Slime Rancher for Mac is now available

by | Aug 8, 2017 | Shooter

After a time on Steam’s Early Access program, Slime Ranger for Mac is now available. The final version of the game was released on August 1st, 2017.

Slime Rancher is a really fun and original game about a rancher that makes a living wrangling slimes (you read that right). The rancher can accomplish that through a combination of canons, vacuums, a vacpack, and more.

You can watch it in action below.

This game is hard to explain, but one thing is certain: everyone loves it.

The game already has over 14,000 overwhelmingly positive (95%) user reviews on Steam. To give you some perspective, such a critical acclaim is on par with what most popular AAA games strive for.

Even the biggest gaming sites fell in love with it. Game Informer gave it 8.5/10 score while concluding:

Slime Rancher has the ability to keep you hooked for hours; I often looked out over my ranch, felt pride at my accomplishments, and eagerly ventured back into the wilderness to see what other strange things I could find.

Plus, the developer continues to provide excellent support with lots of free updates and seasonal events.
