Firefly Online is a multi-user strategic roleplaying game set in the universe of Joss Whedon’s cult classic TV show – Firefly. Players take on 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 like themselves, doing whatever it takes to survive in the Verse. It is designed for both desktop and mobile OSes and will allow users to play the same character across devices.
Social Features: Firefly Online is a single player game, supported by social features that give you the opportunity to connect with friends and fellow Firefly Online users in new and unique ways. Players can exchange items they don't need through mail systems. If a player's ship breaks down, others can come to their aid. Players can even create jobs (quests) for one another and post them to a community board.
Turn-Based Combat: You control your entire crew during combat, maneuvering them to safer cover, working strategically to make the most of the terrain and your crew’s abilities. The presentation is entirely 3D, with 3D characters, objects and environments. At the end of combat, you’re rewarded with experience, as well as some assorted loot from your fallen enemies. This loot can be used, sold or parted out for materials to make your own custom-built weapons and trade goods.
Ship Customization: Customization allows you to tweak the appearance of the interior and exterior of your ship. You can show off your personality with new paint jobs and a variety of interior décor options. It’s even possible to buy real world goods and get digital versions for your cabin or galley. Ship customization can also have an impact on gameplay. The first ship you own will have limited crew and cargo capacity. New bunks can be built, and interior space can be expanded to accommodate more crew, more freight and more passengers. Even the engines can be upgraded to be more reliable and faster.
Diverse Options: The universe of Firefly is a violent place, and many jobs will involve combat - but there are almost always ways to talk or scheme your way out of a fight. If you’re the type who’d rather negotiate, you’ll want to focus on crew that have savvy in that direction. A registered companion, for example, will offer options other than gunplay.
