Early Access Game

Get instant access and start playing; get involved with this game as it develops.

Note: This Early Access game is not complete and may or may not change further. If you are not excited to play this game in its current state, then you should wait to see if the game progresses further in development. Learn more

What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“With a game of the scope of My Time at Portia, we need to ensure we get all the different mechanics balanced correctly, creating an amazing new experience for players. That’s why it’s so important for us to get player feedback whilst on this journey of Early Access, helping us create something truly special.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“We anticipate that the game will go through approximately 9 months of Early Access. This will allow us time to incorporate feedback from the player base and evolve our vision.”

How is the full version planned to differ from the Early Access version?

“The full version of the game will feature all the updates and features amassed throughout Early Access. By the time we launch out of Early Access all sandbox elements will be fully implemented, with all story and endgame content added.
To be added:
• New Areas
• New Commissions and Side Quests
• New Story Content
• More Mini-games
• Keep, Raise and Ride Animals”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“My Time at Portia is in a polished state where you can instantly play up to 25 hours of content, with lots to craft, a huge amount of story, commissions to fulfill, and areas to explore. Plus, lots of your fellow Portians have been added for you to meet, greet and even romance. The game is jam-packed full on content for you to lose yourself in sandbox simulation, but we will keep adding more!”

Will the game be priced differently during and after Early Access?

“We are planning on increasing the price when we leave Early Access. Those that join us early will have a lower cost to pay, and the ability to craft what the game becomes!”

How are you planning on involving the Community in your development process?

“Together with Team17, our publisher, we’ll be in the forums reading all the feedback from the My Time at Portia community. We’ll be updating the game regularly with new features, balances and tweaks based upon what we’re hearing from you.”

Introducing Camera Mode - Coming soon to My Time At Portia!

Hey Portians,

Today we’re excited to reveal a new feature that’s coming in April’s content update - Camera Mode! This new feature will allow you to take pictures with a camera and store them in an album, giving you the opportunity to document your adventures in Portia! Camera Mode will allow you to not only take a photo of a scene or NPCs, you can also take selfies and pose with the various residents of Portia!

Currently in My Time At Portia, if you see something you’d like to take a picture of, you’re limited to using external software or Steam’s F12 button. We felt this was too restrictive on our players as it doesn’t allow you to hide your character, change the camera angle or stop time to get the perfect shot. Our aim with the new Camera Mode is to make all of this right and support our picture taking enthusiasts in Portia! When using Camera Mode, your character and UI will disappear, and time will stop. We feel that this will take off a lot of pressure off the player when it comes to taking a good photo, far more convenient in our opinion!

To help introduce this new feature, we’ll also be adding some camera related stories/missions in the April update. These will be designed around snapping pictures of several NPCs, some specific items, as well as some of Portia’s scenery.

We’ve made it as easy as possible to take pictures with your fellow Portians, just look out for the prompt in a new interact bubble. Oh, and by the way, the closer you are with the NPC in question, the more poses you’ll be able to do!

What kind of poses do you think you’ll be able to do when Camera Mode launches? Tell us your guesses in the comments section!

That's all for now, we look forward to seeing what you make of Camera Mode when it launches later this month.

About This Game

Start a new life in the enchanting town of Portia! Restore your Pa's neglected workshop to its former glory, grow crops, raise animals, befriend the towns quirky inhabitants and uncover the mysteries this charming post-apocalyptic land has forgotten!

Armed with your Pa's workshop handbook and old workbench, you must gather, mine and craft your way to being crowned the number one workshop in the whole of Portia. Be prepared though…it won't be easy!

Inspired by the magic of Studio Ghibli, My Time at Portia whisks you away to a world of wonder that you won't forget. How will you spend your time at Portia?

The town of Portia is full of unique characters for you to get to know. They will go to school, do their jobs, workout, and have fun. They also have unique stories for the player to experience. The player will be able to get into relationships with other townsfolk; whether they are looking for friendships, romances or even marriage.

Each player is free to make their own mark on Portia and immerse themselves in a warm, welcoming little town full of experiences.

Key Features:

BUILD YOUR WORKSHOP: Build your Pa's derelict workshop into the best in Portia! Gather resources and craft your way into the hearts of the local community, as you work through daily commissions and villager requests.

RUN YOUR OWN FARM: Grow and nurture your own crops, as you convert the empty woodland surrounding your home into a quaint little farm! My Time at Portia offers an innovative approach to farming, allowing you to take advantage of planter boxes and semi-automatic irrigation systems.

GET CREATIVE: Make your house a home! Apply your personal touch with an exciting range of craftable furniture, decorations and room upgrades!

JOIN THE COMMUNITY: Become a part of Portia's extraordinary community! Filled with a vibrant cast of unforgettable faces all with exciting stories to share, energetic personalities and individual behaviors. Make sure you take the time to get to know them all - who knows, maybe romance could be in the air?

EXPLORE AND BATTLE: Delve deep into the ancient ruins and dungeons of Portia. Mine for resources and uncover what lurks beneath the seemingly peaceful land. It’s dangerous to go unprepared… Make sure you're equipped to face fearsome monsters and deadly bosses that stand between you and the secrets of Portia.

SKILL UP: Level up your character with a variety of skills to aid you in your adventures, in true RPG fashion!

AND THEN THE REST: Portia is an enriching and vivid experience, jam-packed with activities for your enjoyment! How will you spend your time? Fancy trying your hand at cooking? You could challenge your new friends to Rock-Paper-Scissors, or for the more daring how about a little bit of sparring? Take your pick! There's also tonnes of mini-games, animal riding, and festivals to enjoy. Or maybe you just want to kick-back and spend the afternoon fishing? Its up to you how you spend your time at Portia!
