Today, Ubisoft announced a new game titled Grow Home.
Developed by Ubisoft Reflections, Grow Home is being described as an “experimental vertical adventure game” and is set to release on PC via Steam on February 4th for $9.99.
Grow Home was started as an experiment within the Reflections studio by eight developers. Players take on the role of BUD (Botanical Utility Droid), an excitable, child-like robot sent on a mission to search the galaxy for a new species of plant that can oxygenate his home world. Players are free to explore the strange, open world full of floating islands, caves and waterfalls. By growing and directing the giant Star Plant into a towering organic sculpture, players will reshape the planet and create a magnificent landscape that lets them climb to new heights.
“Whether it’s BUD’s charming, procedurally-generated animation, the awesome structure of the Star Plant players create or the beautiful landscapes, there is a peaceful, innocent vibe about Grow Home that makes the game utterly unique,” says Reflections Studio Producer Pete Young.
