Is Temtem worth your time with the full release 1.0 now?
Temtem just released its 1.0 version and is now live on all platforms with cross-platform progression.
Temtem is a Pokemon like massively multiplayer online monster catcher game from the studio Crema developed in Spain. The game has been in development for 3 years with early access and it is finally time to launch the 1.0 version.
Do you want something similar to Pokemon but more in depth and more mature?
Like with Pokemon, in Temtem you start out with three starter Pokemon, Houchic, Smazee and or Crystal.
Right now there are a total of six different Islands that you can discover and play on:
Temtem has a total of 164 different species that you can currently discover. Starting with #001 Mimit and ending with #164 Volgon. There are 12 different types:
Similar to Pokemon you also have some enemies to fight against. Your rival Max and the clan Belsoto, which is an enigmatic, evil organization operating throughout the Airborne Archipelago. They are basically the the same thing as Team Rocket in Pokemon.
What does Temtem do different to Pokemon?
Temtem is basically a Pokemon game in disguse. So what is actually different? Temtem has a different story, different setting, the themes and tones are different that you will encounter. You can also play the entire story in coop with a friend.
Temtem also feels a bit more "mature" than Pokemon. It is basically a game for players that grew up with Pokemon but kind of grew up and want something more "in depth".
The main story takes about 50 hours to complete. But that is not all, there is a ton of really good side quests that are worth your time. They also unlock new areas.
Now combat is really where you will notice a huge difference. There are no single one on one encounters in the game. Every fight is at least in a doubles format, even in PVP. And because of this battles are more difficult and in depth compared to Pokemon. That means you really need to know your way around in combat to truly be able to succeed.
And because there are always two Temtem in combat, there is also a system used with synergies. If you have the right Temtem on the field you can do a combo attack. This also means that you really have to be careful in picking teams. After all the you want to make sure that you can pull off combo attacks, because they are more powerful.
And because of all this Temtem is definitely way more complex compared to Pokemons simplified combat systems.
Temtem has a great Art Style and Beautiful Zones
Temtem has a very unique art style. All the zones that you will visit throughout your journey are really well polished and look amazing. The areas are also fun to explore and there is always something to do. Of course visuals are not always a top priority for certain players, but they certainly do matter.
The main takeaway point here is that Temtem managed to really make all the different islands unique. You don't travel to a new island and will get the feeling "have I been here?".
Your Character and Cosmetics in Temtem
You can of course also style your own character. There are hundreds of cosmetics that you can collect in Temtem. You can customize pretty much anything and change the color as well. Of course if you just want to collect Temtem and don't care about your outfit, that is fine too.
The Design of Temtem Monsters
You might wonder how Temtem actually look like, let us give you a few exampes. The design of the Temtem definitely are really well thought through. In Pokemon we always get the feeling that the new Pokemon look more and more ridiculous because they seem to run out of ideas or time.
And of course there are also very hilarious ones like the Grumper Temtem.
Can you breed and trade Temtem?
In Temtem you can also breed and trade Temtem, this is a crucial part for a MMO. This especially matters if you want to achieve really good Temtem stats. There is also an auction house where you can sell your eggs.
When you breed eggs, the females provide the desired endspecies and the males provides unique movesets. The great thing about this is that you can either try to breed your own perfect Temtem or just check out the auction house, for the right price you will find almost anything.
What long term content is there in Temtem?
Because Temtem is a MMO you might wonder what kind of endgame and long term content you can expect.
First off, there is a fast travel system and mounts that will make traveling around quite painless. So you don't get bored and have to spend running around for hours without actually doing any true content.
There is also a really cool sticker collection mini game. You can collect and trade these stickers to complete your sticker book.
And of course there is also a fishing mini game in Temtem. You can go to a certain place where they will tell you to catch certain fish to gain rewards.
Dojo rematches. The Dojo rematches are basically the hardmode version of fights in Temtem. Here you fight against opponents with the highest difficulty setting enabled. You need to really be prepared to win.
There is also a PVP mode in Temtem which won't get boring anytime soon. There are many great possible combos that you can pull off against your opponents.
Housing is also a thing, you have access to your own home in Temtem. In your house you can add unique trophies and furniture to decorate your home. You can also hang out with friends in their houses.
Guilds have access to Dojo clubs. Guilds can compete against others to hold territory with tournaments happening throughout the week.
Then there are also raids that you can complete with 3-5 players where you have to work your way through a dungeon. At the end of the dungeon there is a boss that you have to defeat. If you are successful you will get an egg of that boss.
And lastly, there is Saipark where different Temtem spawn each week with enhanced stats. Basically the "shiny" Pokemon.
Before we are done there is actually a seventh island called "Tamer's Paradise" made for endgame players that was added in the 1.9 release.
- Archtamer Sanctum (Defeat 4 Powerful Characters)
- DraftArena (Defeat stronger and stronger Characters)
- GritArena (Like DraftArena but with your own Tems)
- Evershifting Tower (Randomly generated tower)
- TemSafari (Swarm mode)
- DigiLair (2 Player Dungeon)
