Ubisoft presents Grow Home PC, will arrive on February 4
Together with its big names, Ubisoft has released in recent times some ‘small’ gems that have garnered great reviews and have come to be sold exclusively in digital ‘stores’. This applies to Child of Light or Valiant Hearts, her even mobile devices.
Now Grow Home we have a title with experimental intentions will come to PC next February 4 through Steam, and which bears the signature of the development group Reflections. Indeed! Sure that you know to be the parents of the franchise Driver, Ubisoft also.
Grow Home was not born as a video game but as an experiment to investigate the possibilities of procedural animation. This sounds a little weird, means that BUD, botanical Android starring the jeugo, has no predefined movements but they are generated in real time, depending on the circumstances and needs of what is happening on screen.
How he became a video game? Well after creating the character and environment, the guys Reflections conceded them a story where we travel to a planet with the mission of growing life again, favoring the germination of all types of plants. And from that point, they saw that it was feasible to create a small game that had all the makings of a ‘unique’ experience.
The development is extremely original because we are facing an open world shaped island and whose only way to grow is the vertical. Thus in Grow Home will be critical scale, searching the caves, waterfalls and corners that leave each world to be finding materials that sprout new life.
According to Ubisoft “The world of Grow Home is constructed by vertical scanning with mechanical climbing […] that offers the player an unprecedented freedom of movement. The player can control the hands of BUD independently moving each to cling to any surface when needed while climbing the giant Star Plant “.
Take a look at the video and enjoy your graphical section , which returns us (speaking) to those 90s when 3D environments were filled polygons ‘flat’ decorated only with spot colors. Something that Ubisoft Reflections and seem to have feared to recover in this Grow Home .
