DarkCryo are pressing on with Firefly Universe Online, and there’s now a crowdsourcing effort in place on Indiegogo. They’re looking for two hundred thousand Canadian dollars - that’s nearly exactly the same figure in US dollars, and about €148k.
There’s a video on the Indiegogo page, which has game footage, and also one of the strangest voiceovers I’ve heard in a while - a sort of computer modulated mid-American accent with odd pauses from time to time.
They’ve now moved to a line of “inspired by” Firefly rather than using the IP directly, which will probably float better, but I’m still very sceptical about it getting anywhere. I am, however, impressed by DarkCryo’s tenacity on this.
So go ahead and have a look, contribute if you reckon it’s worthwhile, and we’ll see what happens. I’ll be tracking this for a while yet before I decide whether or not I want to put some money into it.
