Indie games developer Digital Dreams Entertainment has announced that Mutant Football League™, the spiritual successor to the classic Sega Genesis sports-hybrid game, Mutant League Football™, will be on exhibition and available for demonstrations during GDC 2017 at GDC Play Booth #PL4228 in San Francisco’s Moscone Convention Center from March 1-3.
Mutant League Football is currently in Pre-Alpha phase, but Kickstarter backers have been provided a fully playable preview build to test drive the game. MFL’s official launch is scheduled for October 2017.
Digital Dreams Entertainment recently launched a Kickstarter crowdfunding
campaign to complete Mutant Football League’s Online Multiplayer mode and the game’s final development and tuning. The initial $60,000 crowdfunding goal was quickly achieved in four days, culminating on Super Bowl Sunday just as the game was going into overtime. The campaign has since blasted past several stretch goals with over $85,000 in funding.
Video game sports fans can also get excited with the additional news that legendary voiceover actor Tim Kitzrow will provide Mutant Football League’s audio commentary. Kitzrow is best known in games circles for his iconic work in NBA Jam, with such memorable sound bites as “He’s on fire!” and “Boomshakalaka!”
“This is a dream job for me,” said Kitzrow of joining the MFL team. “The game is a blast; people are going to going to lose their minds playing this game. I mean really, seriously lose their minds.”
