About Rise of the Slime
Rise of the Slime offers a unique mix of deep, tactical deck-builder gameplay with the chill vibes of a side-scrolling adventure. Help Slime overcome the odds by playing insanely powerful cards in turn-based, positional combat against a bunch of baddies—though you just might feel terrible dousing them with acid.
With the help of fancy hats and pet companions to spice up your adventures, you’ll traverse beautiful and exotic lands, from sizzling fire swamps to toxic marshlands to a breezy unfurling garden populated by sexy radishes!
In Rise of the Slime, you’ll experience:
- Turn-based combat alongside real-time exploration, offering a unique mix of roguelike and deck builder.
- Positional mechanics, matching your wits against enemies. Strategically quick step, push, and flip behind enemies to gain the advantage in combat. Use your cards wisely!
- A visually appealing art style, with striking, colorful characters, cards, and environments.
- Extensive replay value with gameplay mutators, shifting routes, and hundreds of deck build variations (100 magical cards at launch!). Each playthrough of Rise of the Slime is different!
