[Update: As noted by Eurogamer, Crema is choosing to relax its ban policy a little following yesterday’s announcement. While the developer insists every single ban implemented to date is legitimate, going forward banned players can log an appeal against their prohibited status at [email protected]
Crema remains steadfast in its mission statement toward those who would hack or exploit Temtem, saying, “Don’t trust cheaters. They just want to know more info about the ban in order to avoid it next time they’re using cheats. They will lie about everything in order to get more info… If you play in a regular way you’re OK. We’ve made 100 percent sure before doing any bans and every data we’ve checked confirms that.”]
Crema – the developer of recently released Temtem – has made its presence felt regarding its zero-tolerance policy against cheaters. Posting on Twitter, the studio announced that 900 Temtem players have already been permanently banned from the game, with many more already in the studio’s sights.
“We just completed our first batch of banned users,” declared Crema. “Almost 900 players have been permanently banned from Temtem… Bans are final, we won’t answer or review any ban appeal. We’ve made 100% sure that every banned user is either a cheater or has abused exploits intentionally.”
Though it’s understandable to take a hardline approach, some players have expressed concerns that the inability to appeal could ruin the game for players mistakenly or “wrongfully banned.” Clearly Crema is very confident in its ability to root out those who genuinely hack or otherwise exploit the creature-catching title in their favour.
Temtem is currently available in Early Access on PC.
