Buffy MMOG Revealed, Firefly MMOG Delayed

A pair of related reports come out of the Virtual Worlds Expo that's just getting underway today: Gamer's Daily News reports plans for an MMOG based on Buffy the Vampire Slayer, though this will be part of "Multiverse Places," a new social virtual world on The Multiverse Network, and the Buffy game carries the unusual description of being "a fully immersive 3D environment or as a Flash-based 2D game, where both types of players can interact." There is related bad news for Joss Whedon fans, as they also report that the focus on this project has taken some momentum from Multiverse's plans for a Firefly MMOG. They say that Whedon and Fox feel the Buffy property has more potential, and is getting more attention at this time, and it is not clear what sort of timeframe they are now projecting for the Firefly game.

it's good to see that the fandom of firefly won't die as it was such a great show, but i'd hate for them to mow down a great show by creating a crappy game just to keep it going. wheedon just needs to put aside his issues and take the show to another network like scifi where it'll be quickly accepted and encouraged.

I don't believe in a lot of things, but I do believe in duct tape.
