New Metamorphosis Alpha Edition

Metamorphosis Alpha was the first science fantasy RPG and was the precursor to Gamma World way back in the day. In fact, the same developer wrote both: James M. Ward. There is currently a Kickstarter project for a new edition of Metamorphosis Alpha. I thought some of you here might be interested (especially since it seems Gamma World has gone into hibernation once again).

I think he should put out a free pdf of the main basic rules first to give us an idea how the system works. I'm just talking mechanics wise.
I finally got onboard with the MA 5E kickstart.

The irony, to me, is that it was originally supposed to be based on the D&D 4E rules system and I thought that would make the new MA a hard-sell since it might be too similar to the new Gamma World product line.

Now GW is dead and MA 5E is based on a new set of mechanics. Guess there isn't a direct competition any more, eh?
