I swear by my pretty floral bonnet, I will buy this game. Joss Whedon's western space opera finally gets a video game to call its own.

Based on the universe created by Joss Whedon, Firefly Online is a social role playing game (RPG). It's currently in development for iOS and Android, but may expand to include additional platforms at a later date.

In Firefly Online (FFO), players will assume the role of a ship captain with the goal of hiring a crew to seek out adventures. Meanwhile they will be competing -- and trading-- with millions of other players to try to survive in the Verse.

FFO plans to provide a variety of gameplay activities including assuming the role of a ship captain and all that entails: hiring a crew, customizing your ship, and engaging in both space and planet-side adventures.

The cross-platform game will be available in 2014.
