A game for kids and adults and it's an absolute joy to play. This new update adds quite a bit!

First up, the new area The Glass Desert, which the developer claims is the biggest and most challenging area added to the game yet. New slimes, resources, unique challenges and it looks fantastic. Firestorms can happen in The Glass Desert, so it's a tricky place to explore!

The Ancient Ruins areas has seen an expansion too, so it connects up with The Glass Desert.

There's even a new fancy skybox with dusk and dawn lighting and you might even be able to spot the Moon. There's also real time cloud formations, which sounds a bit fancy.

You can find the full changelog here. I'm looking forward to exploring it for sure, such a lovely game. This is one game that I hope has a really long life, they could continue to update it for a long time with new areas and new slimes, they have such a fantastic idea. Article taken from

Looks great, as always. The updates for this game feels more complete than any other EA games I have. Takes some time but I'm fine with that.

I am really worried to start playing this.
Afraid I won't be able to stop. :S:

Don't worry. When I play a lot, I just let it be for some time, then I start all over again, in a new game. Sometimes, addiction is good. :)
