B.U.D. isn’t a baby anymore. The blocky robot is ready to leave its world and explore the moon.
At Ubisoft’s press briefing today ahead of the Electronic Entertainment Expo in Los Angeles, the publisher announced Grow Up, which is coming to PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC this August. Grow Up is the sequel to Grow Home, an adorable climbing game that originally started as an animation experiment at developer Ubisoft Reflections. You play as B.U.D. (the Botanical Utility Droid), who must take his first steps in a new world by bouncing, shooting, and catapulting himself through the air with beanstalk-like Star plants.
GamesBeat reviewer Gavin Greene gave Grow Home a 65/100 last year, saying it’s worth getting for the cool tech, but that it will also “take some serious dedication for players to want to get back up after you land.”
You can watch the trailer for Grow Up below.
