About the game

Uligo: A Slime's Hike offers a good challenge. Its gameplay requires precision and skillful execution of controls. However, a lot of options are available to customize the experience which may prove too difficult or inadequate for some. They allow the player to change the game’s speed, colors, remove background motion, move on-screen visuals (HUD) and much more!

This is Nôrdika Studio’s mission: to develop the most accessible games possible. Whether by proposing various adjustable options or by using universal design solutions, it is important for the studio to offer the chance to play to as many people as possible. Uligo: A Slime's Hike is a stepping stone to more accessible games and a fraction of what the studio plans to do in the future. Stick around!

Main features of the game

  • Stick to everything, really everything!

As a slime, your sticky body allows you to move on walls and ceilings. Use this perk to move through a series of levels strewn with various challenges and obstacles. Be careful, even the stickiest slime can't stick to the walls forever, efficiency and speed are paramount!

  • Collect fallen stars to reform constellations.

On your way, you will encounter several stars that have fallen from the sky. Collect all the stars in a constellation to return it to its former glory. Only the most daring slimes can hope to achieve such a feat.

  • Customize your slime with a unique color and hat combination

Express your personality through your slime. You want it red, it will be. You prefer purple, no problem. Sport a cap, a rainbow, a Christmas hat, a beret and more, but before that, you’ll have to find them. Explore the levels and discover the panoply of hats hidden there!
