Multiple Protagonists Tag

25 days ago

Alright I just created a new tag for stories that have more than one protagonist you can play as.

Since I didn't look much further than labeling my own stories, if anyone knows of more stories with multiple protagonists, let me know and they can be labeled appropriately. Remember, more than one protagonist! Not the same one with just a wildly different POV based on choices.

You might even get some pointless points out of it.

Might be an interesting contest theme someday.

Yeah actually that's a good idea.

And then we'll have some other stories to use the tag.

I’m pretty sure CYBERMONKEY actually fits this description. Even though the POV starts the same, it’s pretty clear in the endings that you’re not the same person as any of the other paths. An uplifted octopus in a human body, a peace officer looking for a mole, a Japanese man who underwent plastic surgery to look like a foreigner, etc. I’m pretty confident that means there are multiple protagonists, though I’m less confident that’s exactly what you’re looking for.

I came across a game called “The Hanging of Jordan Nickler” after pushing the ol’ Random button. The first part of the story has you play as the narrator with first person pronouns. The second half has you play as another character using second person pronouns. You also get one choice for the narrator’s mother. I’m pretty sure this qualifies.

Didn’t like the story much though. Guess that’s what I get for hitting the Random button.
