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.

Below is the changelist for the Autumn Festival update. Feel free to check what else is new here or go explore and discover the new content in-game for yourself!

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!

Hey Portians,

Today we’re excited to share with you a new trailer that shows off the wide range of crafting that you can engage in during your time in Portia!

Whether you’re a long-term resident of Portia, or someone who’s recently joined us, we hope you enjoy our spotlight on all things crafting!

Whilst we’re on the topic of crafting marvellous creations, we love seeing what you create!

If you’re particularly proud of any of your creations, from your Workshop, to your farm and garden, we’d love to see it - Simply pop us a tweet to the official My Time At Portia Twitter! (Just get in there before Higgins does!)

We hope you all have a great week, we’ll be in touch again soon!

Hello Portians,

We’ve been in early access for almost a year now, adding new story and side quests along the way to bring you hours of gameplay! We’ll be adding even more content closer to the final release!

Our next update is almost ready, and we cannot wait to share it with you! This update will add a brand-new holiday to the game – Autumn Festival.

Autumn Festival
This new calendar event takes place on the 20th day of Autumn every year. You’ll receive a letter on the 15th day to remind you of when the festival will start, and let you know that there is a vegetable growing competition.

Portia Cook-Off
A cook-off will be held after the Autumn Festival. On the morning of the cook-off, you and the NPCs will need to provide food to the activity organisers. You’ll be rewarded for doing this, and when the activity begins you can get involved with the cooking!

So, does this mean you will have to remember lots of recipes? The answer is yes, you will need to know a lot of recipes to win the cook-off. But don’t worry, because in this update we’ll be adding a new feature to help you! You’ll be able to ask Django for recipe information… Better start building that friendship with him now!

This update will also focus on bug fixes and optimisation, to better improve your My Time At Portia experience.

Stay tuned for more news on this update, coming soon!

Hey Portians,

Today we’ve put out a small patch to address a few more bugs that have been found in My Time At Portia.

There are, however, a couple of bugs that will require further attention before we’re able to remove them.

There is currently an issue in-game that is caused by the new look of the workshop. Currently, the solution will lead to a HUGE patch so the team are working on a fix that should hopefully avoid this outcome.

For those of you who aren’t aware of this issue you'll find that some of the furniture in one area is missing. You may also discover a cooking set has just randomly appeared on the second floor (and doesn't work!)

If you’ve already done an appearance change but you preferred it how it was before, you'll have to change the layout back by putting your furniture in your inventory and then placing it back where you like.

Thank you for your understanding with all this, we really appreciate it.


Here's the changelist:
  • Fixed a bug related to the South Block cost being incorrect.
  • Fixed the bug with players not getting any skill points after their character levels up. Now the skill tree has been reset.
  • Fixed a crash issue in the snowball fight mini game.
  • Fixed the crash issue that occurred when loading a save during the Martial Arts Tournament.
  • Fixed the bug that caused the cupboard to not be on sale in the store.
