With a release some ways off yet, Growbot has some of the most charming visuals I've seen in some time and for a point and click adventure it sure does look fantastic. I've been following this for some time, as the publisher Application Systems Heidelberg does a lot of great Linux work and they've now fully confirmed that Growbot will be available on Linux.

Inspired by titles like Loom and Machinarium, it tells the tell of a Growbot in training to become a captain aboard a beautiful biopunk space station. The station is attacked by some kind of rapidly growing crystals and it's down to you to point and click to save it.
