Slime Rancher 2 just launched into Early Access today and it's already racked up nearly 1,000 "overwhelmingly positive" Steam reviews and smashed the studio's previous sales day record.

Monomi Park CEO and Slime Rancher series director Nick Popovich told GamesRadar+ earlier in the year that the sequel "feels just like Slime Rancher, only smoother, more expansive, more rich in details, and with a lot of tweaks and quality of life changes," and it seems new and long-time fans are enjoying the heck out of the result.

Steam's review section (opens in new tab) is "overwhelmingly positive" overall, and there are 896 reviews that fall under that category at the time of writing.

For a casual indie game on its first day in Early Access, that's a staggering amount of positivity in user reviews. Popovich also took to Twitter (opens in new tab) to announce that Slime Rancher 2 had topped the studio's previous best sales day "by a literal order of magnitude." I reached out to Popovich to congratulate him and Monomi Park on the sequel's successful launch, and we were told everyone at the studio is "totally blown away" by the reaction.
