Originally released in 1993, Mutant Football League gained a cult following throughout the years and is fondly remembered as an engrossing and entertaining game. The newest version is more a spiritual successor, as it was originally developed by EA Electronic Arts, and redone by Digital Dreams Entertainment. The game was funded through Kickstarter and received $138,092 in funding from avid fans.
Mutant Football League's return marks a significant movement in video games, as it joins the long list of remakes funded by fans. Keeping true to the original, this current version features over-the-top arcade gameplay, with hilarious physics and gory violence. There seems to be a movement in gaming currently where nostalgia is a driving factor. The increased level of technology has brought older intellectual property back to the forefront as developers are keeping core concepts, but modernizing visuals and gameplay.
