OverviewOverview

This game is set after civilization has been destroyed, and humans are emerging from underground to rebuilding society. By gathering resources, crafting and building you slowly gain the tools to collect food, store grain, chop trees and build dwellings. You do this as day turns to night and the seasons change, a little like Zelda Breath of the Wild.

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.

Age RatingsAge Ratings

Rated PEGI 7 because it features non-realistic violence in a child-friendly setting or context, mild violence that lacks any apparent harm or injury to human-like characters and violence that lacks any apparent harm or injury to fantasy or mythical beings and creatures. The game contains non-realistic violence in a child-friendly setting and unrealistic violence against fantasy characters. For example, players can attack colourful llamas to get crafting material. These llamas vanish in a puff of smoke when defeated. The game also contains minor violence against human-like characters. Players can ‘spar’ with townspeople meaning they can deal out punches, none of the characters will show injuries or suffering, however.

This game has been rated ESRB EVERYONE 10+.
