Temtem is a Pokemon inspired MMORPG, that is developed by the Spanish development studio Crema. The game is essentially a monster-collector in which the main objective is to tame every Temtem available in the game’s universe. Temem’s storyline revolves around the main character and his/her journey throughout the six islands. Players will battle numerous NPC as well as real players in their journey to become the biggest Tamer.
Much like Pokemon an evil organization that goes by the name of Clan Belsoto, is trying to take over all the six islands by force and players have to deal with them and their shenanigans while in their journey.
Apart from the main storyline, players can indulge in co-op mode that is available in the game. You can team with a friend or a random stranger and compete against other tamers from around the world. Temtem combat-system is very strategical and unlike Pokemon doesn’t have any RNG elements to it. According to Crema, the game will minimize the RNG in the competitive play, which includes things like Critical Rate, Evasiveness, and Accuracy, all of which are quite common in Pokemon.
