The Ubisoft name has all too quickly become synonymous with AAA titles and system requirements high enough to make a grown assassin weep. Now though it's handed the reins over to its UK-based developer Ubisoft Reflections for an altogether more low-key and experimental affair - Grow Home. Taking direct control over the limbs of a robot named BUD, the player must grow and climb a gigantic star plant to reach new lands, dynamically altering the world in a non-linear fashion.

Grow Home's beautiful angular, cel-shaded graphics are certainly eye-catching, but at what cost? To find out whether its the next AC Unity or an altogether more forgiving beast, read and check out the official Grow Home system requirements.

That's better isn't it? You can cast away the Unity gloom with Grow Home's system spec requirements, because is nowhere near the same scale. The minimum requirements for Grow Home are pretty low, and are indicative of an indie-like title not trying to push the boundaries of what hardware is capable of. The RAM and install size requirements are pretty paltry, and the thing you're going to want to worry about most is probably the graphics card. They're mid-tier cards cards pushing on for five years old now though, so most PC gamers should have this covered.

The recommended requirements for Grow Home are obviously significantly more demanding, but there's nothing here that should prove too worrying for most. Gamepad is also probably a must in Grow Home; each of the robot's arms are controlled individually with each analogue stick, which we imagine is difficult to replicate on keyboard and mouse.
