I just tried the demo. It feels a lot like Animal Crossing with a dash of Dark Cloud... but unfortunately it runs very poorly on my computer. All the same I look forward to Littlewood's release. Admittedly it would had been a nice surprise if this was a full action-adventure (as implied from dialogue) with this massive post-game system but as a pure construction/crafting adventure this is very pleasant with a good excuse for why you are rebuilding a town yourself.
Quick edit: Littlewood running poorly is not something the game itself may be at fault for. My computer is old and doesn't handling some things well.
