Review: Slime Rancher brings players nostalgia with recent launch on Nintendo Switch

Slime Rancher is an indie farming game developed by Monomi Park and released early in January 2016. Players assume the roll of Beatrix LeBeau, a rancher who moves to the planet known as the “Far Far Range.” The player is allowed to farm and explore the open world at their own pace. The game's main objective is to collect “plorts,” a farmable resource compiled from the game's main cattle: “slimes” a gelatinous creatures that come in many shapes and sizes. The player sells the plorts and gains money for better gear to further explore the world.
