News shock: Multiverse has announced that soon we’ll be able to play Buffy The Vampire Slayer as a MMOG. The game is going to use a social network (Multiverse Places) and it will be playable both 2D (as a flash game) and 3D.
Corey Bridges from Multivers, explaind that “when the Buffy team finished the television series, they created the perfect launching point for an MMOG where everyone will feel like they’re an important character in the ongoing story.”
The interesting part is that the two game mods (2D and 3D) are somehow connected so that all players will be in just one place. At the end of the year, there will be a beta test.
The bad news is that the Firefly MMOG was canceled because of the better and bigger “mainstream” audience of Buffy.
I do hope we’re going to see Married with Children as an MMORPG/FPS/ADV or Seinfeld as an MMORPG. Yes, I’m joking.
