Firefly Online allows players to create their own jobs in the Verse


What exactly do you do in Firefly Online you ask? You put on your big boy captain boots (or big girl), do jobs, and generally aim to misbehave. Fear not, Joss Whedon knows about this project even though he’s busy with something called The Avengers. According to the game’s FAQ, Firefly Online is a "multi-user strategic roleplaying game" set in the Firefly universe. You become a ship captain and hire a crew and seek out adventures.

QMX’s Andy Gore told io9 that while there will be a central story along with "many branching stories and standalone adventures players can enjoy. And we plan to have regular DLC updates to add more as time goes on." If that doesn’t entice you, he continues on with player made jobs:

For us, the most exciting thing is player-created "jobs" (the Firefly Online name for quests). There will be a job-creation system where players will be able to craft adventures for other players to partake in. We're looking forward to seeing what people do with that system.

And there will be *a lot* to do beyond quests. You can focus on pimping your ride, getting a new ride, hiring a crew, keeping them happy, trading, crafting, collecting swag, or just flying around the multitude of terraformed worlds of the Verse in the freeform flight simulator.

As a Firefly fan, I hope that this game will deliver. Once live, you’ll be able to play on PC, Mac, iOS, and Android platforms. As of now, Firefly Online is set to be released summer of 2014.
