Ubisoft has revealed a brand new idiosyncratic adventure game, Grow Home, which stars a Botanical Utility Droid (BUD) on a mission to save his world.

The droid’s mission is “to search the galaxy for a new species of plant that can oxygenate his home world”, Ubisoft said in a statement. The UK based developer, Ubisoft Reflections, describes the game as “quirky and experimental.”

“By growing and directing the giant Star Plant into a towering organic sculpture, players reshape the planet and create a magnificent landscape that lets them climb to new heights. The game’s unique climbing controls and abilities challenge players to continually reach for higher ground, but one wrong move and it’s a long way down.”

Grow Home launches February 4th on Steam.

  • Too close to Gone Home. Game looks great, but nothing explained. oh and its released in a week or two. Well I’m not getting it. I’m a UBIsoft shareholder. People will hate the game and it will still cause fires on PC.

      Agreed, it seems like an interesting game, I just fully expect it to tank.

      • But if they released it saying “unknown indie developer” people would praise it. Shareholders wouldn’t like it. I remember seeing on Steam how many people though Scott Pilgrim vs the World was an indie game. Nope 200 people in the credits put together by UBIsoft.

          By the way, I got your message on Skype, I’m assuming this means you’re interested in writing for Gamespresso? If so, I’d love to hear from you!
