TFM: The First Men is a strategy simulation, enriched with character-driven base building, party-based exploration, and tactical real-time with pause combat which offers free major updates and extensive modding support. Inspired by Knights and Merchants, Rimworld, almost every fantasy roleplaying world, and the creation stories.

Character-driven base building

A modern character-focused approach for old-school base building fun. Develop your region and tend to your settlement's needs with the help of various paths, constructions, relations, traditions, and bragging rights. Whip your characters into shape with infinitely varied possibilities that will echo for generations. Body, Mind, Heart, Soul, and Self attributes with hundreds of traits and skills offer rich and enormously diverse character progression. Choosing the right character to take the right path is the most important part - as they can be the doom or the boon to your future!

Party-based exploration

Team up your characters as you lead plural parties in a roleplaying game - discover a living, breathing, and shaping world full of wonder that rewards exploration as you traverse, interact, and learn more about the multitude of races, authentic cultures, mythical creatures, and special characters you will encounter during your adventures.

Tactical real-time with pause combat

Prepare to be challenged by a real-time with pause combat system that rewards strong tactical thinking. Defend or attack in an unending cycle of war where adaptation is the key to success - raise children, train warriors, synergize cooperative parties, distribute loot and shape their experience into beneficial feats - they are all important parts of your grand strategy. Don't forget, all subjects you encounter, whether a gang of orcs, a pack of wolves, or a swarm of ghouls, each will have respective threats to overcome.

Tailored experience with free major updates

Different game modes for different playstyles flows and end-game goals;

- Campaign maps offer a simulation, city builder, colony sim experience, where you embark on an adventure of your chosen story, fine-tuned and hand-made to provide strong senses of polished settings, plots and characters with tailored events, conflicts, and end-game objectives.

- Skirmish maps offer a classic 4x game experience, where you compete and cooperate with other settlements on balanced, optimized, multiplayer maps to experience the classical, shortened RTS adrenaline. All players start as a separate settlement in this map mode.

- Custom maps have deep roguelike mechanics on an RTS game, offer endless replayability, where you customize your own unique map while defining starting rules and modifiers and enjoy a procedurally generated, randomized world that's never been explored by any of "the first men" before.

Extensive modding support

Explore and craft wildly interesting mods on Steam Workshop with the help of straightforward in-game tools, a map editor, and an API that allows you to override, add or modify new and existing features. This is your playground, your crafting table, your ruleset; whether localization to another native language, fresh & hand-crafted assets, exciting game rules, overhaul for the UI, or... shameless cheating! It is up to you to decide what you would like to be added to the game and shared with the world.
