Is the game canon? And when does it take place in the series? It clearly happens after Leela's homeworld, but I'm not sure about anything after that. Are the comics canon, and does it take place after those? I was under the impression that it was supposed to be the end of Futurama, (and a very final end at that).

Personal opinion: neither is canon.

Official statement from David X Coehn/Matt Groening: n/a

It's easier just to pretend that the game does not exist.

It's just a fun figment of your imagination

In this case, Canon means "the offical timeline."

The question is whether we should consider the events of the game to have actually 'happened.'

So, the game was probably a fever dream of Nibbler's, or something.

Yes, isn't it a classical piece by Pachelbel? What?

Oh, in that case why does it matter if the game was made after the series has finished on television?

IMO, the newer comics are canon because the series has been cancelled, but up until about issue 12 they weren't. I don't think the game is ment to be canon, because it was in development before the series ofically ended.

Neither is canon, in my opinion. I think that the game was, as it's been said, just for fun. The comics are sort of their own series of events that have nothing to really do with many of the major events in the animated show. Characters from the series are sometimes mentioned (in fact, Leela's parents were rather prominent in, I believe, issue #11), but other than that, it isn't all that canon.

I also don't think the game is canon. I think its just supposed to be a fun game to play.

I don't see the game as official, but I like to think the comics are a continuation of the series

Okay, there's about 10 or so definitions, Gleno, so I'll just keep to the most relevent ones... that being the second one here:

1. A group of literary works that are generally accepted as representing a field: “the durable canon of American short fiction” (William Styron).

2. The works of a writer that have been accepted as authentic: the entire Shakespeare canon.
 
And we all know about the term canon because we're all member's of a secret anti-Gleno organisation... it's harvest time, my son, and we are going to keel you...

Which is a roundabout way of saying coinicidence, I guess.  tongue

I only consider the programme to be "official", what others think is up to them though, it isn't as if it matters  smile

Interesting theory:
What happened after teh blackout at the end of the game:
Nibbler: No!Leela, Fry, Bender, don't die!

Leela: Aw, poor Nibbler, did you have a bad dream? It'll be okay, we'll see Kif's babies tomorrow.
