Temtem has had many alphas over the past few months but the game launched into early access on Tuesday, Jan. 21, 2020. Six Airborne Archipelago islands are available for exploration in this version of the game but only 76 of the game’s over 160 Temtem will be in the world for tamers to catch.
The full game is expected to launch in May of 2020. As such, this walkthrough, including the list of Temtem Species and more, will continue to be updated over the coming months as additional updates are pushed into the game.
When you first launch Temtem, you’ll see on the screen a New Game option above a Settings option. If you want to adjust settings like the game’s audio and visual, select settings. Once you’re ready to go, hit New Game and you’ll immediately be brought to a character creation screen.
Here, you’ll select your character’s body, head, hair, top, bottom, bag and name.
At the name screen, you can type in a name for your character, select their pronouns (she/her, he/him and they/them) and their voice sound. Once you’re happy with your character, hit finish and your Temtem journey will begin.
Zadar is the opening area of Temtem and it’s where your character lives. You won’t spend much time here in the beginning but you can come back to this town throughout your journey. At the game’s start, the only things you’ll be doing in Zadar are selecting your starter Temtem and having your first battle.
The Zadar section of this walkthrough will walk you through everything you do in this town.
Shortly after you exit the town of Zadar, you’ll embark through the Prasine Coast. This is your first route where untamed Temtem and tamers will appear. It’s also where you’ll find your first item chest and mini-temporium.
