The Action-Adventure Game of Mutant Mayhem and Pure Pandemonium

You: a deadly mutant mercenary. Your team: a bunch of killers just like you.

The job: track down mad General Gonzoida, destroy the Possibility Bomb, and save the worlds... all of them. The pay: warm fuzzies, a presidential pardon... and the sweet sweet taste of freedom. You could say no, but you’d be dissected by dawn, and you might not be dead come dusk.

So lock and load, soldier. The Earth ain't gonna save itself!

FERAL gives you all you need to create mutant characters and crazy dimension-shredding adventures set in the 1980s.

With dozens of mutations, hundreds of animals, thousands of character combinations and millions of worlds to explore, FERAL promises billions of hours of roleplaying mischief and mayhem all for one purpose:


Who the Hell are You?

Hey there, I’m Jez Gordon, an Australian game illustrator and book designer who lives and works out of Sydney’s Northern Beaches. I’ve been drawing monsters since I was in the womb, playing RPGs since I got the Moldvay Red Box in 1982, a qualified graphic designer since 1993, and I’ve been combining all three loves since 2010. These last seven years I’ve been working with some of the top RPG writers and designers out there, and I’m hoping some of their awesome design chops have rubbed off on FERAL, my first stab at publishing my own RPG material. Really hope you like what you see here. Bewdy.

Artwork and Design

In addition to writing and game design, I’m also bringing 25 years of award-winning graphic design and illustration to the project. FERAL will be chock-a-block full of character illustrations and rock-solid information design.
