Ever heard of the thrill of the hunt? How when you work so hard to track down a certain creature and finally get the chance to capture it, a sense of accomplishment washes over you? Well, you don’t have to go out into the forest or the big wide world to hunt, you can just sit back at home and do it. Especially with a deadly virus spreading around, you’re better off sitting in bed playing games instead. Stay safe, play games!

A short summary for those who are unfamiliar with Steam - Steam is a video game digital distribution service created by Valve. It’s where players could buy games, leave reviews, join discussions with other gamers and many more.

So, rather than going through the pains of finding some monster taming games to play on your own, we’ve decided to help you speed things up a bit. Here are some of the top selling monster taming games which could be found on Steam.

ARK: Survival Evolved

This is an action adventure survival game by Studio Wildcard in partnership with Instinct Games, Efecto Studios and Virtual Basement. Players must figure out how to survive on an island called Ark with dinosaurs, wild humans (other players), prehistoric animals and wildlife challenges. It is an open world game and can be navigated through the third person or first person point of view - based on preference.

In order to survive, players would have to build their own home bases, weapons and tame animals. If you ever wondered how it would feel like to tame a dinosaur to do your work for you, this game will show you how. Ark: Survival Evolved can be played in single player or multiplayer - in multiplayer, you will form a tribe and no one can attack each other.


If you’re in the market for a more recently released monster taming game, TemTem by Crema and Humble Bundle could be the one for you. This game was released for early access in January of 2020 and has been compared to the likes of Pokemon due to its cutesy graphics and similarities in gameplay. It is also said to be highly inspired by the game.

TemTem is an MMORPG with a rather straightforward gameplay. If you’ve played Pokemon before, you would probably be good at it. Players would explore areas and capture creatures known as TemTems. There will be battles against other players or NPCs along with their TemTems. There will be six floating islands to explore and one evil corporation to defeat. Simple right?

Digimon Story Cyber Sleuth: Complete Edition

If you were born in the Digimon era, you would have fond memories of these little monsters. If you’ve never heard of Digimon before, then perhaps it’s time you get to know them! Digimon is similar to Pokemon but different in a lot of ways - you’ll see. Digimon Story Cyber Sleuth: Complete Edition is an RPG game by Media Vision and Bandai Namco Entertainment and is the fifth in the Digimon series.

The game is played from the third person point of view where players will control a human character with a Digimon of their choice. Digimons are digital monsters with their own unique abilities and are used in battle against other Digimons. Since this is the complete edition of the game, it will have a library of 341 Digimons for players to discover and collect.


A spinoff of the first title on this list - ARK: Survival Evolved is Pixark by Snail Games. This is a survival video game completely designed in pixel art Minecraft-looking graphics for a more relaxed and chill game play.

As per its spinoff, players will be placed on an island with dinosaurs that can be tamed, ridden or killed - depending on the player’s choice. Survival must be ensured by finding resources and building things as well as fighting other players and wild dinosaurs. The world can be adapted and changed to each player’s liking and there will be several areas to be explored. A quest system and creative mode is also available for players to try out.

Monster Sanctuary

Described as “monster hunting meets metroidvania”, this game has most certainly caught our attention from the get go. Monster Sanctuary by Moi Rai Games and Team 17 allows players to collect monsters and use their powers as they explore the world and unlock new areas.

Players will be on a quest to become the Ultimate Monster Keeper as they try to uncover the secrets that threaten the peace between humans and monsters. Players will assemble their own team of monsters as they journey on through a Metroidvania inspired world. Monsters can be hatched, collected and trained - equipped with their own skill tree for players to customize based on their own playstyles.

World of Final Fantasy

Alright, who hasn’t heard of Final Fantasy before? This is a huge franchise covering various platforms and spawning all sorts of merchandise around the world. World of Final Fantasy by Tose and Square Enix features a more traditional gameplay through turn based battles utilising the Active Time Battle System that the franchise is known for.

Players will take control of two twin siblings - Lann and Reynn who are the main characters to the story as they travel around Grymoire. Players will encounter creatures known as Mirages which can be tamed and utilized both in and out of battle. Large Mirages can be ridden to navigate the challenges faced by the environment. In battle, players will control a group of Mirages and their attacks can also be stacked for a better bonus.
