‘Futurama’ Returns as a Mobile Game

It’s back to the year 3000 again for Fry and the gang from Futurama.

The cult TV fan favorite returns as a mobile game, Futurama: Worlds of Tomorrow, from JamCity. The plan is to have the game expand with new material every week, and the show’s writers and cast — last seen with new episodes in 2013 — are reunited for the game.

The game, available in the summer, is free, with add-ons that cost $1 to $50.

JamCity, formerly known as SGN Games, looks for games with a “huge grassroots following,” says company co-founder Josh Yguado, “Fans can’t get Futurama on TV. This is the place to continue the story and interact with your favorite characters.”

JamCity, best known for the games Cookie Jam and Panda Pop, also has games based on the TV and movie properties Family Guy and The Avengers. JamCity games have been played over 25 billion times, the company says.
