“Growbot's artwork is utterly charming.”
Rock Paper Shotgun

“The art, animation, and sound design of Growbot are all wonderful, and more than once I've lost track of time while exploring the colorful biopunk space station. I may not know quite what's going on or how this beautiful and surreal world really works, but I sure am enjoying being in it.”
PC Gamer

“Beautiful artwork, charming characters and an intriguing narrative.”
Alpha Beta Gamer


  • "Growbot is an incredible game that deserves to be experienced by everyone, regardless of age or gender. It’s such a unique and heart-warming experience, one that must be lived rather than described with words. Let this masterpiece transport you in a “children’s book”-like world, full of emotion, color and make you forget about the daily problems for a few hours."

  • "Growbot is, directly, an interactive work of art that we are going to thank very much for having played. Although he did not invent the wheel at any time, the union of all its elements form an incredible game, very careful and that transmits sensations in every minute of play. From here we can only recommend its purchase without fear, as it is one of those works that remain in the memory over the years."

  • "Growbot is a game which is soothing for the soul. It doesn't make you feel upset, it doesn't stress you out, it just lets you loose in its dream world, and by the time you wake up, the credits are already rolling."

  • "Growbot one of the most curious, carefully crafted and full of emotion experiences that I have been able to experience in the last few months. And I urge anyone who wants to enjoy something precious, particular and emotional, not to pass it by and come to this curious and magical world of robots, plants, and very special beings."

  • "If you like art, a feel-good narrative with a decent selection of puzzles, this cute point and click is an interstellar trip you should take."
    82/100 -

  • "In Growbot we experience a hand-drawn adventure with a story that is easy to digest and great visual and auditory elements that are bursting with indie charm. The gameplay is mainly based on solving various puzzles. Overall, the title's playing time could definitely be longer, but fans of puzzle gameplay will nonetheless have a good time with Growbot."

  • "Growbot is a candy that you savour with pleasure. You can feel the love behind every scene, every character and every musical note, the same love that is inevitably transferred to the player. Wabisabi Play's work feels like a fish in water among its drawings and colours, which fill the screen with an incomparable sense of peace. I wish I could move in with the Nara and the Growbots."
    80/100 -, Spain

  • "Growbot is slow but never boring, beautiful but never shallow and rich in sound but never obtrusively scored. Lisa Evans has managed to turn her vision into a point-and-click that doesn't need to hide from its inspirations."
