Independent game developer Monomi Park has unveiled a major new update for their hit game Slime Rancher 2, dubbed “Gadgets My Way.” This transformative update, available now for free, allows players unprecedented freedom in designing and interacting with their ranch on the colorful Rainbow Island.
Rethink and Rebuild With Imagination
At the heart of the Gadgets My Way update is a new system for gadget placement and creativity.
Players can now position gadgets anywhere they want, no longer bound to restrictive building grids.
This opens up Rainbow Island for imaginative rebuilding, allowing players to create the ranch of their dreams.
The expanded gadget functionality enables you to place items exactly where you want them for customized slime reactions.
With themed decorative pieces, you can craft memorable storybook or holiday settings tailored to your favorite slimes. Lean into pure creative chaos or an intricately designed masterpiece – the only limit is your imagination.
Optimized for Discovery and Engagement
Supporting the new creative options, Monomi Park overhauled Slime Rancher 2’s building systems for smoother functionality. Improved construction tools, streamlined discovery of slimes and gadgets, and catalog organization updates offer a tighter experience as you create a one-of-a-kind ranch.
Slime Rancher 2 also adds 36 all-new gadgets and treasures at launch, bringing interacting objects like the Disco Ball, Boom Box, and Stocking Decoration.
These enhance the whimsical nature of life on Rainbow Island, expanding the ways you can engage with the slimes populating your ranch.
Slime Rancher 2 Performance Improvements and Accessibility
In addition to the headlining creativity updates, the Gadgets My Way update packs UI revisions, gameplay optimization, and other improvements. These changes aim to polish the existing Slime Rancher 2 experience for smoother, more accessible play.
Both new players and existing Slime Rancher 2 owners can jump into the update – the former by purchasing the game for $29.99 on Xbox Series X/S or Windows PC, the latter through a free automatic patch.
After selling over 6 million copies and charming over 15 million fans to date, Monomi Park continues to show their stated commitment to inclusive and innovative game development with this player-focused update.
