FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

 

San Mateo, CA - September 15, 2020 - Monomi Park is celebrating surpassing the 3 million unit sales milestone for their debut indie title, Slime Rancher. With over 800,000 average monthly users and dozens of free content updates, Slime Rancher has continued to draw in players, new and old, for a unique first-person exploration and farming simulation experience.

 

“This milestone is a reminder of just how far Slime Rancher has taken us,” said Nick Popovich, co-founder and CEO of Monomi Park. “It all began with a leap of faith and a weird idea, and grew into something that has been enjoyed by millions and built the foundation for an amazing company.”

Slime Rancher was first made available on Steam via early access in January of 2016 and offered a simple story of adventurer Beatrix LeBeau starting her new life on a distant planet, the Far, Far Range. It officially launched in August of 2017 and has since won critical acclaim and recognition in the British Academy Games Awards show, The Golden Joystick Awards, Best of Game Informer, as well as performing as a top seller on Steam, the Epic Games store, Xbox, and PlayStation. Today, the game includes dozens of free content updates, free DLC, and a free VR Playground on Steam that allows players to get booped by slimes in virtual reality.

“I'd like to thank everyone who has supported Monomi Park and the art we produce,” Popovich continued. ”Your support is the only reason we are able to dream our dreams and build our worlds. And I hope you're excited for more because the adventures on the Far, Far Range have only just begun!”
