What are your inspirations for TFM?
How can I play the game before the release?

Your feedback and thoughts are very important to us. So, we’ve designed a mini-game in TFM Discord Server by using roles, and it is up to you to earn new roles, unlock special channels, and eventually gain access to the game before the release.

Those with access will be expected to use an in-game bug reporting and feedback-sharing tool.

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

When the final version is released, it will be a complete package of everything tailored to the interests and tastes of our player base. Therefore, a key component of Early Access is learning what players want to see more of. However, as players, we’ve created a roadmap of features we want to include in the game and continually prioritize it based on feedback from our community.

In addition to features displayed in the roadmap, we want to add multiplayer and extensive modding support until the full version.

We want to bring joy to multiplayer after providing you with a satisfying single-player experience in each of our campaigns, skirmish maps, and procedurally generated worlds.

So for the main release, we will have Multiplayer; if you are hyped for multiplayer only, it would be wiser to wait until it is implemented during the Early Access. 

What platforms will it be available on?

Early Access version will be available on Steam and PC.

Later we will add Linux and Mac supports, and the game will probably be available in most stores. Not sure right now about “when” this may happen.

And much later, we believe the game may even be playable on consoles.

How much is the price going to be?

Starting with $25USD, we plan to gradually raise the price as we ship new content and features during the Early Access.
