Our Thoughts...

So this game starts with you arriving in Portia on a boat to start a life in your Father’s old slightly rundown cabin.

You meet a multitude of locals who all have different roles to play in Portia. There are farms of various animals and crops that fill the landscape as far as the eye can see.

You must register to become a builder which then leads onto you being commissioned for a multitude of different jobs. In order to make money you must undertake these commissions.

You can also grow crops and keep animals as the game progresses. There are mines where you can dig up relics of a bygone era and discs. The church in Portia want to destroy the discs as they feel that they will bring along the destruction of Portia.

Why not make friends with all of the quirky and unusual townspeople who make up Portia, they will ask you to make things for them and that will help you friendships grow.

Hey who knows you may even find romance. You can go on dates with the eligible singletons that reside in Portia and see where that takes you.

My Time at Portia is a beautiful and well thought out game, there are many different things for you to fill your days with such as raising animals, building commissions, farming, mining and so much more.

Life in Portia at first seems idyllic but there is a suspicious undertone to this with the mention of what happened years ago and the downfall of the previous way of life and I personally can’t wait to find out more.

The only major downside that we have found to this game is that some of the load times between scenes are a little lengthy, but given the quality of the game we are willing to forgive this fault.

Obviously there is still a lot more of this world for us to explore and we hope that you will enjoy the adventure along with us.
