Gaming in Time of Pandemic The Best Social Games

Struggling with the curefew? Missing company? Getting anxious from isolation? Well, have you tried gaming? Here's a list of great multi-player games that become even better if you're playing them with friends. We have something for pros and beginners!

Temtem

  1. Developer: Crema
  2. Publisher: Humble Bundle
  3. Release date: in early access since 2020
  4. Genre: Pokemon-inspired MMORPG

Temtem is a game that we might call MMO Pokemon if it weren't for the fact that it offers a completely different universe. We will meet other players all around the place, but the basic rules of gameplay are the same as those of Pokemon. As trainers, we catch and develop various creatures called temtems, which we pit against each other in battles, trying to win the title of the greatest champion of the archipelago, or something along the lines.

What makes this a good game to play with friends?

In the game, you not only can meet friends during exploration it's also possible to complete the story campaign together! All fights are 2v2, so you can fight for the title together. Skirmishes occur in a turn-based system, so nothing prevents you from simultaneously having a conversation with a friend.
