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.

    Megido @Moonwalker: There's no substituting playing with real players. Playing with bots too much will just give bad habits :) (3 Hours ago)

    Moonwalker better already. These matches can get quite tense and hectic and that's great. Really digging the diversity of these characters and their abilities. (3 Hours ago)

    Megido @GriftGFX: Just prepare your butthole for that Spatha. 90% of everyone just plays Centurion now, at least that's what it feels like. (18 Hours ago)
