My Time At Portia - Preview

My Time At Portia is a free-roaming adventure that puts you in a post-apocalyptic world - but it's anything but bleak!  With beautiful surroundings and friendly people to meet, you have multiple paths to follow - builder / farmer / brawler / quester - people to meet and make friends with (some easier than others it seems, and the fact that giving animal poo as a gift can obviously turn some people off you!  Fortunately you can give them nicer gifts instead...), and a huge world to explore (which, apparently, contains its fair share of mysteries too).

If you liked Yonder: The Cloud Catcher Chronicles you should feel right at home here, but everything in My Time At Portia seems much more detailed - the people actually really talk to you, the graphics are certainly more detailed and less stylised, inter-character relationships have more depth, etc.  The game is backed up by some beautiful mood music.

It's currently in Early Access but already it's difficult to grasp just how massive this game is. There's so much to see and do here, and it feels like love and attention have been poured into every aspect of it.  Most definitely one to keep an eye on, or of course get it while it's still in Early Access - you might encounter the odd bug while it's being developed, but even in this developmental stage its enormously impressive.

(Needless to say, my kids love this game and it was difficult for me to get enough time to give it a proper test!!)
