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.”

My Time at Portia – Demo Update



We have just updated the My Time At Portia demo! The demo is now based on Alpha version 8.0 and we have fixed some small issues and optimised assets. The missions and story content in this demo have not changed.

The final mission in the demo (building the bridge to Amber Island) remains the same. However, the demo will end once you have reached one month game time in My Time At Portia, and a thank you note will pop up in the middle of the screen.

Please note: the assembly station and worktable cannot be upgraded in the demo. Demo save files are not transferrable to the full version of the game, and saves from previous versions of the demo will not carry over to the latest version.

So, if you want to see what My Time At Portia is all about – download the free demo today!

Starlight Island Hotfix 2 (including changelist)

Hey Portians!

After yesterday's update, we found a few more issues which we will be fixed with this patch.

Please see the changelist below:
  • Fixed the bug causing the camera sensitivity inside and outside to be different.
  • Fixed the crash when detecting relics with the level 3 relics scanner.
  • Fixed the model for Phyllis in the cutscene.

    You may notice that this patch is quite large for the small list of changes we have made. That's because we have changed the way that game assets are managed by using AssetBundle. This means that once there are any changes made to game assets (even tiny ones), the system will pack up the whole AssetBundle folder.

    We know this could be annoying, so we are working on a solution now and hope to fix this issue very soon!

    Please continue to post any issues or bugs you encounter in the Report a Problem forum.

    Thanks!
