As for the first Slime Rancher, Edwin said it's the "poop-farming sim you didn't know you needed".
"I love a game that is both as sweet as apple pie and as dark as pitch, and Monomi Park's bubbly sci-fi farming sim Slime Rancher is very much one of those," he wrote, before describing it as a "sort of first-person Harvest Moon knock-off with a splash of Dragon Quest".
