Why We're Going Back to Temtem...
Mrs Stix and I played through Temtem back when the game was still in Alpha testing. It was good, it was really, really good. Much better than we had ever anticipated it being going in.
We’d invested over a hundred hours into exploring, into leveling, into training our Temtem to be the very best like no other Temtem ever was. However the game was still very limited, and they launched into Early Access with those very same limitations.
Which is fine – as I said there’s a lot to do, a lot of hours worth of content to consume, but I had no real intention of jumping back into the MMO until there was more content, as I didn’t want to have to be forced into repeating the same content so close to having already cleared it.
Now fast forward to today, when I see that the brand new Temtem update has been announced, bringing in the new Kisiwa island, the new Club function, and 23 new Temtem. Yup, color me excited.
As you can tell from the trailer, quite a few additions have been made to the game in our absence, and I’m incredibly excited to jump into the game again.
Being able to explore additional areas via new abilities like rock climbing is something I’ve been eagerly anticipating, and the new emotes actually look kinda cute.
Although the one thing I’m dreading is having to seek out and capture our Temtem all over again. I’m gonna miss my old team.
Temtem is an MMORPG that allows thousands, tens of thousands of players to all concurrently occupy a large, magical world filled with creatures you can go out and capture to do battle with.
It’s like a large-scale Pokemon MMO, something fans of the MMO and creature collection genres have been waiting for for years now. I’m surprised that there hasn’t been any form of legal issues concerning the game – I mean it’s even releasing onto the Switch!
Both of us are huge fans of the game and are excited to be able to jump back into it after our absence, and this definitely seems like the perfect opportunity to.
They have a lot of updates planned for the future, tons of new Temtem, additional islands, an extension to the story, dojos, more multiplayer features. Honestly, this is one of the few – if only Kickstarter funded MMOs I’ve seen actually release into a fully playable state like this.
I’m always surprised that the game is as good as it is.
Quick question for those of you still here: What is your favorite Temtem?
