Mutant Football League reached all its stretch goals in fundraising campaign

Posted March 7th, 2017 at 7:00 am

The Kickstarter campaign for Mutant Football League has come to a close and the final tally of $138,092 was enough to hit not just its initial funding target but all 21 stretch goals.

It took only 3 days for the fully funded goal of $60,000 to be met that would ensure online play but all the way into the final hours for the last of the stretch goals – a full 13 game season with playoffs. Along the way the extra money collected meant additional teams, species, dirty tricks, gorier visual effects, halftime mini-game, and more will be included in Mutant Football League when it releases in October for PC and early 2018 for PS4 and Xbox One.

For more on what to expect from Mutant Football League and its development journey from the original until now make sure to check out the interview with creator Michael Mendheim conducted for the Press Row Podcast and Sporting News.

    pasta, will these funding goals be the norm for smaller, niche sports games going forward?

    • I can’t recall any sports game succeeding on Kickstarter in the past. The reason this one did is cause it has a history (people remember the original) and that the actual game wasn’t dependent on it – just extras for it. I don’t think any independent game could generate enough money through crowdfunding to develop in its entirety.

        There have been several successful sports games on KS. Off hand, i can think of Gridiron Thunder, BobbleHead Football, and Football Heroes.

        Considering that Axis Football (a Steam #1 btw) was built for $500, certainly a football game could be built for what these KS projects have gotten, in fact if Danny Jugan had gotten that kind of backing we’d probably have a console football game by now that’s at least as good as that Lacrosse game. But then again, most devs aren’t as talented as Danny Jugan.

    Looks cool.
