Grow Home the wacky-looking, but intriguing game from Ubisoft's Reflections studio is now officially available for us Linux and SteamOS folk. It has a lot of good reviews, and I'm looking forward to trying it. Our editor flesk may be doing a review of it sometime, so look out for that.

The updated version now available isn't just limited to SteamOS and Linux support, it also adds in official Steam Controller support for it (woohoo!).

About the game (Official)
In Grow Home you play as BUD (Botanical Utility Droid), a robot on a mission to save his home planet by harvesting the seeds of a giant alien plant. On his quest BUD will discover a beautiful world of floating islands that are home to some rather strange plants and animals.

Grow the giant plant and use your unique climbing abilities to reach ever higher ground, but be careful…one wrong move and it’s a long way down!

You can find Grow Home on Steam right now.

That is... surprising!

As a Ubi developer, I didn't expect that ;)

Steam Machines showing their impact!

Next game: Assassin's Creed? Watch Dogs? Far Cry? We can dream! Maybe not too much... lol

They certainly moved quickly though it was only 5 days ago that we got the first signs of steamos movement on steamdb; hopefully this is a sign of what has been happening in the background to the steamos release...

at least we can hope.

Could you port Watch Dogs, please? ;)

Haha, probably none of the above. Grow Home is a Unity game, so "porting" costs are negligible, and it has no uPlay requirement, which would put the kabosh on any of the others getting a Linux port.

Gads, but I'm tired of developers and companies who say "available for PC" when they mean "available for Windows ." We're all, Windows, Mac and Linux users alike, using PCs. it doesn't stand for Windows, it stands for Personal Computer.
