Slime-san Nintendo Switch demo

Get your sticky fingers on a free Slime-san demo on the Nintendo Switch.

Slime-san, the kinda cute, kinda gross platformer – where you play as a ball of goop having to make its way through a giant worm’s innards – is an interesting little oddity. It’s fast-paced, precise, and difficult; like Super Meat Boy, but with green slime trails instead of, er, meaty goop.

The full Slime-san experience totals 100 levels made out of 400 rooms; combined with 100 new game+ levels that brings the total to 200 levels and 800 rooms. That’s quite the large floor plan for the inside of a pixel art worm, I’m sure you’d agree.


The Nintendo Switch demo for Slime-san – which is available now, by the way – features just the first 10 levels of the game proper for you to get your teeth into. You’ll also get access to the game’s hub world town; again, this is a really big worm.

And if you weren’t convinced enough by the use of the word ‘free’, here’s a trailer for the Switch version of Slime-san:

We have a favour to ask

Thumbsticks has a couple of main aims. We want to write interesting articles and cover games that most outlets won't, and we want to give opportunities to new writers and new voices. And right now, with the current state of online publishing? It's tough! We hate to ask, but if you want us to continue writing what others won't, or to keep covering weird indie games, or to be able to give opportunities to new writers – and only if you can afford it – then please consider supporting us on Patreon.
