Temtem UPDATE: Pokemon rival adds function that LOTS of fans have been waiting for

Temtem developer Crema has posted a big new update about the massively multiplayer Pokemon-style release.

Out now in early access on Steam, Temtem gives players the chance to explore islands, capture creatures and battle with rivals.

It’s been favourably compared to Pokemon, only with the ability to explore the environment alongside scores of fellow players.

Unfortunately, however, not everybody is playing the game fairly. Some players have been exploiting bugs and cheating in order to improve their status within the game.

Things have gotten so bad that Temtem developer Crema has banned approximately 900 players.

“We just completed our first batch of banned users,” reads a Crema tweet. “Almost 900 players have been permanently banned from Temtem.

“Bans are final, we won’t answer or review any ban appeal. We’ve made 100% sure that every banned user is either a cheater or has abused exploits intentionally.”

While most fans agree that banning cheaters is a good thing, not everybody was thrilled by the language Crema used when announcing the bans.

The lack of any kind of appeal process has been criticised by fans, although thankfully Crema appears to have updated its stance.

“We’ve decided to review ban appeals, even though every single one of the ones we checked are legit,” the studio would later confirm. “Like you said, having a ‘no appeal’ policy is not good.

“So, you can contact us on [email protected] Put ‘Ban appeal’ as the subject and include your ingame ID or username.”

The studio is keen to point out that every ban so far is legitimate and that discovering a bug won’t result in a permanent ban.

“And no, you’re not going to get banned for casually finding a bug or an exploit,” another tweet reads. “Only players intentionally and repeatedly ABUSING exploits are banned.

“If you play in a regular way you’re OK. We’ve made 100% sure before doing any bans and every data we’ve checked confirms that.”

Available on Steam for £27.99, Temtem takes place across six islands in the Airborne Archipelago.

“Every kid dreams about becoming a Temtem tamer; exploring the six islands of the Airborne Archipelago, discovering new species, and making good friends along the way,” reads the official description.

“Now it’s your turn to embark on an epic adventure and make those dreams come true.

“Catch new Temtem on Omninesia’s floating islands, battle other tamers on the sandy beaches of Deniz or trade with your friends in Tucma’s ash-covered fields. Defeat the ever-annoying Clan Belsoto and end its plot to rule over the Archipelago, beat all eight Dojo Leaders, and become the ultimate Temtem tamer!

“These are the floating islands where Temtem and humans coexist peacefully.”

The game features a story campaign, online co-op, extensive customisation and a battle system. Players can even purchase a house within the game, and decorate it with various items.
