Mutant League Football, launched in the year 1993, was an iconic video game of its time.
Such was the popularity of the game that a cartoon show based on it was produced and aired between 1994 and 1996. While the received a lot of popularity, the publishers, perhaps, didn’t find it successful enough to plan a sequel for it. However, two and a half decades post its original release, the game has found a ‘spiritual successor’ in the form of the Mutant Football League.
In the year 2017, the idea of Mutant Football League was conceived thanks to a Kickstarter project where a sum of $60,000 was raised. Though Mutant League Football couldn’t have a sequel to its credit, Mutant Football League’s success paved the way for its success. Different types of violent combat situations involving mutants form the core of this game. A football game serves as the backdrop of the game.

This will lead to the gameplay becoming more complex and interesting. Now, weather conditions will be able to bring about prominent alterations in mid-match.
