After the Bomb Has Bunnies

... although you'd almost miss it based on the cover. It's a wrap around cover where most of the PC-side action is on the back. At a glance, this looks like a game in which you play far-future post-apoc humans with mechs who fight weird mutant monsters. But it's actually a game where you are the weird mutants. Furry critter muties. But they hide nearly all the furry critters on the back.

I don't know jack or shit about this game's history. I wonder if this was a calculated move to minimize the furry animal aspect and maximize the mech? Like they were afraid the Glitter Boys wouldn't touch a furry game with a ten foot Howitzer?

Peter Laird did some killer work.


  1. After the Bomb was a supplement for the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles rpg, and OF COURSE, you played a mutated animal.

    1. It's a reference to some kind of power armor from RIFTS. It's about the only thing I remember from that book other than some cool art.
