Sequel To Sega Mega Drive 'Mutant Football League' Touches Down On Kickstarter

Mutant-League-Football-KickstarterInstead of settling for realistic American football simulators in the nineties, many will recall picking up the abstract and gruesome take on the sport known as Mutant Football League. The creator behind this EA published Mega Drive / Genesis title, Michael Mendheim, is now hoping to call upon fans of the series to help fund a long-over due follow-up via Kickstarter.

The original 1993 release for Sega's 16-bit console was not only a parody of the highly successful Madden series, but also one which happened to use the same game engine. With players facing landmines, fire pits and countless other hazards on the pitch, Mutant Football League's gameplay wasn't just about scoring touchdowns, but also ensuring your squad of mutations survived as long as possible.

Through the power of Kickstarter, Mendheim is now hoping to raise at least $750,000 over the next month. His Kickstarter trailer - which features just as much humour as the original game - details the many plans in place for Mutant Football League's potential successor and how your pledge will ensure the game sees the day of light.
