The Simpsons: Tapped Out has been one of the most successful mobile games in recent years. So it’s no surprise to learn that Futurama, another TV show created by The Simpsons creator Matt Groening, will also become a mobile game.
Today Wooga and Fox Digital Entertainment announced a partnership in which Berlin-based Wooga will create a new Futurama mobile game.
Wooga said in a blog post that the game, Futurama: Game of Drones, will take “players on 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.”
Futurama: Game of Drones has an original story written by Dave Grossman (The Secret of Monkey Island, The Wolf Among Us), Jonathon Myers (Game of Thrones: Ascent), and Patric M. Verrone, a member of the original Futurama writing team.
