The Kickstarter campaign is being headed by Michael Mendheim, the creator and lead designer on the original game.
"Mutant League also spawned a syndicated television series, a comic, a toy line and a sequel called, Mutant League Hockey. Then the game was suddenly cancelled and Mutant League was no more," wrote Mendheim on the game's campaign page. "The [new] game features will include the use of brutal enforcer players, field obstacles, hazards, player weapons and dirty trick plays (where throwing a bomb is literally throwing a bomb)."
If successful, Mutant Football League is scheduled to take the field in the next 14 to 18 months.
