All Browncoats attending this year's San Diego Comic-Con should keep an eye out for Firefly Online, an online RPG developed by Spark Plug Games. Those attending can see a commentated gameplay walkthrough and a new trailer.

Anyone looking to see the game in action will want to go to room 24ABC from 6:30-7:30 p.m. Pacific on July 24. Seats are limited, though, so fans will want to get there early to guarantee a spot.

The RPG is based on Joss Whedon's hit single-season sci-fi TV series Firefly. In Firefly Online, you take control of a ship, a crew, and go on swashbuckling adventures.

Firefly Online is currently set to release on PC, Mac, iOS, and Android. The official website for the game states that it's slated for a release sometime this summer. For those who can't get enough of Firefly, check out the excellent tabletop game based on the show.


Our Take
I'm a big fan of the show and won't decline new Firefly media. I just hope that the game accentuates what people love about the series (cool characters, clever writing, and interesting stories) and less on trying to force fan service. We don't know a lot about the game yet, so I will reserve any judgment until after we see some gameplay and a trailer.
