Corus Entertainment’s Nelvana has signed a global licensing partnership with independent game studio Monomi Park for its award-winning game Slime Rancher.

The deal will see Nelvana expand the Slime Rancher brand into toys, publishing, apparel, accessories and other key consumer product categories.

“With over two million units sold and over 10 million total downloads, Slime Rancher has proven to be a fanfavourite,” says Mellany Masterson, VP, Global Consumer Products and International Distribution, Nelvana Enterprises. “The game taps into creature-collecting with its wide variety of slimes, and we look forward to bringing this unique concept to life with consumer products for audiences around the globe.”


Slime Rancher is a charming, first-person video game experience set 100 light years away from planet Earth. Created for a core audience of children aged six to 11, Slime Rancher allows users to play as Beatrix LeBeau, as they collect colourful slimes, grow crops, harvest resources and explore the untamed wilds through the mastery of an all purpose vacpack.

“We are thrilled to announce Nelvana as the global licensing agent for Slime Rancher,” said Nick Popovich, CEO, Monomi Park. “We can’t wait to see what wiggly adventures are in store for Beatrix and the slimes, as the Slime Rancher brand expands into all sorts of cool stuff outside the game world we’ve created.”
