I so hope this is good but I'm disheartened that I can't find anything about it elsewhere. Looks stunning visually, a little like the upcoming Shelter 2.

Edit: Glitchy mess unfortunately, can't walk too far without falling through the floor. Such a shame, looks beautiful.

Seconding that, unfortunately. Got it because I thought my kid might like the visuals (and I found them quite interesting too).
But it is completely unusable. Did not get the "fall through floor" glitch, but cannot interact with anything and the movement controls barely work.
Time to ask for a refund, which is a shame really.

I'll start with the good; the game world is visually stunning, with a similar low-poly visual flair as Shelter and Secrets of Rętikon.

And that's pretty much it - the rest of the game seems like a quick port to iOS as it's obviously not designed with touch controls in mind (see picture). The control areas are incredibly small (it should be noted I'm on an iPhone - they might be better scale-wise on an iPad), making any sort of precise movement difficult - move your finger too much, and suddenly you're running. I did also run into the aforementioned falling off the game world problem - in addition to very poor draw distances. Besides the technical problems the games biggest flaw is just how dead the entire game world feels - the only interactive object I could find in the game is the one in the picture, which I obviously couldn't interact with.

I do however think this good become something interesting if it was developed further, but judging from the games catalogue of the developer that isn't likely to happen.
