The Protagonist: EX-1 is an upcoming sci-fi turn-based tactical RPG from Montreal-based indie studio 3Mind Games, where you play as an elite soldier sent to infiltrate a hostile alien space station that has appeared in earth orbit. It's a rather unusual-looking game whose standout feature is a customizable martial arts system. The game was formally announced in October 2019 but it looks like it's been in development since at least 2017. There's been little news about it since then, though it did have a demo last year during the Steam Autumn Game Festival. Yesterday the game was released on Steam Early Access, so I guess we'll finally give it a shoutout. Here's the Early Access launch trailer and store page description:



War looms between the Terrans and an invading synthetic race. A massive station appears high in orbit and first contact between them goes very wrong.

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 and find the rest of her team. She only knows this: they are the only hope of Terra.
