The exciting new deal will see Nelvana expand the Slime Rancher brand as global licensing agent for consumer products in key categories including toys, publishing, apparel, and accessories. “With over 2 million units sold and over 10 million total downloads, Slime Rancher has proven to be a fan- favourite.

Slime Rancher is a charming, first-person, video game experience, featuring a courageous, young rancher named Beatrix LeBeau who sets out for an adventurous life one-thousand light years away from planet earth on the ‘Far, Far Range.’ Created for children six to eleven, Slime Rancher allows users to play as Beatrix LeBeau, as they collect colourful slimes, grow crops, harvest resources, and explore the untamed wilds through the mastery of an all-purpose vacpack.
