Growtopia was officially released on 11 January 2013. Since then, the game has been the most successful game Robinson and Hommel have ever made.

Gameplay in Growtopia consists primarily of open-ended sandbox mechanics, with the player being able to break and place blocks, plant and splice (combine) different kinds of seeds, edit block properties, and lock their world to protect it from harm. Players can travel to the worlds of other players and chat interactively with them. Newly created worlds are procedurally generated.
- Before its current name, "Growtopia," the game was originally called "Buildo." However, the name was changed because "Buildo" was already in use.
