Universal Pictures signs Indiagames to develop 'Serenity' game

MUMBAI: Indiagames has signed a worldwide licensing agreement (excluding Japan) with Universal Studios Consumer Products Group to create mobile wireless content based on the Hollywood studio major's upcoming film Serenity.

Indiagames will develop and publish a Serenity Space Shooter title, allowing game play as Captain Malcolm of the Serenity spaceship in a top-view flying game.

Written and directed by Joss Whedon, (Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Angel), Serenity is a futuristic action-adventure film scheduled for release in the Unites States and Canada on 30 September.

Players are challenged to make it to the planet Miranda; to get to the bottom of the conspiracy locked inside River's mind-the conspiracy that the Alliance wants to cover up. The game allows players to fight their way through Alliance vessels, ground attacks and Reavers, while enjoying action levels interspersed with dexterity oriented docking levels. Players must pick up rebels (who will pay credits to be transported from one space port to the next) and use their credits to upgrade the Serenity spaceship.

"We have wanted to do more business with Universal for a long time and we are really excited to see this through," states Indiagames CEO Vishal Gondal.

"We believe that Indiagames is the best partner to translate the fun, adventure and rich visual universe of Serenity from the big screen to the handset," said Universal Studios Consumer Products Group V-P of Media Licensing and Strategy Jeremy Laws.

Earlier, Indiagames had also developed wireless content based on Joss Whedon's famous television series, Buffy the Vampire Slayer.

Damn yokels can't even tell a transport ship ain't got no guns on it.

I'm assuming these games will note be very true to the actual Serenity verse. Fighting their way anywhere in Serenity would be pretty difficult. Unless these "upgrades" are weapons oriented. Which wouldn't be too cool IMO. I like our weaponless Serenity.

Well, I'd be happy to have a Serenity game. It'd be even cooler if they back-engineered it for the original Nintendo console and made it like Gunsmoke! ;D

Perhaps this is a stupid question but doesn't "mobile wireless technology" mean mobile phones? Not a video game as such?

I suppose, it is a "game", though I do suppose "video" may be a bit much...

I would like a Serenity video game, it'd be fun to play as the characters, even if it isn't really tru to the Serenity verse. And anyway that means more publicity!

I think it would be really really cool if they made it just like "Max Payne". It would be so freakin' cool to have Mal jump into a room in bullet time like Max Payne. Or don't even have bullet time, just have it third person shooter like Max Payne. Let's see if I can have every sentence include "Max Payne", yep.

That there's got some serious SPOILERS. PLEASE warn people on the thread title!

Thanks!

And yes, I'm fairly horrified by the idea of a top-down shooter :)

Thanks! I really don't want to become a spoiler-phobe - that can drive me nuts - but I know there are people out there that do care.

And yes, it's a spoiler. I will say no more about how spoilery it is (I've seen the movie), but I'd recommend you remove the question mark, too.

Thanks again regardless - very much appreciated.

Sounds lame.

Good thing we got a EV Nova Total Converson in the works, that will be much more true to the Firefly 'verse.

I always thought that someone should do a total conversion of Freelancer. I think that would be very cool, and true to the Serenity/Firefly 'verse.
I really want a Firefly model in Freelancer :-)

oh f**k yes! Freelancer Serenity. Dammit, I want to devote all my time and recources to doing that now. Geh! It would be so easy! or not... OMG! WANT!!!!!


*ahem* anyway. my reaction to the cell-phone game idea is pretty much the same to Mal's reaction to discovering River in the box.

"....huh..."

See, I'd want a game that would be designed for an actual game system (PS2, whatever). I don't play games on my computer. That's designed for internetting and writing and stuff.

Hate to be a pain the the reactor, but the plural of the word "Cannon" is, in fact, "Cannon."

Sorry, mom was an English teacher...

I agree with the Freelancer idea,. However, in Freelancer it was like "clickhere to get a job, clickhere to check out a bar." you never got to playas the actual character. I think they should have controls more like 007:Everything or Nothing. The ps2 wouldn't be able to handle the game. Only the PS3 or XBOX2 would have the kind o power were talkin about. AAhAAA!There's the PS3's Halo killer right there. Someone's got to be a software designer at this site. If you are get to work, but don't sell us all out by going to Microsoft Games only. Everyone deserves the right to play a game like this.
