My Time at Portia PS4 Release – Why We’re Excited
If you hadn’t guessed already from our rather effusive opening, we’re really looking forward to My Time at Portia. For a number of reasons.
First and foremost, there’s the obvious similarities to superb titles such as Stardew Valley. Not just because both games revolve around farming, but because of the way in which both games allow you to exist in and become a part of the incredible world Pathea Games has created.
Whether that’s interacting with the inhabitants of Portia, participating in community events, exploring the Arcadian surroundings, battling colourful foes, enjoying any of the game’s numerous minigames, or simply exercising your creative muscles to carve out your own unique slice of paradise.
The accompanying synopsis over on the PlayStation website says it all, really.
The town of Portia is full of unique characters for you to get to know. All going about their daily lives, be it going to school, doing their jobs, working out, or just having fun. Make lasting friendships, enjoy romantic dates star gazing, or embark on the adventure of marriage!
Make your own mark on Portia and immerse yourself in this warm, welcoming town full of extraordinary experiences.
If that wasn’t enticing enough, My Time at Portia includes the inimitable Studio Ghibli on its list of inspirations. Meaning it not only provides a refreshing break from all the AAA looter shooters and 300+ hour RPGs, it looks and sounds charming, too.
