Mutant Chronicles is a franchise started by the Swedish company Target Games, set in a post-apocalyptic world. It's partially based on the 1992 Tabletop RPG Mutant SPACE which was adapted to Mutant Chronicles in 1993. Works include:

  • There was a RTS video-game announced in 2003, but entered Development Hell and was never published.
  • A reboot called Warzone: Resurrection was released in 2014.
  • Golgotha (1996) — a series of five comic books written by William King with art by Davide Fabbri (and other artists). Issue #5 was a source book with minimal info about some of the characters from the comics. Each of the comics came packaged with one of four promotional cards for the Doom Trooper CCG.
  • Dark Eden (1997) — a second collectible card game, designed by Bryan Winter, it's based on the tribes remaining on planet Earth. Genesis, an expansion set, was planned for 1997 but never released.
  • Mutant Chronicles Collectible Miniatures Game (2008) — a hex-grid game for two players that came with starter packs. Players were expected to buy booster packs to expand their units.
  • Mutant Chronicles (2008) — an independent film directed by Simon Hunter, whose writers apparently just didn't know or didn't care about the existing material, making it more of an Adaptation Inspiration than a direct adaptation.

Other Mutant titles by Target Games not considered part of the Mutant Chronicles franchise include: the original 1984 Tabletop RPG Mutant (which makes Mutant Chronicles a spinoff of a spinoff), as well as it's latter sequels New Mutant (1992), Mutant: Heirs of the Apocalypse (2002), then its prequel Mutant: Year Zero (2014) and the latter's video game adaptation (2018).
