New indie studio AE Games has announced plans to bring “Mad Men Football” to Wii U. The game is described as follows on the company’s blog:


Mad Men Football is a retro-styled American football video game with a historic twist, being developed specifically with the Wii U in mind! Mad Men Football is taking historical figures and groups from battlefields, and putting them on football fields!

Many of the historical figures and groups in the game may have used swords, cannons, and rifles to win battles in the past, but now they will be “battling” to win on the gridiron! Instead of George Washington firing shots at his enemies’ heads, he’ll be firing passes over their heads.

AE Games doesn’t intend to take advantage of Kickstarter, as Mad Men Football is being self-funded. Development began in 2013 and the studio hopes to have the game out on the eShop later this year.

    This still fake to me

    Why do I get the feeling that this is secretly EA trying to pull off a ‘MGS V Phantom Pain reveal’ but only doing it to test out the Wii U’s indie scene with a shaddy looking game?

      Because these guys are from North Carolina.

      Ergo EA closed their old studio

    This is a really BAD attempt as a troll-job. The website looks like it was built on Geocities circa 1998.

      “Also, for those wondering about the site, being that I wasn’t originally planning this for this week, is one reason the site is on Blogger. I actually have another hosting site, and it is currently just redirecting to Blogger for now.The hosting site is where the final website will be designed, and it also allows for real email accounts associated with the domain.”

      Right from the source.

        Point being? Where else would it come from? That has nothing to do with this site or company being valid or false.

    Phew, thank god for this, guess we don’t need that 3rd party support now we have AE on our side.

    For all of the bad-mouthing going on in here, I think it sounds pretty interesting… Tecmo Bowl meets history. Football is cool and so is history so the collaboration of the two could be worthwhile, especially if it has online and cheap. I look forward to seeing a demo.

    To those whom are dismissing this already, I suggest look at the page for proof that they are not joking (as they have concept art for Washington for evidence of it’s existence)

    I for one think this would be a great indie entry in the eShop, pity that Indie game companies are the only ones taking the Wii U seriously while “major” 3rd party companies are too chicken to even do a lick of effort

    Madmen = Madden
    AE = EA

    Don’t buy into this. It’s trash and lies.
