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.”

Autumn Festival Update – Live Now! (changelist included)

Hey Portians!

The Autumn Festival update (‘Update 10’) is here!

First of all, we’d like to let you know that this update doesn’t contain any new story missions. Why? Well, the main story is reaching its climax and we want a little bit more time to add some polish to it.

This update focuses on the Autumn Festival, as well as new spouse, bed and house features, as well as various optimisations and bug fixes.

We’ve been receiving feedback from some players that they were experiencing a less than optimal frame rate when playing the game, even though they had the recommend graphics card. We’ve been gathering this feedback from the forums, reviews and on social media so that we can address this issue faster. We are pleased to share that we have improved frame rate performance by roughly 20% across the board! Whilst we’re pleased with the improvements, we are aware things might not be perfect yet, so if you still have a low frame rate, please let us know in the Report a Problem forum.

New content sneak peek - Autumn Festival update

Hey Portians,

Spoiler alert! We’re showing off some new content that’s coming in the Autumn Festival update.

Last week, we shared with you some information about the new holiday – the Autumn Festival. This week, we’ll be looking at the new interactions you’ll be able to engage in with NPCs and world items, as well as some new customization options for your home!

New spouse interactions and shared furniture!

When you first arrive in Portia, you’ll find a humble, single bed along with your level 1 house. You’ve probably noticed that while you upgrade your house, your single bed still stays the same size, not reflecting the wider improvements to your home. Even when you become wealthy in Portia, or got married, you still haven’t been able to upgrade your bed. On top of that, you weren’t able to view your Portian resting after a hard days work!

Well, things are changing in this update! First of all, we’re adding a queen size bed! After all, we felt a bit guilty keeping you in that small bed when you’ve been fighting, farming and adventuring all day. But wait, there’s more! You can even claim the side of the bed you want! (Which as we all know, is integral to the sleeping experience!)

The new bed is more than just a model though, we’ve added new animations to make sleeping more meaningful to the player. For example, if you have a male spouse, you’ll see yourself get into bed and snuggle up to your spouse’s arms.

When the morning comes and you wake up, you’ll find that you’re no longer automatically stood in front of your bed. Instead, you’ll see yourself snoozing with your spouse (or with plenty of bed space if you’re single). When you’re ready to wake up, you can simply press the get up button. Just remember, you won’t become Portia’s #1 builder by staying in bed all day, so you’ll automatically wake up after a set period of time.

To compliment the addition of the queen size bed, there’ll also be other furniture that both yourself and your spouse will be able to interact with. Examples include the double lounge chair, rocking chair, and the mini-carousel!

We’ve added these as we agreed with the feedback we’d seen from the community that you’d like to be able to interact with your spouse more, allowing you to act more like a couple, rather than your spouse being a helper around the house/workshop.

We hope the furniture that you can interact with will make the Portian experience more genuine for you. If this new type of furniture is well received, we’ll add more of this type of furniture in the future – so let us know what you think!

New decoration options!

To further empower our players to customize their home, this update will give you the ability to place food, toys and other small items on top of tables and draws. What will you have on display?

New wallpapers and flooring options!

Are you wanting to give your home an Autumn makeover? If your answer is yes, then we’ve got some good news for you! In the Autumn Festival update we’re adding two new tools – the floor rush and the roller brush. These new additions will allow you to change the colours of both the wallpaper and flooring/patterns as you desire!

It almost feels like you’re moving into a new home!

That wraps up today’s update! We hope you like what we’ve revealed, feel free to let us know what you think in the comments below, over on the Steam forums or via the My Time At Portia Twitter account!
