My Time At Portia - Review @ Wccftech

by Hiddenx, 18:24

Wccftech checked out My Time At Portia:

My Time at Portia Review – Don’t Make Me Leave

The setting of My Time at Portia really surprised me. While I was expecting another delightfully colourful and relaxing game like Stardew Valley, I wasn’t expecting to see the ruins of skyscrapers looming over the horizon. My Time at Portia is a lovely game that feels capable of competing even with the titans of the genre.

If I had to try and find a comparison for My Time at Portia, I would probably say that it was the unlikely lovechild of Stardew Valley and Horizon: Zero Dawn. There was an apocalypse in this world, but what remains is a pleasant and peaceful existence in the shadows of the ruins. I’ve got to say it wasn’t a setting that I thought would work when so much media is dedicated to showing us how bad the world would look after we’ve gone, but My Time at Portia’s simple lifestyle simulation and hopeful message almost immediately won me over.
My Time at Portia is a beautiful, relaxing experience. With the charming art style and plenty of activities to go through, players will easily lose themselves in the game's pleasant setting for hours and hours.


  • Looks amazing
  • Feels delightfully charming
  • Something for everyone
  • So much to do and see


  • Bugs of every shape and size occasionally burrow up
  • Some farming products are almost completely pointless
  • Timed assignments can add stress to this most unstressful of games

Score: 8/10

My Time At Portia - Content Update

by Silver, 08:51

My Time At Portia has received a fairly substantial content update that has added a musuem, animals, desert area and more.

LIVESTOCK UPDATE OUT NOW! Animals, museum, desert area and more!

Hey Portians!

The end of the month is here and that means only one thing… New content for My Time At Portia!
The developers at Pathea have been working extra hard to get this content to you in time so that you all have something extra to play over the Easter break and have even included some extra features that weren’t even planned for this update!

Check out some of the biggest additions here or scroll down for the full change list!


From today onwards you’ll be able to keep and look after your own animals, including sheep, chicken, ducks and cows! Look after them well and they’ll reward you with milk and eggs, and you’ll even be able to breed them! What’s more, we’ve also added horse riding to the game! Head to MacDonald’s farm and you’ll be able to enjoy a horse ride alone or with that special someone if you’ve been lucky enough to find a romantic partner.


Portia’s brand-new museum is nearly open for business! Starting with this update, there’s a new story mission to help build the museum. Once you’ve done that, you can then start adding your donations!

Any relics you’ve discovered can be donated here, to be displayed for future Portian generations to enjoy, and you’ll even get paid for your trouble!

The Portia Museum also believes in credit where it’s due, so if you’re the first resident to donate an item then your name will be listed as the donator when checking the relics at the Museum.

What wonders will you add to the exhibitions? Make sure to share your screenshots with us on Steam and on social media so we can see what you’ve found!


Head out to Portia’s new desert area and you’ll find lots of new gameplay to discover. There’s a brand new dungeon to explore, with enemies to fight and relics to be found, as well as several new crafting quests!


We’ve made a few improvements to the relationship system in this update, including the option to kiss or hug your significant other anywhere in Portia.

We’ve also added a new mini-game based around star gazing. Look to the skies at night and you and your partner can draw constellations among the stars and enjoy the romantic moment.


As well as the above features, the new update includes a host of other additions and improvements…


  • Desert story mission
  • Windbreak mission
  • Museum building mission
  • Four kinds of animals which can be raised on your farm
