Slime Rancher pulls off a PR coup that fast food corporations would kill for: its battery farming, but adorable with it. Monomi Park's cutesy farm sim has no truck with free-range and GM-freeits about cramming as many colourful blobs as you can into tiny pens, gorging them on snacks, then sucking up their plorts (that is, poop) with your vacuum gun and selling it for the highest rate. Its the kind of horror show that has you hankering for that chlorinated chicken you keep hearing about. On the other hand: ahh, look at their little faces.
Getting your slime prison operational is pretty straightforward. Venture out into the wild and you'll find all manner of slimes oozing out of the landscape. They're so abundant and simple to catch, in fact, that you can practically fill all four of your gun's storage canisters in the first 15 minutes. Managing your captives proves trickier.
