The Futurama series, winner of a 2002 Emmy Award for Best Animated Program, has been recreated on the gaming console. The game has been developed in close cooperation with the people behind the TV series and is presented as a 3D platform game with an authentic cartoonish look. All famous characters make an appearance and the story is guided with animations and original advertisements with the look and feel of the TV series.
Mom has bought Planet Express Deliveries from Professor Farnsworth and has gained control over planet earth. It's up to the player's crew (Fry, Leela, Dr. Zoidberg, Bender, ...) to stop her evil plans.
The FMVs from this game can be viewed on the DVD Futurama: The Beast with a Billion Backs. The videos are made into one full episode entitled the "The Lost Adventure". The episode is a bonus feature; it even features commentary.
Futurama was initially planned as a point & click adventure for PC and GBA, but was later changed to a platformer, due to demands from Matt Groening.
