The creator of Mutant League Football, originally released in 1993 and a cult hit amongst sports gamers has launched a Kickstarter to relaunch the game on both mobile platforms and consoles.
The game's core team includes Michael Mendheim, the original creator of the franchise. Dave Devries and Robomodo will be leading the art direction and design of the game. Dave Elliott, famous amongst comic book circles will be providing character and worlds work while Jay Lender, the original writer of SpongeBob Squarepants, will be providing writing for the game.
The game itself will feature 30 teams featuring a variety of customizable Monster and Mutant characters. The gameplay will be true to the Mutant League tradition, with maximum carnage, crazy stadiums with weapon wielding fans, dirty trick plays, and tons of 'tongue-through-cheek' humor. Simply put, it all sounds like incredibly chaotic fun if the vision is saw through.
The new Mutant Football League game is trying to reach $750,000 a very lofty goal -- but it has a lot of promise for sure. We are working on getting an interview with Michael about the game and it's vision. The possibility of new Mutant League Football is incredibly exciting news for sure!
