Slime Rancher on the Steam Deck

Our Verdict

8/ 10

8/10 – Slime Rancher is a chill casual game that fulfills my desire to have adorable farm animals without picking up literal poop.


Playing Slime Rancher on The Steam Deck

Slime Rancher 2 is just around the corner so it’s a great time to get reacquainted with the original! Slime Rancher is rated Playable on the Steam Deck, mostly, I think, because of the need to bring up the on screen keyboard manually.

I haven’t played for too long, but so far it is running excellently.

Control Settings and Question Marks

As someone who is hopelessly incapable of using controllers, Slime Rancher did give me a bit of trouble. For some reason during the tutorial all of the button images are just question marks.

Thankfully, it’s easy to find the Controller Layout.
