Slime Rancher [Steam, GOG] is the seriously cute and fun Early Access game that just got a huge update involving SCIENCE.
This game just has so much going for it, I seriously think when it hits a full release it will be huge. It's great for kids and adults alike!
The new update adds in the ability to unlock "The Lab" which enables you to make various gadgets. You need blueprints to make gadgets, which you can get at a new shop. It's not cheap though, at 10,000 credits it will take you a while to unlock it. I think this is good, as people before have said the game didn't last long. It won't really take that long really, when you setup a nice farm 1-2 hours in that sort of money won't be difficult.
What excites me a lot, is the fact that they have their own version of loot now too. You can now find Treasure Pods scattered across the game, which may contain blueprints. You can see such a pod below which I found:
There are 45 gadgets in the game right now, with even more planned. This is again great, as previously the game just hasn't had enough content.
On top of that massive feature set, the game also has new areas to explore, a VSync toggle, and other various improvements.

These guys are doing Early Access right. Lots of updates, often with a lot of good content! I highly recommend checking it out, especially now!
