About This Game

GROW YOUR GRANDPA!

In Growing My Grandpa! you take the role of Adrienne, an intensely introverted little girl in an unhappy home. She is as creative as she is shy. In a trash-strewn basement that appeared to be the site of a strange scientific study, Adrienne discovers a weird secret that defies all but the most imaginative biological explanations. With a desperate wish, she begins raising a powerful entity who she knows as her Grandpa. Given a little food, it begins to grow. Spoken with a bit, it begins to have conversations. However, this entity abides by a strange and deadly logic, and Adrienne must discover the secrets of the basement if she is to have a chance at a happy life. Growing My Grandpa! has an average playtime of about 90 minutes.
