Metamorphosis Alpha was the first science fiction role playing game. Struck by radiation, the passengers of the interstellar colony ship Warden have mutated into unusual and deadly creatures. With little or no knowledge of how to use the technology around them, they must struggle to survive. Metamorphosis Alpha spawned the popular Gamma World role playing games.
