    Mobile game developer Jam City and creator Matt Groening have announced an all-new Futurama game is coming to iOS and Android early this summer, called Futurama: Worlds of Tomorrow. The game is being developed with the show's original writers, animators, and cast members, and the new teaser trailer represents the first fully-animated Futurama content since it went off the air in 2013.

    Jam City said that the game will include multiple gameplay devices, including simulation, combat, galactic exploration, and even choose-your-own adventure mechanics. The game has two main settings, including New New York and Space Adventures. In New New York players will focus on the simulation aspects of the game, progressing their character through story quests that include rescuing popular Futurama characters, collecting items, crafting outfits that change abilities, and more.

    Over time, players will begin assembling their own customized Planet Express crew, which they can take to the second part of the game in Space Adventures. There, players will visit various planets and nebulas while fighting enemies in "retro arcade-style combat." During the turn-based Space Adventures combat sections, the game's graphics switch to 16-bit style.


    The developer said that more information about the game will be released sometime soon, and anyone interested can sign up on the game's website to be alerted about its launch. According to the Twitter page for the game, Futurama: Worlds of Tomorrow will arrive sometime in early summer.

    That explains why Netflix has stopped putting up new episodes I guess.

    I don't play iOS games but I do love Futurama. I'm sure game trailers are supposed to be more compelling than that, though. Are micro transactions still a thing in mobile gaming? Hmm.

    I have no strong feelings one way or the other about this announcement.

    Actually I am moderately excited. Hopefully it's more engaging than the disappointing Game of Drones.

    I have this strange feeling, like this could possibly be the best game ever.

    ALL GLORY TO THE HYPNOTOAD

    Yes, it will definitely be the best game ever.

    Head in a Jar Creator was the best app ever. Too bad it's gone. Or does somebody know where it's at?
