In the greatest news Browncoats have likely heard in a long time, yesterday’s New York Toy Fair revealed that the chance to captain your very own Firefly was coming.
The game (simply titled Firefly: The Game) is slated for release in “Fall 2013” – that’s Spring 2013 for Australians.
A captain’s goal was simple: find a crew, find a job, keep flying.

Fans of Firefly (if you’re not one, you should be) will be able to captain their own Firefly-class transport ship, travelling around the ‘Verse with their own crew, dealing with Badger-type employers, Alliance folk, and of course, Reavers. And it just gets better – Gale Force Nine, the company behind this game, intends to turn this into a series of games.
Gale Force Nine was behind ‘Spartacus: A Game of Blood and Treachery’, as well accessories, miniatures and terrain for various miniature games.
So who’s excited to head out to the Big, Bad ‘Verse?
