Slime Rancher 2 sales: Sim devs staggered.

Slime Rancher is a farming game in which you capture cute alien slimes and put them into a hoover-style gun. Then, you can spit them out into pens. It was first released in 2016 and has since become a beloved classic.

Monomi Park had hoped to release the sequel to their classic game September 22. They were hoping that the game would sell more than 100,000 copies in its 24 hour period. They've achieved a lot more than they expected, as CEO and co-founder Nick Popovich revealed some incredible sales figures.

He tweeted just hours after the release: "I had a pipedream in my head that we would sell 100,000 copies of Slime Rancher 2 within the first 24 hours, if the stars aligned."

"We completed it in six hours. We have no idea where this train is going, but we are so thankful to have had the opportunity to ride it. We are so grateful to you all.

This has turned out to be Monomi Park’s most successful release. Popovich revealed that "the last hour had beaten our greatest sales day ever at Monomi Park by an literal order of magnitude."

He continued, "Absolutely overwhelmed right now. Just staggering." "Thank you to all."

Slime Rancher is a favorite of mine. Monomi Park's sim life was a great way to cool down when I was struggling with my university undergrad dissertation. It was the only thing I remember from university, and it made me laugh as much as the little guy in the above image.
