Mutant Football League is back! We talk with Michael Mendheim about the game at C2E2 2014

TechRaptor - Mutant League Football, originally produced by 3DO, is a game that still inspires nostalgia across a few generations of gamers. Released in 1993 the game took a very different approach to the sport of football, offering you both sport and war games. You took to the field with your team of mutants, playing the sport of football – all while attacking your enemies, avoiding the traps on the field (land mines, toxic waste, and more!), running plays, and “nasty audibles” to maim or take out your opponent. The game spawned a toy line and TV show that became quite popular, but due to bankruptcy 3DO was not able to take the game any further. Recently, the game came back into the spotlight when Michael Mendheim (the original lead designer) and his company Digital Dreams Entertainment began working on a new iteration of the series – Mutant Football League.

I used to rent this and Mutant league hockey all the time back in the day.

I thought EA still having the NFL license releasing the same game year in year out with minimal improvement constituted the mutant football league. Am I mistaken?

This doesn't have anything to do with the NFL brand though this is football in general which no one owns the rights to.

I know... I was calling EA mutants by proxy...just messing around.

YES!!! I loved Mutant League Football on Genesis.

Bones Jackson!

Kill the QB

The robot team with the QB that had a jet pack and could launch himself over the line for a QB sneak.

Love it! Can't wait. Hopefully it doesn't suck.

I loved this game, along with ML Hockey, but man the Kickstarter they tried looked really bad. I would love nothing more than to have a redone version of this classic but I don't think this game is going to be what we want.

THIS is what we need. More football games, however absurd.
