Ubisoft's Grow Home [official site] was unveiled barely two weeks ago, and is out now. Beginning as an experiment in procedural animation, it's finished as a genuinely delightful little project. BUD, a heartbreakingly charming little robot, is charged with growing a giant plant up through floating islands, in some effort to re-oxygenate the Earth. Doesn't matter. What matters is his gorgeously stumbling, clumsy movement, and the giggly delight of having him climb. I stumble and giggle through the first forty-five minutes of the game, below.
