The title’s Steam page goes into some detail on the premise. It all starts off with the player inheriting an old island zoo from their deceased father, clearly a homage to one of the game’s main inspirations—Stardew Valley. The zoo has fallen on hard times and has been left in ruin. It’s now up to the player to put in the hard work to restore the zoo to its former glory.
