Temtem, a Pokemon-like RPG for PC, has hit Kickstarter 

Temtem has hit Kickstarter, a "massively multiplayer creature-collection adventure" where players capture wild creatures called Temtem, train them and battle with them in an adventure that spans six islands. 

Let's not kid ourselves, Temtem is a Pokemon game for PC, offering similar challenges and gameplay to the Nintendo classics while also providing gamers better visuals, extensive multiplayer/co-op support and MMO like features such as player housing and the ability to interact with other players at any time. If you have been dreaming of a Pokemon RPG, Temtem might be what you are looking for. 

Similarities to Game Freak's Pokemon series are everywhere, from the Temtem themselves to mechanics like training, breeding, capturing and evolution to the game's turn-based combat system with 12 Temtem types and their respective strengths and weaknesses. One of the campaign's stretch goals is the inclusion of a Nuzlocke game mode, a term that longtime pokemon fans will be very familiar with.

Players are also expected to defeat the "ever annoying Clan Belsoto" travel across the land and beat all eight "Dojo" leaders, Temtem clearly displays its Pokemon inspirations on its sleeves. 

Crema, the developer behind Temtem, expects to release the game on Steam Early Access in September 2019, releasing the game on PC exclusively. The developers will also develop a Nintendo Switch version of the game if they raise over $250,000 on Kickstarter.  

Temtem's funding target currently sits at $70,000, earning over $12,000 so far thanks to the contributions of around 300 backers. Crema has 33 days to gain the finding that they desire. 

Some gamers have been crying for an alternative to Nintendo's Pokemon series for over a decade, either hoping to see a similar game outside of Nintendo traditionally weak handheld hardware or to see the genre opened up in ways that Game Freak have so far been unwilling to do with their iconic Pokemon series.

Looks really well done but holy crap it's so similar to Pokemon I don't know if it will last. Nintendo are pretty precious over their IP.Quote

Plus, if PUBG Corp has any success against Epic, then temtem will have no chance. I also think, Nintendo won't allow a Switch version, simply because temtem is way too similar. But it still looks very nice, I loved Pokémon back in the days, but it became VERY boring for me, with the newer versions. I played Blue, Gold and Silver, but after that, everything was pretty much the same :/
One could argue that this also applies to Call of Duty, but hey Quote

I doubt PUBG can win. Copyright just doesn't work that way. You can't copyright ideas (such as gameplay), just the execution of them, and Fortnite looks nothing like PUBG, and Fortnite doesn't use code from PUBG. You really can't mistake Fortnite for PUBG, so I doubt any intellectual property law except patents (which I don't think PUBG has) would apply.

I think that Temtem is closer to a Pokemon game than Fortnite is to PUBG, so there may still be a potential for legal problem.Quote

Technically it does, same engine.

Also you have to think, would Fortnite BR exist if PUBG did not.Quote

Also important not to forget that "PlayerUnknown" had been contracted to develop the BR modes for other games(H1Z1 for instance) prior to this and given the genre exists primarily because of his original ArmA/DayZ mods I'm sure he feels some entitlement to recognition or small license fees(Esp given he'd almost certainly already been paying a healthy sum to Epic Games to use their engine in such a capacity). In many ways Fortnite does seem abit like a parody of PUBG that has been heavily commercialised as it gained popularity, with many unique gameplay elements used quite directly.Quote
