OverviewOverview

My Time at Sandrock is a life-simulating role-play game where you restore a run down town. It's set in the same wholesome yet post-apocalyptic world as My Time at Portia. You start by working as a builder, but soon discover a world of things to do and people to help.

It's up to you to gather resources, build machines, workshops and production machine to restore the town's former glory. As you do this, you explore a huge desert world with ruins to find, ancient relics from the Old World, dangerous dungeons and their denizens.

Your workshop is an intricate set of machines that produce parts of the structures needed for the town. Each is assembled piece by piece at first. You can also craft items needed by over 30 characters, with their own story.

As you progress you learn to fight, level up your skills and hone a character that excels at either crafting, combat or social skills depending on your play style. Eventually you will have the town built and can take your profits and convert the empty prairie lands around you into farmable land for a more leisurely lifestyle, then sell your crops, or transform them into delicious dishes.
