Temtem ‘Starter Temtem’ trailer

Meet Crystle, Smazee, and Houchic.


Publisher Humble Bundle and developer Crema have released a new trailer for creature collection collection massively multiplayer online RPG Temtem introducing the three starter Temtem that players can choose from at the beginning of the game.

The three starter Temtem are as follows:



Crystle are cute but tough, their primary stats are Defense and HP and effective against Electrical and Mental type Temtem. Head to the mines of Queztal to find wild Crystles for a chance at catching a rare Luma version.



Smazee may be fluffy but they pack a punch and are all about attack power and speed. They are most effective against Earth and Crystal type Temtem and are known as elegant battle machines across the Archipelago.



Houchic are ideal first Mental type Temtem for novice trainers. Their strengths in Mentalism allow for strong Special Attack & Speed stat ratings. Houchic is especially effective against Neutral and Melee type Temtem.

Temtem is due for PC via Steam Early Access on January 21, 2020. The full, non-Early Access version of Temtem is planned for release across PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Switch, and PC, but a release date has yet to be announced.
