I've watched a couple of different of YouTubers' series playing the game. I'm sure you'll figure things out; my impression is that it's a pretty well designed game, with no one "right" way that things have to be done, and that it does a pretty well of showing off it's mechanics.Our daughter and I are playing Slime Rancher. We have no idea what we’re doing. She seems a bit more with it than I do. Whatever it is that we’re doing, it’s super cute.
It really is a super cute game, though. I love the aesthetic, and it seems a really nice mix of rewarding grind and exploring a beautiful world.
