Mutant Football League To Be Resurrected by Kickstarter?

Mutant Football League To Be Resurrected by Kickstarter?


Michael Mendheim, creator and lead designer of the original Mutant League Series, has initiated a Kickstarter campaign to resurrect his classic series.  If fan support is substantial and his Kickstarter campaign is successful, Mendheim is planning on releasing a Mutant Football League game on Xbox LIVE and on iOS and Android Tablets.

With the original Mutant League video game having been released way back in 1993, an all-star team of artists and writers have been assembled to bring the classic game to a whole new generation of gamers.  This all star team includes:

  • Michael Mendheim - Creator and lead designer of the original Mutant League series, writer of the hit Heavy Metal graphic novel, The Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse™.
  • Simon Bisley - Eisner Award winning artist (Lobo, ABC Warriors)
  • Dave Devries - Creator of The Monster Engine a popular children’s art book, lecture, demonstration and gallery exhibition that explores the premise of what a child’s drawing would look like if it were painted realistically.
  • Dave Elliott - Comic writing legend (A1, Weirding Willows, Heavy Metal)
  • Jay Lender - Writer and director of SpongeBob Squarepants and Phineas and Ferb
  • Micah Wright - Writer of Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 Zombies.
  • Robomodo Studios - Talent behind Tony Hawk series of games, Fight Night 3 and NBA Street.


Mutant Football League will play host to a ton of gameplay features including:

  • Mutants vs. Monsters - 30 vicious teams featuring  a variety of awesome, fully customizable Monster and Mutant characters including: Mutant Humans, The Undead, Battlebots, Orcs, and more!.
  • Maximum Carnage - Inflict devastating mayhem on the opposition with punching, kicking, bombs, clubs, axes and even chainsaws.
  • Killer Stadiums - The stadiums are filled with crazed and obnoxious weapon-wielding fans, and the fields are strewn with hazards, traps and debris. No field is the same, and all fields are deadly.
  • Dirty Trick Plays - These are mean, nasty, unfair and lowdown plays intended to hose the opposition, or if that doesn’t work, kill them.
  • Customizable Creatures – Create and name your own team and players, assign players a position, train them with skills and abilities, give them attack moves, add armor and weapons and let them loose!
  • Tongue-Through-Cheek Humor - A fun, entertaining and off-the-wall parody of the NFL, with all the excitement, hard-hitting action, lunacy, unspeakable greed, corporate ruthlessness, hypocrisy and over-the-top egos that professional sports has to offer

If you have any interest in this plan becoming a reality, visit the Mutant Football League Kickstarter page here.
