Very fun, very cozy, the bachelors and bachelorettes are cute and varied, and the building system is great! The grind of materials is a bit annoying, but I've spend my far share of dozens of hours playing this beauty.

My Time at Portia was a great game. It was pretty fun to play. Like I mentioned in one of my previous reviews, I enjoy playing indie games. It's just a lot of fun.

Мне жалко потраченные 50 часов в этой игре, потому что я не уверен, что у неё есть конец и что я чего-то в ней добился...

I originally played this game a few years ago on the Nintendo Switch. That was an ordeal with constant performance issues. Even still, I was basically addicted to it once I really got started. I got it on the Nintendo Switch specifically so I could play it during downtime at work. That’s how much I liked playing it. It has similarities to games like Stardew Valley. You move to town and start your life and build things from the ground up. You do farming stuff and make friends. If you have played this genre of game before, then it won’t be anything new. Having played My Time At Sandrock and then gone back to replay Portia, the life improvements in Sandrock are even more evident and the little ways that Portia can be annoying are also more evident. Things like having to have ingredients on my person to cook with them and not being able to see what other relic pieces I had became very noticeable in this game after playing Sandrock where those things aren’t an issue. Still, overall, I enjoyed this game a great deal both times I played it. I enjoy this genre of game in general.

An amazing 3D harvesting game. With occassional fighting. Lots of events (that you won't miss as easily as in some other harvesting games). Their newer game: My time at Sandrock is more pretty, but this one has a prettier nature. I have it for both Switch and PC.

I had more fun in this game than I thought. I figured this was a Stardew Valley clone at first, but it has it's own charm. There is a ton to do and explore; I still don't have every achievement. Many of the residents in Portia have personalities and some have their own quest lines. I didn't bother much with raising animals or crops, because the building kept me more entertained. Toward the end I was waiting around for things to build in my factory. (Also the factory is a godsend.)

I stopped almost as soon as I got the last main story line achievement. It took me so long.
