Slime Rancher

Slime Rancher review

Slime Rancher is a charming life simulation sandbox video game created and released by Monomi Park in 2017. In the game, you collect cute little slimes that adore you. You feed them whatever they want, and they give you money. Isn’t that cute? Furthermore, Slime Rancher boasts excellent artstyle, great music, straightforward mechanics, and an outstanding, ethereal environment.

Slime Rancher: Concept and Gameplay

When you start playing Slime Rancher, the game teaches you basic movement, which is very convenient. You play Slime Rancher in an open world from a first-person perspective. You take on the role of Beatrix LeBeau, a rancher who has moved to a faraway planet dubbed Far Far Range. Beatrix LeBeau lives the life of a ‘slime rancher’, builds her ranch and explores the environment for the purpose of collecting, raising, feeding, breeding various types of slimes — and making money off it. 

Aside from the game’s overall cuteness and great rewarding system, Slime Rancher provides elements of exploration and danger to its fans. Each day comes with new opportunities and risky challenges as you work on getting rich in the slime ranching business. Slime Rancher presents a rather simple strategy to develop for making money and maximizing yields from your slimes — something that feels very rewarding.

From the vibrant beginning to bittersweet ending, Slime Rancher totally takes your breath away. Some players even say that the ending has made them cry — something that’s not very easy for a video gaming experience to achieve. On the whole, Slime Rancher is a great game for players of all ages and skill levels. 

Relaxing & Make-You-Smile Kind of Game

Even though Slime Rancher is being constantly updated, a lot of its fans say that there’s not enough content in the game. In our view, a game has got something very right when the biggest players’ complaint is ‘not enough of it’. In fact, players with great sense of humor even claim that Slime Rancher manages to solve what years of antidepressants have failed to do. 

At the end of the day, sometimes you just need a change of pace after spending too much time playing violent shooters. That’s when the adorable slimes come into play. Besides, enslaving cute little creatures, force feeding them, and making profit of their poop just feels so satisfying, don’t you think? It’s the kind of video game you could play all day. And it’s definitely worth every penny it costs, so feel free to buy Slime Rancher and have a blast playing it.
