Mutant Football League Kicks Off Kickstarter Campaign

Just in time to soak in some of the American football hype surrounding the Super Bowl, Digital Dreams Entertainment has launched a Kickstarter campaign for Mutant Football League.

If the name Mutant Football League sounds different yet eerily familiar, that’s because it is. It is a spiritual successor to the original Mutant League Football from the Sega Genesis. Michael Mendheim, the original creator and designer of the 1993 Electronic Arts classic, has returned to quarterback the project, so obviously it’s in great hands.

Development has reached the red zone, but the team needs additional funding to punch the game into the end zone for the touchdown. The campaign is seeking a minimum of $60,000 primarily to complete the game’s online multiplayer mode, but also to create additional teams, character species, and dirty tricks, and to put the finishing touches on AI and overall game balance. On its first day, the Kickstarter is already more than a third of the way to its goal.

Mutant Football League‘s violent 7-on-7 arcade gridiron carnage will be unleashed first on PC via Steam beginning this October. Leading up to the full launch, the game is scheduled to go through a closed alpha in April, closed beta in June, and early access beta in July/August. Console versions for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One will then follow in the spring of 2018.
