Futurama is coming back as a mobile game

Published

In the words of one Philip J. Fry...

 

Two years after its second cancellation, Fox has announced that Futurama will return!... in the form of a mobile game.

Fox Digital Entertainment will partner with games developer Wooga (creators of a whole bunch of addictive apps) to create FUTURAMA: Game of Drones.

The game will see players make "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."

So - a puzzle game plus arcade flight sim? Add to the mix a story written by Dave Grossman - the pen behind the superb Secret of Monkey Island - Jonathon Myers (Game of Thrones: Ascent) and Patric M. Verrone, and you've got yourself a mean-looking app.

Who knows - maybe it'll be good enough to see Fox ditch The Simpsons in favour of bringing back Fry and co.

Right guys? Please?
