TemTem, The Pokemon-Inspired MMO, Releases Early Next Year

Gotta catch 'em all together.


If you've ever wondered what a Pokemon game would look like as an MMO, cast your gaze no further than the upcoming TemTem. Developed by Madrid-based studio Crema and published by Humble Bundle, TemTem takes the familiar creature catching and battling of Pokemon and sets it in a shared online world--and now it has a new trailer.

The Pokemon influence is clear as day, and Crema isn't shying away from the obvious comparisons. The Steam store page for TemTem even says that it's a "massively multiplayer creature-collection adventure inspired by Pokemon." Yet the MMO aspects differentiate TemTem enough that it's much more than just a simple clone.

"Every kid dreams about becoming a Temtem tamer," the game's description explains. "Exploring the six islands of the Airborne Archipelago, discovering new species, and making good friends along the way. Now it's your turn to embark on an epic adventure and make those dreams come true."

You'll be able to team up with other TemTem trainers and play the entire campaign cooperatively, battle against others in competitive matches, buy and decorate your own house, and customise your character to stand out from the crowd.

TemTem is initially launching on Steam Early Access on January 21, 2020. Those who purchase it at this early stage will gain access to three islands to explore, 76 TemTems to catch, and a 20-hour campaign. Crema will expand on each of these areas as the months roll by, and also has plans to release TemTem on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch at a later date.
