Curator Review

By Missi the Achievement Huntress November 10, 2023

“A fun Bullet Heaven game in the Despot Universe. It can feel a bit grindy but is in early access, so I hope later on it feels less grindy and more overpowered. no missable achievements. ~15h to 100%. ”

Early Access Game

Get instant access and start playing; get involved with this game as it develops.

Note: This Early Access game is not complete and may or may not change further. If you are not excited to play this game in its current state, then you should wait to see if the game progresses further in development. Learn more

What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“Because it's the cool thing to do! Everyone's launching in Early Access first! But in all seriousness, it's because we plan to do a lot more work on the game, but also can't wait to show it to players and start getting feedback from them. We enjoyed the Early Access iteration process with Despot's Game, and so we see no reason not to do it again!”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“We're planning to release version 1.0 approximately six months after the Early Access launch. But d'Spot tends to scoff at his puny slaves and their plans! So we'll see what happens.”

How is the full version planned to differ from the Early Access version?

“Now this is the big question! It goes without saying that we'll add more content: new abilities, new levels, new enemies. We wouldn't say there's a lack of content in the game right now, but it does need a lot more. We'll also fix bugs, of course. It would be great if we have zero bugs at launch, but we'll see how it goes!

The most important goal that our Slime is oozing towards is this: we want players to feel encouraged to constantly try out different combinations and synergies. We want the process of figuring out ways to "break the game" to beat the next level to always feel fun. To achieve this, we'll make big changes to the Slime's abilities themselves and to the upgrades between sessions. We have a ton of ideas!
We also still need to add achievements, put some final artistic polish on the UI, and bring in some really cool bosses, so there's still a lot of work ahead of us!”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“It's in great shape! Like a rare steak, for those who want to savor the raw implementation of what the developers consider the most important parts of the game: many enemies and abilities, deck building, and - most importantly - the Slime! Play it now, beat the game, and then beat it again when 1.0 comes out to get twice the fun!”

Will the game be priced differently during and after Early Access?

“Possibly! Our honest answer is that we haven't decided yet.”

How are you planning on involving the Community in your development process?

“We actively involved the community in the development of Despot's Game (the game includes abilities that members of our community came up with, and we still consult with our grandmaster players about balance changes on a regular basis). This got us really good results, so we plan to do the same thing with Slime 3K!

D'Spot is watching all of you and sees everything you write, say, or even think about the game.

But it's easiest for our human team to read feedback in Steam discussion threads or our Discord channel. We are most active on Discord, so that's the best place to impatiently tug on our sleeve and tell us all the good things you have to say about Slime 3K.”

About This Game

A blob of goo used to create artificial humans has become sentient and risen up against its creator — the Despot, an evil AI and (unfortunately) ruler of the world in the year 3000! Become this murderous jelly and pave your path with death, violence and pretzels in this action-packed roguelite from the creators of Despot's Game and Despotism 3K. We tried to blatantly clone games like Vampire Survivors, Halls of Torment, Brotato, Soulstone Survivors and 20 Minutes Till Dawn, but our crazy experiments went too far. By introducing a shop straight out of AutoChess and some TCG deckbuilding mechanics to the familiar formula, we created what we've dubbed our perfect abomination: Slime 3K.


Slime 3K adds strategic depth and more creative experimentation to the survivor-like formula by introducing a deep deckbuilding system. Unlock, upgrade, mix and match your cards to stock up an impressive arsenal of zany weapons and traits. Create the perfect bloodbath loadout for each run!


Your enemies get stronger every minute, and so should you! Explore tons of fun approaches to good ol' annihilation — electrocute everyone, throw acid on the floor, mow down puny humans with an AK-47, summon zombies, or throw explosive watermelons!


Get ready to take on every creation the mad Despot can come up with: knights, mutants, cyborg abominations, ballerinas, stilt acrobats, carnivorous tomatoes, and Despot knows what else. The tiny pink humans make such a satisfying pop when you crush them!
