We all know that April 1 is known as “April Fool Day,” so generally, people don’t believe anyone on that day. But the publishers of Poop Slinger, Limited Rare Games, have a habit of surprising their fans. They made an announcement about the release of the game on April 1, 2019, but no one believed them. Well, the game was already available on the market by Diggidy.net, but people didn’t pay attention to this game.
