Niche Spotlight – Temtem

Temtem

Today’s Niche Spotlight is Temtem, an online creature tamer RPG by Crema and Humble Games that recently left Early Access.

In the game, players explore the shared online world of the Airborne Archipelago to become the best tamer. Explore six massive, floating islands as you befriend other tamers, challenge rivals to monster battles, and collect new monsters to expand your roster of cutesy critters.

Tackle the story campaign alone or with a friend as you train your critters, trade, challenge the 8 Dojo Leaders, and stop the dastardly plots of Clan Belsoto. Customize your character with a variety of silly outfits and build your own house on Atoll Row, complete with furniture and decorations.

You can find the launch trailer below:

Temtem is available on Windows PC (via the Humble Store and Steam), Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 5, and Xbox Series XIS for $44.99.
