Gameplay and Optimizations
My Time at Portia’s plot is set in a post-apocalyptic world where humans rebuild the world to restore civilization. The game’s primary goal is to restore and expand the city of Portia while also achieving the goal of becoming the best builder in the world.
Developers have used all the elements of the PC version, and players can 100% port their progress to the mobile version once it’s out. However, the mobile version of My Time at Portia will feature a customized UI and UX.
Pa’s Workshop and Crafting
My Time at Portia allows players to build a 3D workshop that can be further used to craft items. This 3D workshop is named Pa’s workshop in-game, where players can bring the gathered material they acquired by exploring different corners of the map to craft stuff for themselves.
Apart from crafting items, players can participate in the town-related missions that feature helping others and expanding the town using their craftsmanship. The game provides an opportunity to players to build a variety of stuff, from a basic sewing machine to a high-tech flying seat, and even develop animal husbandry.
Interaction with NPCs
My Time at Portia’s in-game town Portia features around 50 interactable NPCs. Players can interact with them to develop relations of friendship and love that can help them later during various in-game tasks.
Players can ride or swing a hot air balloon with their favorite NPC to improve their relationship. Players can develop these relationships further into starting a family and embracing parenthood.
As mentioned earlier, the mobile version will feature a specially optimized custom UI and UX. Here’s a look at those customized features:
- The ‘Auto-save’ function will be available on the top of the original archiving mechanism.
- To simplify the resource gathering process, a new ‘Item Tracking System’ will be introduced.
