So it's going global too, right? I really want to try this one out!

I saw previous game from Channel 4 also had a global release just few days after their softlaunching which is a bit weird to me.

Out in USA.

Initial imps after playing for about 20 min:

Very impressed so far. IAP is totally optional it seems, you can skip anything by watching a video (eg I just rushed an 8-min building timer by watching a quick video). If you're missing resources for a desired building, it even offers the option to watch video instead of gathering resources.

Gameplay is fun, though maybe a bit repetitive in earliest stages (gather water. Gather wood. Gather water. Etc). Seems to be well balanced (perhaps too easy? Higher levels will tell).

Quick tip: you can move any building by clicking and holding for a few seconds (similar to rearranging icons on iOS).

Only bug so far was a "missing items: you need more people" window (appears when you try to queue crafting without people free) that wouldn't close. I had to force quit game to resume play.

EDIT: looks like you can't rush the longer build times with a video. An hour timer offers to let me use coins to skip, but not a video. Sad. It would be nice if they let you reduce your wait time at least, maybe 50% reduction for a video.

EDIT 2: the aforementioned 1-hour building timer let me skip with video once it had ticked down to about 45 min remaining. So it's still pretty generous with skips, just not unlimited.

Also, the biggest pain regarding the premium currency EC is that crafting slots are limited until you unlock more with it. You will eventually earn enough through normal play, achievements, etc, but it would be nice if maybe I could watch a video to earn one EC.

I hope this is an actual builder and not another clicker

It's a builder, not clicker. Though I enjoy clickers it's nice to play something with a lot more depth - so far, this delivers.

Haven't caught any yet, so my guess is no.
