Hardcore Mode

If you’re a seasoned slime rancher I would recommend taking on “Slime Rancher’s Extreme Mode”. All 18 rules are still in effect, with the added risk that you might die. You can’t even die. You will be punished by the honor system if you do.
I can only tell you that if one or more of these rules are being tried, have fun. If you’re trying the harder mode, good luck.
You will need it.
