By reaching additional funding targets they can deliver more features to the game targeting October for PC release and early 2018 for PS4/Xbox One. The final stretch goals have now been announced and several have already been met.  (more…)...

    Rather than being about the series of entertaining Madden NFL 17 games in an eSports setting where viewership numbers are slowly on the rise, the big story coming out of the Madden Bowl late last week related to the conduct of the winner on social media. The situation has been problematic for EA Sports which is still trying to find its way in the competitive scene and has now faced a number of growing pains along the way. The circumstances necessitated a response from the company which wa...

    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...

    EA Sports is hoping to build Madden into a popular eSport. In terms of viewership they've been gradually climbing despite some inherent challenges. However they've had their share of growing pains with Madden NFL 17 as the entertaining games haven't proven to be the story. The Madden Classic held in early December had its championship game determined in part by a QB freeze bug that resulted in a fumble that was returned for a touchdown. That specific bug was fixed 10 days later with a pa...

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...
