So I played Slime Rancher for a total of 2 days last year in August at my husband’s house while I was visiting Canada, and I rinsed through all the content that had been put in up to that point. It was a fun and amazing game, even in early access, and something about being able to tangibly run my own farm filled with cute squishy friends spoke to me. I didn’t buy it though, because I make it a point not to buy games on early access for the same reason I’ve only ever pre-ordered 2 games in my entire life: I don’t trust anyone.
It’s out of Early Access now, and honestly? It’s only gotten better. They’ve added so many features since I last played! The entire game feels more polished and with the addition of a crafting system, there’s actually a lot more to do with plorts and cash after you’ve finished upgrading your Ranch. Even the development roadmap looks promising. I know the addition of a map would be pretty useful to me right about now. I’m notoriously bad at directions.
So! Tell me about your ranching experiences, fellow forum-goers. What kind of slimes have you crossbreed. What’s your set-up like? Are you enjoying the little letters left around and the Starmail you’re getting? Most importantly, which slime is your favorite?
