GDC 2017: Michael Mendheim talks Mutant Football League

Michael Mendheim talks Mutant Football League with Backer and Cleveland Team Owner Asif Khan at GDC 2017.


We caught up with Michael Mendheim to talk about Mutant Football League at GDC 2017. Mutant Football League is a 7-on-7 arcade-style, fully 3D sports video game where creatures of all kinds take the field to battle it out in the most violent game ever played! This hilarious and brutal parody of professional American football will introduce you to some of the wildest, most bloodthirsty superstar players to ever strap on shoulder spikes.

Players such as JJ. Rott and Troll Gonnamaulu lead stranglehold defenses against the punishing offenses of Bomb Shady, Jamaul Gnarls, and Ghoulio Bones. Mutant Football League features deep strategy, over-the-top violence, laugh-out-loud gross-out humor, and of course those signature Dirty Trick plays.  Thirty monstrous teams are made up of skeletons, bruiserbots, orcs, and aliens.  There are very few rules in The MFL, so get ready to do all the punching and crunching, biting and fighting, and stomping and chomping necessary to become the MVP (Most Vicious Player) of the Mayhem Bowl, and take home the Vic Lobotomi Trophy.

I am a Kickstarter backer of Mutant Football League and will be bringing a Cleveland team to the game. Congratulations to Michael and the team as they just announced last night that Mutant Football League completed its Kickstarter campaign successfully. We look forward to the game's release and will be sure to provide our community with updates about the game's development progress. Please take a look at this interview shot at GDC 2017.
