I first discovered Slime Rancher from paulsoaresjr's youtube videos
and quickly searched the game up and found the forums... I was quite lucky as I got the before Alpha version just before the free download was removed. ^^
It was pretty much love at first sight, running around exploring, gathering food for my slimes and farming food, and then later on becoming a crazy cat lady with a ton of honey tabbies in the Overgrowth... I have no regrets and I think the cuteness makes up for the FPS drop I get whenever I enter the Grotto. XD
I would have brought the game the moment it hit Steam if I had the money on me, but I was only £1 short! So I had to wait for the next shopping day to roll by so I could go out and get a Steam Wallet card, and now the game graces my game library.
