A little like the old The Settlers games, you slowly create a thriving eco-system out of nothing. As you progress you build the town, gain rewards and take on large assignments that get you venturing out beyond the city and sometimes into dungeons.
The town of Portia is full of unique characters for you to get to know. They will go to school, do their jobs, workout, and have fun. They also have unique stories for the player to experience. The player will be able to get into relationships with other townsfolk; whether they are looking for friendships, romances or even marriage. You are free to make their own mark on Portia and immerse themselves in a warm, welcoming town full of experiences.
7+ year-olds usually have the required skill to enjoy this game. The simple exploration and gentle gameplay work for younger players. You do need to have some tenacity in planning and building to progress, but there's little time pressure on this. Design and layout skills also mean players can enjoy the character maker and home customisation aspects. The combat elements may require some adult input for the very young.

My Time At Portia: Housewarming Gift Set
My Time at Portia can be played in a relaxed, low pressure way as the game's core missions are not time sensitive and cannot be failed. There is no way to manually save your game, when you sleep in your bed, time advanced and the game is saved. There are some time-sensitive quests, competitions, and events that you can can fail to complete, and there are some fighting and dungeon exploration parts that add more reaction time and rapid button pushing. While the game does not have difficulty modes, choosing how much of the content you would like to engage with determines challenge level, the more side quests, dungeons, quests, and competitions you involve yourself in, the more difficult the game becomes,
Controller vibration is on a slider with 10 settings. There is no way to adjust the text size.
