Features of plot and gameplay
Beatrix LeBeau is the main protagonist of this open world game with a first-person view. You arrive to the distant planet called Far, Far Range in order to become a farmer.

That is how your fascinating life of a space slime farmer begins. Your main task is to cultivate slimes and explore the vast world around you. The only disturbing thing is that sometimes slimes can eat each other and occasionally hens running around. Collect, raise, feed and create new breeds of slimes in order to earn Newbucks and open new locations – if you enjoyed playing Pokemon and Stardew Valley, you will certainly find this game appealing.
