Futurama is returning as a mobile game
Sometimes television shows perish too soon – take Futurama for instance. The Fox show managed to earn six Emmys (along with 12 total Emmy nominations), as well as seven Annie awards and countless others. If you’ve been dying to get more Futurama in your life, we have some good news for you. Fox Digital Entertainment has just signed an agreement with video game developer Wooga to create a new Futurama-themed game for mobile devices.
The game will be called Futurama: Game of Drones, and will send players on a journey with the Planet Express crew as they wage in a trade war agains MomCo. Wooga explains:
The game takes players on a journey with the Planet Express crew as they fight a desperately imbalanced trade war against longtime shipping rival MomCo. While delivering dangerous cargo to hazardous locations under ill-advised circumstances, players connect groups of delivery drones to solve an array of fiendish puzzles as they venture into iconic environments from the FUTURAMA universe.
The Wooga team isn’t the only one working on the new title, though. The new game’s original storyline is written by Dave Grossman, who also wrote Secret of Monkey Island and Telltale Games’ The Wolf Among Us. Grossman will also be working with former Futurama producer Patric Verrone, as well as Jonathon Myers who worked on Game of Thrones: Ascent.
There’s no word on an exact release date quite yet, but we’ll update you as we learn more.
