From their website:

Quote:
On behalf of QMx Interactive and Spark Plug Games, we want to say thank you.

Together with you, our fellow Browncoats from around the world, we’re about to do the impossible. And that makes us mighty.

FIREFLY ONLINE is going to be a game unlike any other and 99.9% of that will be due to fans like you who are already making it so incredibly special. As a registered FIREFLY ONLINE player, you will receive exciting news updates and be entitled to future discounts and exclusive offers. You’ll be the first to know when our new website features are unveiled, such as the blog, where you'll be able to track live progress of the game and ask questions of the developers, and the FFO store, which will be absolutely chock-full of shiny virtual loot (and real loot, too).

It’s going to be one mighty fine shindig, if we do say so ourselves.

Again, we humbly thank you for your support. Keep flying!

- Andy Gore (QMx) and John O’Neill (SPG)

About the game:

Quote:
Firefly Online is a social role playing game (RPG) based on Firefly, Joss Whedon’s cult-hit television series. Firefly Online (FFO) is currently in development for iOS and Android, and may expand to include additional platforms.

In Firefly Online, players 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.

FFO provides a variety of gameplay activities and systems so that players can fully experience life in the Verse.

Assume the role of a ship captain - create a crew and customize a ship
Aim to misbehave in space and planet-side adventures
Cross-platform player experience across devices (pick-up and play from anywhere)
Unique social features connecting Firefly fans
Create a shiny ship and explore the Verse

Only interested if Spark Plug Games' John O'Neill will be appearing as an NPC. Preferably issuing beard related side quests.

Looks like it could be good, but I'll hold off being excited until more info comes out. I hope this is a space sim MMO rather than a business simulator or whatever.

I'm at least interested!

(Supposedly their BSG game has "pay to win" elements, which makes me cautious. Never tried it though.)

Exactly, I'd much rather see a TBS than an MMO but at least its Firefly and maybe this will lead to more. (let's hope) Like an animated series!
