Ubisoft has debuted the announcement trailer for the Gone Home, a vertical adventure game inspired by the likes of WALL-E and “Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy.”
In Grow Home, you play as BUD (Botanical Utility Droid), a robot on a mission to save his home planet by harvesting the seeds of a giant alien plant. On his quest, BUD will discover a beautiful world of floating islands that are home to some rather strange plants and animals. Grow the giant plant and use your unique climbing abilities to reach ever higher ground, but be careful…one wrong move and it’s a long way down!
“We think of the Star Plant like a giant beanstalk,” says Producer Pete Young. “BUD’s mission is to grow it to maturity and harvest the seeds it produces. The plant ends up being a towering two-kilometer-high bridge from the ground to his space ship.”
Grow Home features a control scheme giving players direct individual control of both of BUD’s hands, which they will use to push, pull and grab objects all over the Star Planet.
Grow Home will debut on PC via Steam on February 4.
