The first video game about Anthropomorphic animal protagonist was released in 1981.

Sega, Gremlin Graphics and Hi-Tec Software has published most of these games

For non-animal anthro~ protagonists, use anthro~ object tag instead.

For the pedantic: Yes, anthro- is a prefix for human-like. Which it is for even here, although only cases of human-like animals.

This should NOT be combined with animal protagonist tag. This is to allow more easily to find games where player controls actual animal separate of anthropomorphic animals and vice versa without using tag negation (and hoping they don't miss games where both are possible).
