The first video game about Non-human protagonist was released in 1984.

Activision, System 3 and Actual Entertainment has published most of these games

This is sort of catch-it-all for protagonist types that don't have a more fitting or more specific group available (yet!). Ergo, this should NOT be used when better tags are available.

Essentially this says the protagonist is not a human/humanoid, not an alien, not a monster, not an animal, not an animate object, not undead (ghost, zombie, or some other), not a legendary creature, and some others.
