Firefly Online Game (RPG)

FOX and Spark Plug Games announce a while back that they would be working together to bring Firefly fans and members of the Brown Coats a game based on the Firefly the TV series and Serenity the movie called Firefly Online (FFO)

Information on the QMx website which is hosting most of the info and updates regarding the game states:  
Firefly Online is a strategic online role playing game (RPG) based on Firefly, Joss Whedon’s cult-hit television series. Firefly Online (FFO) is currently in development... more details regarding the game can be found here.

Now, many fans, myself included, were excited about the concept of the game and others were terrified, wondering if it will live up to the expectations of the huge fan base.  Well one thing to add some points to the developer of the game is that they were actually able to get some of the original cast members to do their character voice overs!  Which is really cool, and the actors were more than happy to do it.  Check out the videos below of Nathan Fillion as Captain Malcom Reynolds and Adam Baldwin as Jayne Cobb.   They are short, but you can see how happy and excited each one is to reenact their role, if only for a video game.

For those who may have never seen the FireFly TV series, then definitely check it out on Netflix or online.  For those fans out there, what do you think of a Firefly RPG game?  Let us know in the comment section below!
