TORONTO, July 2, 2019 - Corus Entertainment's Nelvana, a world-leading international producer and distributor of children's animated and live action content, announced today its global licensing partnership with independent game studio, Monomi Park for its award-winning game, Slime Rancher.

The exciting new deal will see Nelvana expand the Slime Rancher brand as global licensing agent for consumer products in key categories including toys, publishing, apparel, and accessories.

With over 2 million units sold and over 10 million total downloads, Slime Rancher has proven to be a fan-favourite. said 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, featuring a courageous, young rancher named Beatrix LeBeau who sets out for an adventurous life one-thousand light years away from planet Earth on the Far, Far Range.' Created for children 6-11, 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.

For more information on Slime Rancher and Nelvana's licensing opportunities, please contact Tonya Lindo, Licensing Director, Nelvana Enterprises at nelvanalicensing@corusent.com.
