Mutants and monsters unleash maniacal carnage on the gridiron in THIS action packed, arcade-style football game. Mutant Football League delivers intense online multiplayer action, deep strategy and deadly humor.  

Fantastical arenas full of ruthless fans and deadly traps set the stage for mayhem in every contest that allows players to win by highest score or by killing and eradicating their opponents - a feat made easier as teams use their unique “Dirty Tricks” such as “Bribe the Ref” to overturn a call or having a player become “Ginormous” to grow in size and pummel the puny combatants in their path. Whenever a game begins you’ll quickly discover the only predictable element is broken bones.  

Mutant Football League is the bloody-fun next generation, spiritual successor to the retro classic, “Mutant League Football,” designed and produced by Michael Mendheim, the creator of the original game which means you can expect deep strategy game-play, bone crunching, tooth shattering hits, and a roster of ghouls delivering tongue-through-cheek humor. Oh, and blood. Lots of blood.  

Game Modes and Features  

  • Two player online or four player local MULTIPLAYER gives you the choice to clobber one another or team up and crush opposing miscreants.  
  • Choose from 18 TEAMS made up of blood thirsty, wisecracking Skeletal Deadheads, Armored Bruiserbots, Criminal Aliens, Mutated Humans and Monstrous Orcs.
  • NBA Jam and NFL Blitz hall of fame commentator, Tim Kitzrow gives unforgettable, adult-oriented play-by play commentary for every game.
  • Use Dirty Tricks during game play to Bribe the Ref, throw Bombs, or equip Shotguns and Chainsaws to your players to inflict maximum carnage against the unsuspecting competition for real difference-making moments!
  • 18 unique fields across the league offer landmines, booby traps, fire pits, toxic moats and buzz saws as fun but deadly obstacles.
  • Play as MFL All-Stars Wham Neutron, Bomb Shady, Ghoulio Bones, and more who dominate the league with their rising kill counts and ferocious abilities. 
  • Multiple punishing play modes like EXHIBITION, PRACTICE, PLAYOFFS, or try to survive a FULL SEASON and reach the ultimate glory: THE MAYHEM BOWL! 
  • Make the most of POST-PLAY MAYHEM by bludgeoning your opponents with brass knuckles, body slams, and rib-crushing kicks after the whistle blows 
  • Exploding body parts, comically horrific deaths, and blood splatters fuel the MFL GORE FX visual experience.

We launched yesterday at the crack of dawn, and our blood thirsty soldiers were ready for battle.  Hitting that launch button on Kickstarter is no easy feat and there’s no telling who will survive the entire campaign. After all, we’re dealing with a game where characters routinely have their heads, and limbs removed from their body and the thought of survival was ever present on the team’s mind; but waking up on day 2, we knew we had weathered the storm and it couldn’t have been possible without such generous support from our community, press, and all the new fans of our hilarious and literal gut-busting game, Mutant Football League.

Ladies and gentlemen, we’re at the 50% mark!!!!


We’ve been listening and interacting with a number of you via our comments section, and through PM messages about what you’d like to see added to the campaign, both in terms of stretch goals and rewards. We needed to see what was working, what you liked the most, and what you requested before we could add that kind of content to the campaign experience but it’s coming, and we hope to have more by early next week.

Last night when King_Foom streamed the full pre-alpha build with Michael on as his guest, we announced our FIRST CONTEST that sees the WINNER get a character named after them in the game. It’s simple to be participate:

1) Become a backer
2) Download and install our sneak peak pre-alpha build
3) Score as many points as you can, and snap with a picture with YOU and your SCORE in frame
4) Post your pic on our Facebook page: 
5) Use the Hashtag #MutantFootballLeague when posting




Who needs the Super Bowl when you’ve got bloody thirsty mutants dying for some action on the gridiron field?  

Not only does the new Mutant Football League launch on Kickstarter Thursday, February 2nd at 7:00am ET with new exclusive rewards, we’re also providing access to a preview build of the game on Steam which you can play!  

We’re almost there and you can help us get across the goal line! 

 Give the MFL team feedback, help shape the game, let us know what additional features you want, and really wrench out every possible drop of blood from this gridiron gore-fest.     

To play the demo you will need a Steam account and Xbox One or a PS4 DualShock 4 Controller which works on the PC. The demo is pre-alpha so you will encounter some bugs but you’ll also have a lot of bone-breaking, bruising fun and can even live out glory in the MAYHEM BOWL as the DEADLANTA VULTURES vs the NUKED LONDON HATRIOTS!

So join us and let’s win this one!


Mutant Football League predicts the Superbowl - with deadly results!
