'Firefly' is returning to the big screen in the form of a new video game. For those of you who thought this space Western television series would never return, the game is launching for Mac and PC, enabling you to cast your own ship and crew.

Firefly Online is the creation of Quantum Mechanix with two criteria in mind for the game: the company has to love Firefly and its fans, and the company has to have strong development chops, meaning the game has to be great independently of the show.

The game will feature a 'Free Firefly Engine' that will give you a reactive 3D user interface including "in-universe guides," allowing your character to interact with planets all in 3D viewing. This feature is still being developed but is expected to look astounding.
