The funding campaign concluded, with the game smashing its $60,000 USD, raising an impressive $138,092, a total that saw it surpass every single one of it’s stretch goals.
For all you noobs out there who don’t know: Mutant Football League is an NFL Blitz arcade-style football game, but featuring nasty mutants, monsters, and gore galore. The series first arrived onto the scene in 1993 via EA and the Sega Genesis. It very quickly become a hit, and today it is widely considered a classic, and certainly one of the best in the arcade-sports genre.
That being said, today, Digital Dreams Entertainment announced that the game — on PC — will launch sometime in October 2017. Meanwhile, the PS4 and Xbox One versions of the game are still poised for a release sometime in early 2018. Further, the developer also released a new “overview trailer” of the game, and revealed that it’s fully playable and near Alpha.
The game notably features a single-player experience; however, according to the developer it is at its most fun when playing with friends, either online or with local play of 2-4 players. There are over 14 unique teams, special all-star players, and a variety of stadiums where you can deploy traps against the opposing team or beat them with dirty trick plays such as bribing the refs.
