Outlander protagonist

Creatures theme

The protagonist is an outlander within the setting, a foreigner from land you don't get to see.


Alternate name: Foreigner protagonist

The first video game about Outlander protagonist was released on August 31, 1996.

Bethesda Softworks, NIS America and Koei Tecmo has published most of these games

Visiting the protagonist's origin country/land/whatever can be included if it's only minimal, as otherwise their nature as outlander is in question.

Besides amnesia, being from another world, or being a literal alien, this is one of the few somewhat reasonable reasons to teach the player character about basic things even small children should know about.

This is not very useful if the game is set on multiple worlds or the protagonist is somehow otherwise expected to be a foreigner part of the way. Such as games mostly set in space, or in trading simulations.
