Unseen protagonist

Creatures theme

The protagonist is never seen. A common trait of strategy and managerial games.


The first video game about Unseen protagonist was released in 1982.

2K Games, Electronic Arts and Blizzard Entertainment has published most of these games

If there's no information on what or who the protagonist is and is never addressed, then this shouldn't be used.

Games with no protagonist of any kind especially shouldn't be tagged with this. Usually noticeable from the fact that any information pertaining to the protagonist does not exist. This is the way traditional games were, there was no protagonist, unseen or otherwise.
