All Articles: Mutant Football League
You know, I think Kickstarter might need to rename their “Games” category to “Sequels to Your Favorite Games From 20 Years Ago.” Especially, after today’s debut of a campaign to fund a Mutant League Football sequel.
The classic game was released for the Sega Genesis in 1993, or exactly 20 years ago. Now, the game’s original creator, Michael Mendheim, wants to create a sequel (using a slightly altered title: Mutant Football League) for the Xbox Live Arcade and mobile devices.
Mendheim has partnered with Robomobo to develop the game and is seeking $750,000 from the Kickstarter community. He’s promising that the game will include 30 unique teams (including the Mutant Humans, The Undead, Battlebots, Orcs, and more), trap-filled stadiums, “devastating mayhem” on the field, a Create-A-Player mode, and “tongue-through-cheek humor.”
The MFL team is offering up a variety of backer rewards and Mendheim hopes that the fan fervor that kept the game in the public eye for 20 years crosses over to the Kickstarter campaign: “The fans have kept their interest in this genre alive over the years and we want to reward them for their loyalty. We will be creating a new and very different game that pays homage to classic monster sports games and parodies the owners, the coaches, the sponsors and everything else that makes football such a great American sport.”
