My Time at Portia was a critical and commercial hit when it launched on PC in 2018 and then later on consoles in 2019. It was a beautifully compelling, Studio Ghibli-inspired life sim, featuring farming, crafting, exploration, combat and much more besides.
It was a charming, engaging game that allowed players to indulge in whatever activities took their fancy from the varied selection on offer, with characters also able to level up and improve their skills, RPG-style.
My Time at Sandrock – currently seeking funds on Kickstarter, already at more than a third of its funding goal after just four days – looks to be an excellent sequel to the original game that keeps the same spirit of freedom and variety as its predecessor, albeit – from the impression that the trailer and Kickstarter page give – in a much more Wild West-inspired environment. In addition to this, a special multiplayer mode will be included, to allow friends – or strangers – to play together.
With Portia neighbouring the town of Sandrock, Pathea Games are also promising that players will see at least a few familiar faces too.
Release is planned on Steam Early Access initially, in March 2021. You can wishlist the game here. Console versions are set to follow in Summer 2022.
