Nuzlocke Stretch Goal smashed! And "Choose a Temtem" winners ⚡

Posted by Crema (Creator)

Just one day after Temtem was funded and you already managed to smash our first goal!! Nuzlocke Game Mode will be happening, we're very thrilled to see tamers dealing with the Nuzlocke rules and challenging themselves with this special game mode.

For all of you that don't know about the Nuzlocke Challenge, Nuzlocke is a set of custom rules that will make the game more challenging and that are also designed to create stronger bonds with your Temtem. The basic rules are these:

  • Any Temtem exhausted in combat is considered dead and you won't be able to use it again in combat.
  • You may only catch the first Temtem encountered in each new area. You will only have one chance to capture it and you won't be able to catch any more Temtem until you progress to a new area.
  • You must nickname all Temtem caught in order to create stronger bonds with them.
  • When your last Temtem become exhausted, the game will be over. You'll lose all the progress and you'll have to start over again.

So, new Stretch Goals?

Yeah! We're now aiming at the Arcade Bar. The Arcade Bar will have a prominent location on the Archipelago and tamers from all over the six Islands will go there to kill some time while playing the arcade machines. Each arcade machine will feature a complete arcade mini-game and players can win tickets, which will grant unique rewards like cosmetics, furniture or items.

But we're also unveiling a new Stretch Goal related to a very special type of Temtem... The Mythical Temtem! Mythical Temtem are a group of very rare Temtem. They will only appear once in each Tamer's adventure and they are very related to Airborne Archipelago's mythology.

We're currently planning to include two Mythical Temtem in the game, each Mythical Temtem will have a custom area and a unique side-quest for them. If we reach the 160K goal, we will be adding a third one in a very special place...

"Choose a Temtem" winners!

The Choose a Temtem backer mini-game has been a huge success! Thank you so much for participating in it. We've processed the 700+ comments and now we have the winners of the game:

Temtem #32 and #33 will be included in the game. We're going to take a couple of days to think about their types and possible evolutionary lineage and then we will make a new mini-game to choose their names. We will be asking for name suggestions on our Discord server, so make sure to join us to participate!

      Shame, I would have loved #29... dark and foreboding TemTem for the win!

      Also, will it be possible to reset for Luma Mythicals?

      Will the Nuzlocke mode have a dupes clause or Luma clause? If so, will they be mandatory, or will there be some form of customization for the rules imposed?

      Our nice, happy lad, #13, was cheated out of 1st place by that weird deer thing. Its only fair that the dev. team make #13 the new Mythical Temtem.

      How did THAT thing get 3rd place!? Come on, guys! \o/

      ¿Hay alguna posibilidad que los runner-ups sean añadidos en un futuro? Creo que los 5 en la lista son MUY meritorios de ser implementados en el juego final y son únicos en su estilo.

      Just want to put my name ideas for 32 here so they are known. If it shouldn’t have been here, I’ll just repost it in the Discord so this can be deleted if you want it to be.

      32’s start name should be BuckBolt, since it looks like a lightning type. And continuing that trend, it’s final evolution should be Fulmination. The mid-tear evolution can be whatever.

      I just wanted to make my idea known, I’m sorry if this is distracting or if I posted it at the wrong time.

      How long will the Mythical quests be?

      @SmartAlec13 Nuzlocke is not an official term. Crema is not trying to hide the game's similarity to Pokemon anyway.

      Pokemon/Nintendo doesn't own Nuzlocke, it's a term invented from fans. I think it's a very appropriate title to us. @SmartAlec13

      Darn, I was so hoping #13 would win!

      Excited for $90k being reached. Though I think naming it "Nuzlocke" might be a bit much, if you are trying to separate from the obvious Pokemon origins.

      Hyped that the game is funded! My fiance and I are looking forward to playing it together

      Not a big fan of 32 but I do like 33. Number 30 deserved better though :'(

      This is perfect! 32 and 33 were my first and second choice, thank you everyone for voting. I really hope more of them make it into the game!

      I love the idea of the mythical TemTem!
