Slime-san is out for the Nintendo Switch from Headup Games

One giant worm, a slimy hero, hundreds of levels and an incredible, all-star soundtrack

Slime-san’s escape is available today on the Nintendo Switch!

Headup and Fabraz are oozing with pride, because Slime-san releases today on the Nintendo Switch.

Jump and slime your way through 100 levels in a unique 5-colored, pixelated world and escape from a giant worm’s innards. Feel the impact of your slime like never before with the HD Rumble you can only get on the Switch! Get your shopping done in Slumptown, a town full of survivors within the worm. Unlock different play styles, outfits, shaders and even multiplayer mini-games that can be played locally with one set of Joy-Cons!

Slime-san already received several awards and is developed by Fabraz, an independent development studio located in New York that also released the critically-acclaimed games Cannon Crasha and Planet Diver before.

Peep the trailer:

Slime-san was minding his own business, sliming around in a peaceful forest when suddenly…A giant worm appeared and gobbled him up!

Now deep within the worm’s belly, Slime-san has to face a decision: Be digested by the incoming wall of stomach acid… Or jump, slide and slime his way through the worm’s intestines and back out its mouth!
