In an upsetting confirmation that February is in fact winter (and that the year doesn’t just start with summer like my brain thinks it should) publisher Whitethorn Games held a 2024 Winter Showcase, where they revealed the existance of a game that answers the question “what if the slimes in Slime Rancher were in mortal peril, and had swords?”. The answer is apparently “be ruddy heroes in a cute Soulslike”. I think this game, too, looks very cute, although Slime Heroes doesn’t have a release window yet.
You know what does have a launch date now? Botany Manor, a lovely 3D puzzle game about growing plants, which I first learned about via the Steam Next Fest demo, and with which I immediately fell in love. I am heartened to know it is coming out really quite soon – April 9th. A mere two months from now!
