July 09, 2017
We love Machinarium. There's no doubt about it. That's why we're very happy to see there are people who are working on point and click adventures that are all about robots saving their home, all the while exploring an aesthetically flawless world. Fortunately, it seems that Growbot will finally give us something to revel about.
Although a release date is yet to be announced, the official Steam page has some screenshots and a teaser trailer that give us just a glimpse of the puzzles we can expect in Growbot. And yes, they manage to give off a strong Machinarum vibe, which is exactly what we want!
Official game description:
Growbot is a 2D point-and-click adventure game in which you play as Nara, a student growbot on her first day of captaincy training on board a space station. Before you can learn more about your new home's ecosystem of alien flowers and strange creatures, an attack by an unknown force infests the station with large and quickly growing crystals. Communication is cut off, and so you venture out of your room in search of your captain. Along the way you must make new friends, fix the station's strange machinery, and discover the origins of the crystalline force spreading throughout the station.
