Description

Grobo is a 2D puzzle platformer where you manipulate gravity to overcome hazards and obstacles to explore the world of Megatropolis. Launching later this year for iOS and Android!

History

Beginnings

Grobo started as a solo project in a Playcrafting NYC 8-week Unity course. A puzzle game about manipulating gravity, it was inspired by games like Portal and Braid. Originally meant to be a smaller project, it gained more support when Hot Chocolate Games was founded and looking for their first project. The simple mechanics paired with gravity-manipulating challenges has been a hit for puzzle lovers and casual gamers alike.

Development

Over the course of the next six months and with the team expanded from one to five, the game was reimagined. The mysteriously abandoned, metal world of Megatropolis was created, the cute, painterly aesthetic was adopted, and the types of gravity-bending obstacles were expanded. Then the team set to work. The game continued to evolve and after two and a half years of production, Grobo is ready to shift to your mobile devices.
