri, 08 Jun 2007 12:33:09 +0000

Accrding to a post on 3pointD.com, Multiverse, who are to produce the Firefly MMO, have recently secured more than $4 million in funding. That should go a long way towards finding a Firefly development team…
