Welp, not only has it been funded, it is 1000$ over it's goal!
I had a bash at the demo -- I am NOT disappointed. It perfectly encapsulates and embodies everything that made the Mutant League games great -- excessive violence, blood, hazards, dirty plays, everything I remembered and loved from the original is here and improved a thousandfold. Even the snarky/funny quotes from players are pretty great. The Robots have been overhauled, and the Trolls were replaced by Orcs, which is fair enough.
Graphically, the game looks good, but being in Alpha it will certainly be improved. Playing with my USB controller was a bit awkward at first but I got the hang of it and managed to have a tie, as the demo stops at half-time. It's also limited in team selection, 5 thus far, but that will be improved, of course.
Edit: It's now nearly 7K over the goal. Holy shit.
