Card games tend to be nerdy, complex beasts on the Xbox, so it’s refreshing to come across one that’s aiming to be accessible. Rise of the Slime is a deckbuilder where you play a slime that’s been drawn onto a lollipop stick, and it has an easy charm that is hard to resist. Rise of the Slime is out now on Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, PS4, PS5, PC and Nintendo Switch.
Having been found kicking around on PC through Steam in Early Access form for over two years, Rise of the Slime has been announced for release on Xbox (Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S), PlayStation (point to PS4 and PS5), Nintendo Switch and full drop on PC.
Pirates Outlaws first released back in 2019, on PC through Steam, picking up some 'Very Positive' reviews in that time. But seafarers, roguelikes and card-battlers are extremely popular right now, and so it makes sense for launch on console too.
