Whitethorn Games, a publisher of inclusive, accessible, and easy-going games, such as Lake, Wychwood, and Calico, held their Winter Showcase on February 8, 2024, revealing several new games, announcements, and partnerships. Among them was Slime Heroes, a 3D action-adventure game that features cute slimes in a dangerous world, developed by Pancake Games.
The publisher also announced the release date for Botany Manor, a plant puzzle game that was previously featured in the Steam Next Fest demo. In this article, we will tell you more about Slime Heroes and Botany Manor, and what to expect from these games.
What is Slime Heroes?
Slime Heroes is a game that answers the question “What if the slimes in Slime Rancher were in mortal peril, and had swords?” The game is Soulslike, meaning that it is inspired by the Dark Souls series and its challenging combat, exploration, and progression.
However, the game also has a colorful and cartoony aesthetic and a whimsical tone, that contrasts with the dark and grim atmosphere of most Soulslikes.
In Slime Heroes, you play as one of the slimes, who are the last survivors of a cataclysmic event that wiped out most of the life on the planet. You must journey with your fellow slimes to save the world from the evil forces that threaten to destroy it.
Along the way, you will encounter enemies, bosses, puzzles, secrets, and friendly NPCs who will help you or hinder you.
The game features a dynamic combat system, where you can use different weapons, such as swords, axes, hammers, and bows, as well as special abilities, such as breathing fire or ice or transforming into different shapes.
You can also customize your slime with different colors, accessories, and outfits, to make it your own. The game also supports co-op, meaning that you can play with up to three other players online, and enjoy the adventure together.
When is the Slime Heroes Release Date?
The Slime Heroes release date is not confirmed yet, but the game is expected to launch sometime in 2024, for PC, PS5, and Xbox Series X/S. The game is being developed by Pancake Games, a new studio founded by Tomas Gomez, who previously worked on games such as Ori and the Blind Forest, Cuphead, and Hollow Knight.

What is Botany Manor?
Botany Manor is a game that combines puzzle-solving and gardening, in a beautiful and surreal 3D environment. The game was developed by Studio Beanstalk and was first introduced to the public as a demo during the Steam Next Fest in October 2023.
The game received positive feedback from players, who praised its relaxing and imaginative gameplay, as well as its charming graphics and music.
In Botany Manor, you play as a gardener who inherits a mysterious manor, where you discover a variety of strange and magical plants. You must use your gardening skills and tools to grow and care for these plants and unlock their secrets.
Each plant has a unique effect on the environment, such as clearing the air, opening doors, or creating bridges. You must use these effects to explore the manor and its surroundings and find out more about its history and mysteries.
The game features a non-linear and open-ended gameplay, where you can choose which plants to grow and which areas to visit, in any order you like. You can also customize your character and your garden, and collect various items and secrets along the way.
The game also has a relaxing and soothing atmosphere, where you can enjoy the sights and sounds of nature, and escape from the stress of the real world.
