It was later released for the PlayStation 4 on August 21, 2018, and August 11, 2021, for the Nintendo Switch.
This vivid open-world game has received overwhelmingly positive reviews from the start. Critics have praised it for its catharsis, addictive gameplay, and amazing-cartoon style graphics.
Slime Rancher Premise
This adorable life simulation has players running the most slimetastic farm you’ve ever seen. The Ranch is on an alien planet known as the Far, Far, Range. Players can discover and collect dozens of colorful and unique slimes. Grow fruits and veggies and raise chickadoos to feed your ever-growing collection of hungry slimes. Collect their Plorts to sell on the market.
Players can upgrade their tools and unlock new ones, including a jetpack. Trade resources with NPCs that each have a distinct and charming personality. Players can even combine these cute balls of goo to create over a hundred different types of hybrid slimes. And don’t forget to explore every nook and cranny of this vast open world to discover all of its secrets.
Slime Rancher Main Character
The main character of the Slime Rancher series is Beatrix LeBeau. This outdoorsy girl is the new owner of the Ranch, which was previously run by Hobson.
Before her arrival to the Far, Far, Range, Bea owned a shop and had a “special someone” named Casey. Throughout the game, Casey sends Bea starmail, which reveals information about Bea’s life before the Ranch and her relationship with Casey. Bea will also receive starmail from multiple NPCs, including the previous owner Hobson and people Bea can trade with.
