    It took only three days for the Mutant Football League Kickstarter campaign to reach the goal of raising $60,000 to be put towards completion of online multiplayer. The spiritual successor to the 1993 game Mutant League Football is being developed by the same creator and lead designer and has gone through some substantial changes since an original run at raising funds in 2013 came up short. This time the project was ready to be scrutinized and tap into a neglected segment of sports gaming...

    Back in 2013 a crowdfunding campaign for Mutant Football League achieved only 19% of its ambitious $750,000 goal. Development on the game never ceased however and now its back for another shot at getting support through Kickstarter. Mutant Football League is seeking $60,000 and is already almost a third of the way there in its first day. Generally Kickstarter projects need to make about a third of their goal within the first two days to be on pace for a successful campaign so this is a ve...

    It all began nearly a year ago. Joe Montana teased what at the time was believed to be a mobile game by tweeting out a picture that was accompanied by the hashtags #youvewaitedlongenough and #joemontanafootball16. Ever since fantastical rumors have swirled, inexplicably fanned by the CEO of the company developing the game, leading to some unfortunate misinformation and seriously unrealistic expectations.  (more…)...

    The chatter surrounding a complete unknown in Joe Montana Football 16 has been unprecedented within the genre, with made-up rumors fueling expectations that were unlikely to be met. The reality of the game is finally here though, and after learning for certain that it would not carry with it any NFL or NFLPA licensing, it's now been announced as a mobile-first game which may eventually land on PC but only if it "does well".

    The first day of E3 is in the books and it was relatively uneventful, though quite informative, in regards to the upcoming crop of sports games. This year at E3 expectations were tempered as far as the yearly league-licensed games go and there were few deviations from what was anticipated. Madden NFL 16 got a new mode announced, NBA Live 16 made some big promises, and FIFA 16 had one of the longest presentations in recent memory. Meanwhile the oft-rumored, and perpetually teased, Joe Mon...
  • Tap Sports Football In The Works

    The second edition of the mobile game Tap Sports Baseball just released and an Easter egg in the game has revealed a football version is on the way. On the outfield wall in Tap Sports Baseball 2015 is an advertisement for Tap Sports Football. Before turning to TSB the developers behind the game made Your Turn Football in 2013. It was a great game, particularly for a first attempt, with the design principles that made it so good being carried over to the baseball efforts. Areas in which ...
  • Poll Results Demonstrate the Challenge for an Unlicensed Football Game

    Given that anticipation for a new football game has been especially high in recent months, with Joe Montana Football 16 expected later this year and Mutant Football League coming at some point down the line, it's interesting to evaluate the market for such games. There have been so few unlicensed sports games to emerge over the last decade as companies have avoided the risk with development costs rising and consumers demanding all products meet a quality threshold which necessitates those...
  • Your Thoughts on Potential Interest in Unlicensed Football Games

    It's been nearly five years since a console football game last released that didn't carry with it NFL and NFLPA licensing. Backbreaker in 2010 followed All Pro Football 2K8 from 2007 and neither received a sequel. The last truly successful unlicensed game was Blitz: The League which came out in 2005. The limited market, greater development costs, and higher consumer expectations have made projects such as those increasingly difficult to justify and stay alive beyond the conceptual process. ...
