The first video game about Mutagen was released on November 27, 1993.

Electronic Arts, Nintendo and Bethesda Softworks has published most of these games

The mutagen is very often green, glowing ooze. Possibly radioactive waste or similar.

Unlike the real-world equivalents, this is for those that cause rapid and noticeable changes in the infected creature, often transforming them completely in short order.

Cases only heard about or seen only in cinematics should NOT count, though they can still be added if a note is included about the limited exposure.
