What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“We want to grow the game and feel we can offer more if we have direct and hands-on feedback from players as we develop the core systems of our game. We want to build a community of like-minded gamers with a love for older and current turn-based strategy games.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“At our current progress, we see a timeframe of between 6 months & 1 year for us to arrive at a build that is polished enough for a full release.”

How is the full version planned to differ from the Early Access version?

“More areas than the Academy. In the Alpha, you will be able to collect, train and battle with various companions (we plan to include at least one of each typing) along with the academy level. The Alpha will contain only the Academy level so we can maximise the refinement of our battle system, crafting system and other fundamental systems. We think this will help maximise the user experience while helping us create a well-developed game. The final release version will include the story mode along with additional areas to explore.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“In-Development. We are currently pushing out a new build every week with updates. As the game grows along with our team we may push out up to 2-3 updates and bugfixes each week. So far we are on 'Pre-Alpha Build 0.6', we have just implemented the core of our systems. now we are making the assets for the academy level and models to be used in battles.”

Will the game be priced differently during and after Early Access?

“We plan to gradually raise the price as we ship new content and features.”

How are you planning on involving the Community in your development process?

“We plan to use our Website and email list along with social media to drive user engagement. We continually share regular updates on both YouTube and via our Website of any progress made on the game. We also will be reaching out to influencers for unbiased reviews and gameplay in hope that it will drive players to the game. We will also be running ads for a trailer of the game to gain wider exposure.”

About This Game

Collect, Craft, and Battle! After crash-landing on an alien planet, you find your sibling missing. Playing as either Kenji or Lucy, you’ll have to venture out into this dangerous planet in search of your kin. Battle and scan wild monsters to acquire new moves for battle, unlock different types, and build Growbots of your very own to fight alongside you.

Classic RPG gameplay!

Growbots is an RPG at its core, calling upon the same mechanics that made the genre’s classics great. It features vast customizability in types, movesets, and stats which means no two units will be identical, and there is a great deal of importance to your choices. Couple this with Active Turn-Based Combat and Item Crafting to explore a wealth of possibilities.

Growbots is going to be a new spin on the monster-collecting genre, while remaining truthful to its RPG roots, and we need YOU to join us on this journey.

Active Turn-based Combat!

Fight in a real time Turn-Based combat system with up to eight party members against wild monsters and trainers alike! Quick decision making is key, as both you and your opponent’s ability to fight is determined by how fast you react. Turn order is dictated by the agility-based ATB Bar, and once it’s your turn, you better be ready, your time to act is limited.

Strike out with Overcharge moves!

The more you fight, the more your Overcharge meter fills. Once charged, you’ll have an ultra-powerful Overcharge move at your disposal. You can use it immediately to take down your current foe, or save it for a future battle, the choice is yours!

Crafting and buying items for battle!

As you traverse this foreign land, you’ll come across a variety of different materials. Gather them to craft items which will aid you in battle. Anything from healing to scanners can be manufactured or bought from vendors for your use in the troubles that come your way.

Scanning and Dna!
In order to grow your own Growbot, you must use a crafted item called a Scanner. From the weaker Basic Scanner to the advanced Ultra Scanner, use them on wild monsters to acquire ‘Scan-Data’. Gather enough ‘Scan-Data’ and ‘Dna’, a resource dropped from defeated monsters, and you can incubate and grow your Growbot. ‘Scan-Data’ can also be used to unlock new types and to unlock moves unique to the scanned monsters.

Your Growbot and You.

Growbots come in all shapes and sizes, and even those of the same species are unique from one another since they can be customized in many different ways.
- When they level up, some stats are randomly distributed, but you can also use Reserve Points gained on level ups to manually alter stats.
- You can have up to three moves equipped, learning moves from level ups and scanning.
- Once all types are unlocked through scanning, you can freely change their two types between a total of eight at any time you want. Types change not only their playstyles and moves learned as you level up, but also their color palettes.
- 1/1500 Growbots will be Glitched, further changing the color palette.

Growbots: Battle Academy features eight types as follows:

Basic: The most elementary type, it has well-rounded moves, and features grey colors.
Flame: A strong offensive type, it sports high damaging moves, and features dark orange colors.
Aqua: A buffing type, it uses stat-boosting moves, and features blue colors.

Alien: An ailment based type, it afflicts status effects, and features pink colors.
Cosmic: A glass cannon type, it utilizes powerful moves that leave it vulnerable, and features purple colors.

Each type also has its own strengths and weaknesses to other types.
