Publisher Humble Bundle and developer Crema announced Temtem will launch for Windows PC via Steam Early Access on January 21, 2020.

View the gameplay overview and Early Access announcement trailer below:

Here is an overview of the game:

Temtem is a massively multiplayer creature-collection adventure inspired by Pokemon.

Every kid dreams about becoming a Temtem tamer; 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.

Catch new Temtem on Omninesia’s floating islands, battle other tamers on the sandy beaches of Deniz or trade with your friends in Tucma’s ash-covered fields. Defeat the ever-annoying Clan Belsoto and end its plot to rule over the Archipelago, beat all eight Dojo Leaders, and become the ultimate Temtem tamer!

These are the floating islands where Temtem and humans coexist peacefully. Each island is a whole different world, but there is something we all have in common—our love for Temtem and Temtem fighting! Intrepid tamers like yourself travel on airships to the furthest reaches of the Archipelago to find the best Temtem. Every young tamer dreams of becoming the best…

But not everything is fun and peace in the islands. Behind the scenes, Clan Belsoto is weaving a dastardly conspiracy against Temtem and humans alike. You will need all the friends and your best Temtem to defeat the wicked Clan Belsoto.

Key Features:

  • Story Campaign – Journey across six vivid islands and embark on the adventure of becoming a Temtem tamer while fighting against the evil Clan Belsoto.
  • Online World – The days of traveling solo are over; in Temtem the world is a massively multiplayer one. Tamers from around the world can join and you will be able to see them around you, living the adventure with you and fighting to become the best Temtem tamer.
  • Co-Op Adventure – You will be able to join forces with a friend any time and work together towards your next goal. Catch new Temtem, complete a Route, or face off against a Temtem Leader; all while fighting alongside your friend in dual battles!
  • Housing – Buy your own house at Atoll Row and decorate it your way. Buy new furniture, color your walls and you’ll be ready to invite your friends over!
  • Customize – Customize your character to stand out from the crowd and get new cosmetics while you battle other tamers. Pick a silly hat, a comfy sweatshirt, some pants and you’re ready to go! Or maybe you prefer to wear a full-on cosplay of your favorite Temtem?
  • Competitive – Start by choosing 10 Temtem and the pick and ban phase will begin. Take turns with your rival to pick your Temtem and ban theirs. When all the decisions are made and the turns are ended, you will end up with a squad of four Temtem and the battle will begin.

The main gameplay of this looks so fucking good. The changes this makes from Pokemon are things I've wanted in those games for years (double battles being the main, increased focus on strategy etc.) I hate MMOs, and am not at all about the focus on multiplayer, but I'll be grabbing this when it comes to Switch in April regardless. Looks fantastic.

This looks way more polished and a way better game than sword and shield and i bet its made with 1/4 of the devs and way less money. Its a copy of the formula but improved and more polished, this might be good and pokemon might learn a thing or two. It looks a lot like a 3d version of that pokemon fan made mmo. But with this said it lacks soul , that special magic nintendo games have that sparkle , the charm. It looks good but pokemon ip have that japanese taste , that anime style that is so great.

The OG copyright for Poke'mon's game design must have run out in most countries by now. I guess it has been over 20 years.

THERE IS NO COPYRIGHT ON A GAME DESIGN!!! How's that supposed to work on other games? Racing games? All the same design. Sport games? Fighting games? Mortal Kombat not possible because Capcom has Street Fighter? Just think about it.
