Protagon is a hybrid casual game designed from the ground up for the SteamVR experience. It blends concepts from mini-golf and pinball with an intuitive VR interface.
Just pull the handle on the ball, aim and release to launch it into the zero-gravity course! Can you make it under par? Each "hole" or level introduces new twists, obstacles and game mechanics to keep you challenged.
To complete your immersion in the unique world of Protagon, the game features hand-drawn background art, awesome soundscapes and original theme music by Sotiris Gougousis!
Have you ever heard of such a thing? A board game is updated yet costs less than before its improvement?
Regardless of its seeming absurdity, this had to be done. A couple of tweaks needed to be made, sure, but just as important, Goblin Slayer was just too darn expensive. That needed attention as well, so here's what we did:
1. Clarifies fireball and lightning spell effects on Mirelle's character card.
2. Removes an obsolete setup rule (left over from a previous edition).
3. Tweaks the character standees (cut and colors).
4. Replaces the thick laser cut standee stock with laser cut card stock, to lower the game's price (from $49.99 to $41.99).
Special thanks to SIX (Seattle Indies Expo) for additional and welcome scrutiny.
