Growtopia is a 2D creative sandbox platformer MMO game originally developed by Seth Robinson of Robinson Technologies alongside Mike Hommel of Hamumu Clubhouse. However, in February of 2017, game developing company Ubisoft bought the franchise for an unspecified amount of money.
Seth Robinson came up with the idea of Growtopia on 8 September 2012 and asked for his longtime friend and fellow independent game developer, Mike Hommel, to join in the project, in which Mike agreed to give it a shot. Growtopia was officially released on 9 January 2013. Since then, the game has been the most successful game Seth and Mike have ever made.
On 28 February 2017, Growtopia was acquired by Ubisoft. With its new headquarters in Ubisoft Abu Dhabi, a new team has since been working on the game, while the original developers are still supporting as advisors.
