Pokemon-inspired ‘massively multiplayer creature-collection adventure’ Temtem is about to break $100K on Kickstarter

In this past weekend’s Make My MMO, we noted we were keeping a close eye on Temtem, a clearly Pokemon-inspired “massively multiplayer creature-collection adventure.” It hit Kickstarter last week and at the time was really close to its $70,000 goal.
