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

Content Rating

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.

Skill Rating

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 usually costs £24.99 to £26.99.

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.
