Early Access Review Slime Rancher You can think of something Like Harvest Moon. You have a small Farm and you have to catch Slime that live in the Area. These Mucus are then fed with Food that you have grown (kept very simple) or with Food that you have found on your Departure. As soon as you feed the Slime, it drops Crystals that you can sell. From these Crystals you can then buy Upgrades of anything possible or acquire new Territories. In addition, there is so far a very simple Breeding, in which you can fuse two small Mucus into a larger Mucus, which then drops two instead of just one Crystal. However, the "Breeding" of the Mucus Seems far too simple and could be made even more complex. In addition, it would be quite cool if the Cages of the Mucus were a bit larger and they might also develop something like Feelings, that they just don't like it, for example, when 10 Mucus jumps around in a small Cage. So so until now the Game seems more like the Spongebob episode "Hunters and Hunted" (http://de.spongepedia.org/index.php/J%C3%A4ger_und_Gejagte_(Episode)), with a distinct Aftertaste, despite (!) super cute Setting and Design and not like a Farming simulation alternative. So far, half a Buy recommendation, as is often the case with EA Items, where you always have to hope that the Final Product will ever be finished. It'S best to look in for about £10 and maybe even love.

Early Access Review Very nice and friendly Game, which, however, doesn't offer too much Content in the current Congestion. This is not really bad, as the Developers are doing their Way to incorporate new Features and respond to the Ideas and Suggestions of the Community. The current Version simply does not have the expected Long-term Motivation. The Game starts on a Ranch and you start to realise that you can make Money from glittering Excrement of little cute Slims. This makes you use and starts to catch these Slims and breed more Species to enlarge the Farm accordingly and improve its VAC pack (No I'm talking about no Bundle with Valve Anti-Cheat supporting Games). However, these Listed things are done relatively quickly, which is also the Main Reason why the Game gets "boring" relatively quickly. This is not meant negatively. Slime Rancher Is really Fun, it's just that in the current State it can't meet all the Expectations of buyers. The Developers could certainly make sure that the Game is even more Fun with some Minigames or a multiplayer mode, but also, as the Developers said, a big Update is imminent. I will keep an eye on that Game and follow the Development. Is it worth buying? Yes! There is always a lot of Stuff to be added, and besides, the Game already has mature Features to offer, such as the "Mucus Breeder free." If you are interested, check off the Wiki of the Game. Gameplay: 8/10 Graphics & Performance: 7/10 (some Rucklers if the Ranch is a bit Fuller, GTX 1070 OC 8GB VRAM. Fun factor: 10/10 Implemented Features: 9/10 Purchase Recommendation: 9/10 Revaluates this Review, should it have helped you, or even influenced your Decision to Buy.
