Explore hauntingly beautiful ruins in search of food and supplies, outfit and maintain the “terrarium” in which you live, and do whatever it takes to protect and nurture the last surviving human in this care simulator-meets-roguelike title.”

The player takes control of a discarded maintenance robot who takes take of a young girl named Toriko. The robot discovers the dying girl within the scrapyard. Along with the decommissioned factoriAI, the robot works to bring her back to health inside of a terrarium.
