Last month, Jam City and TinyCo announced a brand new Futurama mobile app game was on the way called Futurama: Worlds Of Tomorrow. Yesterday, we officially got the launch date for the app, which will be next week on June 29. A new trailer featuring Stephen Hawking, George Takei, Bill Nye, and Neil DeGrasse Tyson shows off the game briefly but is more here for the comedy of science personalities getting angry with each other.
The game looks to be part sim, part exploration, part RPG, and almost entirely freemium. I mean, seriously, look at the way it's designed. It resembles games from Family Guy and The Simpsons where you get some features but need to grind or pay for the rest. You can't really blame Fox and whoever else may have ties to the property for wanting to make a quick buck off of it, but considering they're keeping the details of what you'll actually do in the game a secret until launch is mighty suspect. Your best best is that you'll be given a few free missions to do before being required to pay to make the game more interesting, but we shall see how they handle it.
You can download the game next Thursday for iOS and Android phones.
