What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

TLDR; The current experience of TFM: The First Men offers fun, stable and polished gameplay with the core features completed. Early Access allows us to get important feedback to make the game even better.

Steam is an amazing platform to begin testing games during their development and iterate the game design. This is possible because Steam has the most amazing value that a game company can ask for: the best player community in the world.

As Gathering Tree, we believe that what makes a game great is its community. That's why we want you, our most esteemed supporters, to become an integral part of our development process by playing, testing and providing feedback on our game during its Early Access phase. With your input, we'll be able to elevate our game to its maximum potential with a better-implemented game balance, more satisfying gameplay, additional content and improved optimization.

Join us at Discord (discord.gg/tfm) where we can keep in contact with you and foster a constructive community focused on playing and improving the game.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“We're currently estimating that the game would be in Early Access for about one and a half years. We want to make sure the game launches in a state we are happy with and don’t want to rush it.”

How is the full version planned to differ from the Early Access version?

“When the full version is launched, it will be a complete package of everything refined according to the tastes and preferences of our player base. So the big part of Early Access is finding out what players would like to see more of, but here’s some of what you can expect:

  • Gameplay balance tuned to perfection.
  • A larger variety of traits, constructions, traditions, bragging rights, doodads, and other game elements.
  • Polished multiplayer functions.
  • Procedural generation working as intended.
  • Fun and rich AI systems for entities, activities and combat parties.
  • More ways of atmospheric elements in style with additional visuals and aesthetics.
  • Completed tools for the modding community.
  • Localization beyond just English.

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“As it stands, the game is mostly stable and performs well enough to be played comfortably. Currently, we are working on balancing out the game features as well as adding more content to deliver a much more enjoyable experience while most of the core game mechanics are available in the Early Access version.

With that being said, bear in mind that you may still encounter some disembodied voices, teleporting heroes, or paralyzed NPCs. These are perfectly normal breakdowns on the current state of development and will be resolved shortly.

We would like to kindly ask you to take note of this and only start playing the Early Access version of TFM if you are cool with that. Our best interests lay in making this game as perfect as it can be and in order for us to achieve this goal, we need the most important asset a game developer can ever ask for; its community's trust and support during the early stages of their game's development.”

Will the game be priced differently during and after Early Access?

“We plan to gradually raise the price as we ship new content and features.”

How are you planning on involving the Community in your development process?

“During the Early Access phase, TFM community is kindly encouraged to post as much constructive feedback on Steam Community Hub as possible.

Feedback and comments are incredibly important for the development process of TFM. We are extremely grateful for having such a passionate group of players and we make sure not to take it for granted.

From the bottom of our hearts, thank you very much for your support and trust you have given us during this phase. We hope to see all of you shaping the destiny of the first men!”
