Temtem is a creature capturing game from developer Crema that draws a lot (A LOT) of inspiration from Pokémon. But unlike any Pokémon game ever made, it’s an open-world MMO. As it approaches its Early Access launch on January 21, Temtem will be holding a series of three stress tests to give players a first short taste of the game.
Before going public, Crema wants to test the maximum capacity of its servers and identify any potential problems. They’ve been alpha testing, so hopefully many of the problems are sorted. But nothing gives your game an interrogation as thorough as putting it in the hands of thousands of people.
The first test will take place on January 11 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. PST. The second will take place on January 17 from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. PST. And the final stress test will take place on January 19 from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m. PST.
Get your Temtem on
The Temtem stress tests will help give Crema some idea of how the servers will hold up on launch day. Based on every other MMO ever’s launch, it’s going to go badly. But hopefully, the kinks will be ironed out quickly.
If you want to get access to Temtem for the stress tests, you need to head over to the game’s official website and sign up using your email. You’ll then be notified on January 9 or 10 with a Steam key, which you can redeem for access to the tests. If you already have an alpha key, you don’t need to sign up for a new key for the stress tests.
Getting access to the stress tests will not give you access to the game once it launches into Early Access. You will need to purchase it if you want to play it past the tests. You also won’t be able to keep any of your progress from the tests. Everything will be wiped from the server before release.
