Growbot Is a Point and Click About a Robot Trying to Save Her Home
Save your space station from crystals in this adorable looking title set to launch next year.
From the salty shores of Brighton lives a freelance illustrator known as Lisa Evans who is part of a tiny development studio Wabisabi Play. The studio is creating a title called Growbot, a point-and-click that follows the story of Nara, a robot that attempts to save her home from a dark crystalline force that’s growing through the station.
Growbot is set onboard a biopunk space station that is covered with futuristic plants and populated with aliens. The 2D adventure allows players to experience a game inspired by titles such as Loom, and Machinarium. The game is being published by Application Systems Heidelberg, who is also publishing Mutropolis, another point-and-click title.
Players are able to interact with the plants and aliens around the space station, as well as repairing the machinery. Puzzles are present in the usual point and click style and players can collect the “sounds of flowers” and combine them to create powerful shields. Additionally, players will be learning of a tale as well as making friends with a hologram called “Star Belly” who has a galaxy inside.
The art style from Lisa Evans looks stylistic and complemented by the music from Jessica Fichot. You can see what the game looks like in action in the teaser trailer below. A demo of Growbot was the be playable at EGX Rezzed, but due to the coronavirus outbreak, the event was postponed until summer 2020.
Growbot is still yet to have an official release date, but it’s expected to arrive sometime in Q1 2021 and currently plans to be available for PC, Mac, and Linux.
