Temtem's Price Will Rise Throughout Early Access

The game is cheaper for early adopters.


Temtem, a new PC MMO that is clearly inspired by Pokemon, has launched in Early Access on Steam. The game, which costs $35, lets you catch, train, and battle with your Temtem, and explore the world alongside other players. But you can expect that price to rise over time (though Temtem is discounted at the moment).

It's a good proposition for PC players who want a Pokemon-style game, or even players who were disappointed with Pokemon Sword/Shield, which it's currently cheaper than. That might not remain the game forever, though, as developer Crema has stated that the game's price will increase during the Early Access period, although it's unclear how soon this might happen.

Now Playing: Temtem - 20 Minutes Of Alpha Gameplay

On the game's Steam page, a developer Q&A states that the game is about 50% complete right now, and will take about 20 hours to play through. The final product will be much bigger, but people buying the game now are paying less than customers will have to pay for later versions of the game.

"We believe in giving advantages to our early supporters, so the current Early Access price will be raised gradually as we ship new content and features," it says. It's unclear when this might happen, or how high the price would go, but if you're interested in the game it might be worth picking it up sooner rather than later. You can even get it at a discount if you buy from other online storefronts--get it now, as the deal may be a limited opportunity.

In her hands-on preview, Kallie Plagge said that the game is an interesting twist on what we've seen before from the Pokemon series.
