Temtem is now in early access and has garnered a lot of interest amongst fans of the Pokemon franchise. Here's what you need to know.

Temtem is the Pokemon-inspired monster collecting game, and it’s Early Access has come to PC from 21 January 2020.

Players will eventually be able to explore the six islands of the Airborne Archipelago, discovering new species and making friends along the way.

Temtem will be available for Early Access on Steam and Humble stores until full release, and it will debut roughly half of the game, feature a large selection of Temtem to collect.

More features will follow before the launch of full release- a few of which have already been teased by the developer.

Continue reading for all the information we have.

Release date

The full version of Temtem is set to launch in the third quarter of 2021, but with all of the delays we have seen as of late, this date will be subject to change.

Steam are offering a broad overview of the game on their site, but the game is quite simple in principle.

Just think Pokémon, but with online features in the style of a PC based MMO.
