Slimes are so hot right now. Between Slime Rancher, Slime-san, and the mascot of Dragon Quest, people just can’t get enough of these squishy little beasts. And, if you enjoyed the roguelike-meets-deckbuilder mechanics of Slay The Spire, now you can play that as a slime, too!
Rise of the Slime casts you as a blobby blue slime on a quest to become a hero, defeating enemies and progressing through the world through strategic card combat. The game — which is made by a solo developer in Riga, Latvia — has been in Early Access for a while, but now it’s finally ready to slime its way onto the eShop on the 20th of May.
If you’re a fan of roguelike-deckbuilders, you’re probably already champing at the bit to give Rise of the Slime a go, but for those of you who aren’t convinced, there’s a demo available on the eShop, which will let you play through the first 30 minutes of the game.
Can’t wait to become one with the slime? Or are you a little tired of roguelike deckbuilders for the slime being? Let us know in the comments.
