About Judy

As WP's managing editor, I edit review and preview articles, attempt to keep up with the frantic pace of Rainier's news posts, and keep our reviewers on deadline, which is akin to herding cats. When I have a moment to myself and don't have my nose in a book, I like to play action/RPG, adventure and platforming games.

'Grow Up' (ALL) Announced, Dated - Screens & Trailer

In Grow Up, players must guide little robot Bud around an entire alien world as he embarks on a dizzying mission that sees him jumping, rolling, bouncing and flying his way through a stunning open world.

Grow Up is an acrobatic adventure game and sequel to 2015's Grow Home. In Grow Up, players must guide little robot Bud around an entire alien world as he embarks on a dizzying mission that sees him jumping, rolling, bouncing and flying his way through a stunning open world.

While out exploring the galaxy, Bud's parental spaceship Mom falls to pieces after an unfortunate lunar accident. Her ship parts are scattered far and wide across an alien planet, and it's up to Bud to collect all the parts and get them back to the moon, so he can rebuild Mom and reunite with her once again.

"We wanted to give fans of Grow Home the chance to explore a world where there is no edge, no invisible wall to hit," said Pete Young, Producer at Reflections, a Ubisoft studio. "We can't wait for them to join BUD in Grow Up on a fantastical new adventure to the moon."

Working with new best friend Pod, an adorable flying robot who likes planets perhaps a little too much, Bud must use his abilities to traverse the planet. Using Bud's shiny new Floradex, players can put their own stamp on the world by cloning any of the 24 weird and wonderful plant types to catapult, shoot or float through the lush landscape. The title features new timed challenges, collectibles and abilities, so players can tackle their mission head-on or spend time navigating the landscape at their own pace.


Key Features:

  • A Whopping Great Planet: Grow Up throws you into an entire alien planet, enticing to explore and scattered with surprise discoveries and challenges. Get lost in the lush landscapes and craft your own adventures above the roaming lands. Bud's shiny new Floradex lets you put your stamp on the world by cloning any of the weird and wonderful plant types to catapult, shoot or float you on your way. And riding the giant Star Plants, that's still a thing.
  • Aerial Acrobatics: Why walk, when you can jump, roll, bounce or fly? With a raft of new abilities, BUD's aerial island hopping is an acrobatic joy. You'll find yourself leaping from mind-boggling heights, soaring between floating islands, bouncing off a Champoline and even flinging yourself from a Flungus.
  • To The Moon!: Bud is on a mission to save Mom, and it starts with one small step. From sea shore to lunar crater, pick your way through the alien landscape and ride the giant Star Plants as you strive to Grow Up. And when you look down from space, you'll marvel at a world changed by your journey.

Grow Up will be available digitally on Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC in August 2016.
