No, it's not compatible with Windows 7 unfortunately. But there's a fix on YouTube, just search (I can't post the link here)
Yes it is, technically, with a caveat.

Practically the devs added an absolutely artificial block (if sees 7, make up a fake error), the game runs on 8.1 but 7. The fix the above person mentioned is kind of shady in my opinion and only for Steam and includes a foreign EXE, I strongly discourage for compatibility/security reasons. Many games, like new "Myst" or "Serious Sam 4" run fine on 7, this move is truly unfriendly, it must be undone.

How can one undo the unjust on a GOG copy in a HEX editior to make it run? Not Steam.

Remember: you are doing this on your own risk!

Instructions for build 49215 are in the post from liara42 (see below)

GOG build: 46815
FIle: Little Nightmares II.exe
CRC (before modification): 150BF553h
Offset: 051FBB1h
Replace: 75h with EBh
CRC (after modification): 3CD3BB97h

This will bypass that artificial version check and will allow to run the game on any Windows version since (and including) Vista.

Enjoy.

--- Update ---
Fixed erroneous installation package build number.

The above has a mistake. The way is for 46815, not 49215: The CRC32 and offset aren't OK. The right way:

Thank you! Fixed.
I really managed to somehow misplace build numbers.
