I do not think I have played a grand strategy game that has a style like TFM: The First Men has. This is a 4X strategy game that has a kind of cartoon vibe about it which is pretty neat. The game is an early access game at the moment, but they are very hard at work on this and there are certainly some very interesting ideas that they have planned. I think anyone who has an interest in strategy games is going to get a real kick out of what this is offering.
It Starts With Adam And Eve
The idea of the game is that it takes place in a fantasy world with tons of different races of people and creatures. TFM: The First Men is called that because your journey starts with your own Adam and Eve. From what I understand the game is going to be very character-driven which sounds interesting. I always find that when a strategy game focuses more on character, it always makes you more connected to the characters, and thus the stakes feel much higher.
Looking After Their Needs
As is the case with other grand strategy games, you have a ton of things to worry about in TFM: The First Men. The main attributes that the people in this world have are body, mind, soul, self, and heart. Then you also have a vast variety of traits and abilities that make characters special and unique. It is a lot to keep track of, but that to me is a huge part of the fun, trying to take care of people's needs all the while striving towards a goal.
Working Towards A Better Future
As you would expect, you are always working towards making things better for those that you care for. There are various expeditions that you can send people on and the traits and abilities that they have are key here. There are many different races that you will encounter in the game and you can decide how you want to deal with them. You can do diplomacy and work with people to try and benefit both parties. On the other side of this, you can just wage war and take what you want by force.
Using Your Brain With A Sword!
The combat in the game is very tactics based. TFM: The First Men has you needing to really think about what you are doing before you do it. It is tactical real time combat, but they do let you pause the game so you can have a moment to think which is something I like. There are many different creatures and animals that you will have to fight and each one will require you to come up with a strategy that works.
The presentation of the game is awesome. It reminds me of an 80s cartoon that would have been made by Filmation back in the 80s. It is very appealing to look at and I really do like that it has a kind of hand drawn style to it.
At first glance, it may look a tad on the simplistic side, but I think what they have done with the style of the game is very clever and it will certainly help keep you invested in what is going on.
