Growbot is a point-and-click adventure from the developers of Machinarium. In Growbot you explore beautifully drafted locations to find objects and solve puzzles.

Growbot is set in a fantastical yet lived-in "bio-punk" space station where you play as Nara, a robot in training to become a captain. When your space station home is attacked by rapidly growing crystals, it's down to you to save it.

It's a low pressure game that looks like a retro children's television show such as Bagpuss. You explore your space station and need to repair its machineries, collect the sounds of flowers, solve puzzles and meet a wide variety of plants and aliens.
