Ubisoft Reflections Set To Release Gone Home In February

Ubisoft must be praised with its diversity in the games that it seeks to release. It’s not all Assassin’s Creed, Far Cry, and Tom Clancy games. They’ve a number of family friendly titles as well that border on indie or experimental in nature (as in one of my personal favorites, Child of Light).

This time, Ubisoft is ‘experimenting’ with a cutesy little vertical adventure game called Grow Home. Said to have been inspired by movies like Wall-E and Hitchhikers Guide To The Galaxy, Grow Home stars a little bot named BUD (Botanical Utility Droid) that is on a mission to discover new plant life to oxygenate his home world. On his travels he discovers a ‘Star Plant’ that is a growing vine-like plant. As BUD climbs the Star Plant by the player controlling his hands, upgrades, islands, caves, and crystals await him as the vine continues to grow as he ascends.

Available for PC via Steam on February 4, 2015, Grow Home is a labor of love by an eight person team from Ubisoft Reflections who also developed the game Driver: San Francisco. Interestingly enough the project was never intended for release but ended up being one of those simple yet addictive games that shot through the company until interest forced them to unleash it to the masses. We’ll see if it gets any traction.
