Trying Grow Home is quite an experience. To tell you the truth, our first reaction to the game was basically "what the...?!!?" Clearly, Reflections' indie game is not really the kind of title you've played before, although the procedural animations and the exaggerated inertia of the main character may remind a bit of Octodad. It is however much simpler to play, with rather fun climbing mechanics (each trigger controls a hand, much like what the first Assassin's Creed wanted to include originally). If you're into exploration, gardening and Zen atmospheres, it might be worth a look. Honestly though, we haven't played long enough to tell you what we think about the game.
Update: Last video added.

A freeform 3D platformer with some of the cutest walking animations? Why haven't I bought this yet?! Gameplay #2 video totally sold me.

The clunky gameplay and physics are quite enjoyable. It's too bad 'Trespasser' wasn't made in this day and age. It would probably have been much more successful.

Man, loving this game right now. Made a video where I jumped off the waterfall island. Love the heights you can get to, and the procedural animation makes for hilarious moments.

    GriftGFX @MrWhite: No, not really. There are loads of examples of games with microtransactions that don't influence the game design or pollute the basic user experience. (7 Hours ago)

    MrWhite Could you imagine back when arena shooters like Q3A were very popular, and the cunts introduced pay to win bollocks like EA, 2k, Activision et al are doing? Imagine what that would have done. (10 Hours ago)

    MrWhite meanwhile on the other end, some kid who just bought the game is playing as Wigan, but they're playing like Real Madrid and giving your superstars a tanking. Time to dip into your pocket to buy packs (10 Hours ago)

    MrWhite Online play is so heavily scripted, your team inexplicably feels like a bunch of fat pub players in a sunday league side, and you're supposed to be in control of world class athletes (10 Hours ago)
