Polygon awarded it a 7/10, Eurogamer gave it a 3/5 and over on Steam 82% of the 2,506 reviews are positive. Cheryl Vance, a Game Designer at Prideful Sloth spoke about the world of Grow: Song of the Evertree and wanting the players to feel welcomed.

“We loved instilling a sense of peace in our players with Yonder, and we want to continue that feeling with Grow […] We wanted Alaria to be a place where the player feels welcomed. That the worlds they grow, and the towns they build, are unique and personal to them. That it becomes their own home away from home.”

Once you’ve created a world, you can build a town using the large array of buildings at your disposal.

Additionally, players will be able to go fishing, catch bugs and help out their communities. Furthermore, players will be able to embark on exciting adventures to solve puzzles and spelunk in caves.
