Good news, Whedonites – Massively reports a newly-founded developer called Multiverse Foundation has picked up the freely-released source code for the canned Multiverse MMO platform project. The new team is apparently “starting work full-time on the actual MMO creation platform” and will move on securing the rights to Firefly as its first game if fan interest is strong enough.

That’s about it really. EA DICE’s action game Mirror’s Edge is heavily inspired by Joss Whedon’s TV series, Firefly, writes Gamasutra.
“To be very honest, I’m a big Joss Whedon fan, and a lot of the things in the story of the game came from Firefly and [the feature film adaptation] Serenity,” explained senior producer Owen O’Brien.
Any Firefly fans out there? We’re not.
Mirror’s Edge is out on 360, PS3 and PC, sometime in a dystopian future near you.
