Slime Rancher is a unique blend of farming and first person shooting in which your gun acts as a vacuum cleaner, sucking in slime ball creatures and other resources and blowing them out in your fully customizable ranch.
You play as Beatrix LeBeau, an optimistic young rancher who is determined to scratch a living on a remote planet, a thousand light years from earth. The land is fairly fertile so growing your crops may now be a problem – however what WILL be a problem are the rolling avalanches of slimes that await behind every corner.
You can use your trusty vac pac to capture different kinds of slimes and experiment on them. Once you know a little bit more about them, you can even figure out what actions to take and to satisfy them and feed them, then harvest the gems they produce. You can even create new types of slimes – but beware, pushing your experimentation too far may have disastrous consequences!
