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.”

Update 9.0 - Hotfix Patch

Hey Portians,

Since yesterday's update, we've been busy going through your feedback and bug/crash reports. Thanks to your feedback we’ve been able to put together a small patch that should fix most of the reported crashes.

The bugs related to the art assets will be fixed in upcoming patches. The reason for this being the update for art asset fixes will be a large file size to download.

Thanks again to those who took the time to make us aware of any bugs and crashes. Your actions have not only helped us fix any issues, but also helped your fellow Portians enjoy the game!

  • In this build, trees and brushes will not grow in the yard after the update.
  • Even after you expand the yard, the trees and brushes in yard will also be cut automatically.
  • Changed the placing orders of commissions. High level commission will display ahead of low-level commissions.
  • Fixed the bug that the demo save file can be read in the 9.0 build. So that players will not load it and crash the game.
  • Fixed a bug that caused the animals in the stable to be stuck by characters.
  • Fixed a bug that where choosing the number of food in the feeding UI, it would reset the scroll bar.
  • Fixed the crash when players restart the timed out Cross Five.
  • Fixed the crash at the end of the horse racing game.
  • Fixed some potential crashes.
  • Improved the performance when riding the horse.
  • Fixed the crash that caused by pathfinding.
  • Fixed a crash that occured when players were killed by traps.
PLEASE NOTE: Please ensure you go to bed before 12am on the 28th of every month. Failure to do so will cause the game to crash. We aim to have a fix for this next week.

Update 9.0 - Live Now!

Hey there Portians!

Update 9.0 is here, bringing with it new content, bug fixes and more!

The first thing you should notice with the new build is our work on optimization. All players should see an improvement in their frame rate and how the game runs on their system.

This is great because it means you'll get an even smoother experience when playing the new content we’ve added!

The reason you’ve been waiting slightly longer for this update is because we’ve been working on a lot of new content to bring to Portia:
  • A brand-new area to explore, including new buildings.
  • New story missions
  • New side missions
  • New monsters
  • New dungeons
  • New characters
  • New items/weapons
  • A Martial Arts Tournament
  • Updates to existing events such as Land Run and the Day of Memories Festival.
  • Even more activities!

The Portia Land Run

As many of you know, the Portia Land Run occurs every autumn in Portia following its addition in the previous update. Following its release, we felt that the Land Run had its limitations due to the player only being available to race against the clock, rather than other NPCs. But not anymore! We’ve added in racing against three other NPCs to make the event a lot more competitive. The original time attack race mode is still playable for Portians whose goal is purely to get the best time.

During the multi-character race, racers will be able to use items to increase their speed and add to stamina. May the best Portian win!

Day of Memories Tweak

If you’ve already tried the Day of Memories Festival, then you’ll remember that the event asked the player to go around the city of Portia collecting Ghost Badges. This time, we’ve added in a few more interesting gameplay mechanics.
  • New Ghost Badges will appear in the city every 30 seconds, they’ll be marked on the map for the player and NPCs to see!

  • We have added ‘ghosts’ to the game, they’ll appear randomly to scare folks, if you don’t dodge them, you’ll be stunned for a bit. Spooky!

  • Everyone will be armed with the Scare Soaker, a gun that can stun people for 3 seconds! You can use it, but so can NPCs. This should make things a little more interesting!

We know we’re a little late with this build and we’re sorry to have kept you waiting, but it’s here, and we hope you enjoy it!

There’s a lot more content we haven’t spoken about for you to discover in this update and we can’t wait to hear what you think of it!

Be sure to let us know what you think of the new content and tweaks here on the Steam forum. If you encounter a bug, please send us an email, or leave us a post on the ‘Report a Problem’ sub-forum. Happy gaming everyone!
