Turn-based tactics that pack a punch
All in! Games have announced that The Protagonist: EX-1, a tactical RPG by 3Mind Games, will be available in Early Access for PC via Steam from February 18th. The story-rich blend of sci-fi and turn-based tactics accurately portrays fighting styles, especially the Maori martial arts called Mau rākau.
The Early Access version will initially have four-game levels, in which you’ll be able to explore a mysterious alien space station and familiarize yourself with the game’s extremely intuitive Martial Arts Combat System, based on real techniques. Take control of Angel and her teammates Radical and Buddy to fight your way through waves of invading aliens and save the rest of your crew.
The developers plan to add regular updates to the Early Access version, including new levels, characters, enemies, and more.
About The Protagonist: EX-1
The Protagonist: EX-1 is a gripping tactical RPG in which you play a highly trained soldier on a mission to infiltrate an alien space station that goes horribly wrong—you must find your team and discover the hidden truth.
When a mysterious alien vessel of massive proportions takes orbit over Terra, the Terrans attempt to make the first contact. Could anyone have prevented the disastrous consequences that followed? Now, war looms on the horizon between the Terrans and the invading synthetic race.
The Terran government devises a plan to infiltrate the station. An elite strike team led by Angel, a highly trained special agent with advanced martial arts skills, is sent to neutralize the threat. But the mission goes awry and Angel awakens in the infirmary of the station’s lab. With no memory of what happened, she must trust an unfamiliar face to guide her through the alien ship, find the rest of her team and complete the operation. She only knows this: they are Terra’s only hope.
