Description

Slime-san was minding his own business, sliming around in a peaceful forest when suddenly…A giant worm appeared and gobbled him up! 
Now deep within the worm’s belly, Slime-san has to face a decision: Be digested by the incoming wall of stomach acid... Or jump, slide and slime his way through the worms intestines and back out its mouth! Two major DLCs available: Blackbird's Kraken and Sheeple's Sequel!

History

Slime-san is the fourth major game developed by Fabraz. The three previous titles being Planet Diver, Cannon Crasha and Wild Wild Pixel. Slime-san is a game that is fun down to its very core. A silly story, with an unlikely character and gameplay that is addictively fast. It offers over 15 hours of single player content yet is tailored for speed runners as well. The very core mechanics and level design lend themselves to be played competitively online. It is a visually unique adventure using a carefully crafted, 5 color palette world that is filled with fun and goofy Japanese references. It also has a soundtrack that is worth the price alone, featuring some of the most popular chiptune composers in the world! Published by Headup Games.

Features

  • No time to stay still as you are chased by a wall of acid at every corner! Run, run, run!

  • Collect partially-digested apples to unlock different play styles, outfits, shaders and mini games!
  • Get your shopping done in a town of survivors within the worm, home to colorful characters and surprising secrets.
  • Each level is timed with online rankings, for the competitive and score-oriented.
