Mutant League Football Kickstarter: This Sequel Must Happen

Oh man. How badly do I want this?! Gimme gimme!

There's a new Kickstarter campaign out there that desperately needs your attention. It was started by Michael Mendheim, who created the original Mutant League Football on the Sega Genesis. He wants to do a sequel.

Yep, a follow-up to one of the most wildly entertaining games of all time (in my all-too-accurate assessment). The campaign seeks to generate $750,000 by October 16 and currently, the effort sits at $1,177 from 31 backers. Well, it just started, so here's hoping! If successful, the game would be slated to release in summer 2015, and it'll be scheduled to hit the Xbox 360, PC and mobile platforms. However, stretch goals include $2.25 million (Xbox One) and $3 million (PlayStation 4). Gonna need lots of backers for those.

The new effort will pay proper homage to the original title, while still building on that admittedly bare-bones foundation with "deep strategy, creative customization, over-the-top violence, and gross out humor." Mendheim did mention that it would've been great to work with Electronic Arts again (the publisher of MLF back in the day), but he really wanted to have "full creative control" over this new project. And if he gets his way, it will bosat multiplayer, single-game and full season mode, and even playoffs! I might actually like this multiplayer.

The only part I'm not sure I like is worrying about the health of my players. I'd have to see how that was implemented before I accepted that particular mechanic...this is supposed to be stupid silly fun and not overly complex.

I remember playing with a friend when we were stationed in Germany. He had mutant league football and I had Mutant league hockey. Those games were so fun! You were able to get weapons and bash the other players and the blood would splat haha. Running for the td and all of a sudden you exploid cause you stepped on mutant bubble, same thing in the hockey and the character would go under the ice and end up seeing them sliding underneath the ice the whole game. I liked that huge mutant face goal, was tuff to score but then when you made it it just explode! LoL Attack the referee! And the whole team would beat the ref and then the mini fights were cool also. Would be interesting to see how it would look on ps4, would it stay classic or go all out graphics looking like GoW? Either way great game back in the day! Day 1 Ps4-Watch Dogs
