Mutant Football League News Post

Mutant Football League is still in production, and is aiming for a Q4 2015 release on PC (via STEAM), PlayStation 4, Xbox One, iOS, and Android, according to the latest trailer posted on the development team's YouTube channel. The project is currently self-funded, though developer Digital Dreams Entertainment is seeking a publishing partner.

The new footage promises:
  • 30 completely customizable teams
  • Hazards and traps in each stadium
  • Weapons like clubs, axes, and chainsaws
  • 7-on-7 football, featuring passing plays (with receiver icons), running plays, and special teams
  • Content targeting a "Mature" ESRB rating
Digital Dreams Entertainment was founded by Michael Mendheim, the creator and lead designer of the 1993 SEGA Genesis sports game, Mutant League Football.

Well, I was hoping for a simulation football game announcement but the potential M rating has me interested.

I know the games a bit away but this game looks pretty stiff at the moment.

I'm very excited! (yeah, at my age it doesn't take much)

'Looking for publishing partner and investment' while already seeking to publish it on every platform is pretty ambitious, I wish them luck.

You can see how far they've come, they didn't have anything remotely like this available to even tease w/ last year's kickstarter: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects...otball-league/

It looks like in May it was reported here a second kickstarter is coming: http://www.operationsports.com/news/...arter-planned/

I think that in many ways the gaming audience is beyond just wanting a game with mutants. The violent atmosphere is a nice gimmick but I think the success or failure of the game is going to come down to how balanced the gameplay can be. If the football isn't well-executed and either super-fun arcadey or complex sim-style, it's not going to matter that you can "kill" the players on the other team.

Agree, this looks like it's aiming to put a fresh coat of paint on the Blitz formula.

It made me wonder if they could license the Cyberball IP and have some crossover DLC

The weird indie game that I wish existed, but doesn't, is something like this, but with Football-playing Robots built with deep and detailed individual customization system and unforgiving physics on top of precise simulation gameplay.

A game with a building interface as detailed as Kerbal Space Program, building robots like those in Real Steel or Pacific Rim, playing football like that in 2K5/2K8

That's what I want. This looks awesome though, and maybe this will fill that niche.

They seem to have scrapped their initial plan to appear on 360/PS3.
