Independent developers, Pathea Games, has today launched a Kickstarter campaign for their upcoming title, My Time at Sandrock, a sequel to the award-winning, best-selling, life-sim RPG: My Time at Portia. Reaping the success of its predecessor, My Time at Sandrock’s developers are looking to raise $100,000, which would allow the team to develop and self-publish their rustic sequel. Check out the trailer below:
The game takes place in a wholesome post-apocalyptic world; a world where humans have successfully restarted civilization after, long ago, nearly destroying themselves through greed, unbridled technology, and warfare in a period they refer to as the “The Age of Darkness.” Current citizens of this world now band together and reject the Old World ideologies as they work to rebuild, but remaking an entire civilization isn’t easy…
Players take on the role of a fledgeling builder being sent to a wild and rugged townscape on the brink of collapse. It’s up to you and your trusty toolset to gather resources, build machines, fix up your workshop into a well-oiled production machine, and save the town from the jaws of economic ruin, as well as a few other unexpected complications!
Customize and build your workshop with an intricate set of machines that all work together to produce parts of huge structures for the town that you assemble piece by piece, or head to your worktable to craft hundreds of unique items that can help out individual townspeople or be placed throughout your own workshop: watch Sandrock transform before your eyes as every contribution you make to the town appears permanently in the world!
The people of Sandrock are hardy and tenacious, and one can hardly survive in such arduous climate without developing a sense of humour. Befriend the local sheriff to hear about his tall tales, help out the chatty ranch family and they’ll help you in turn, spend some time with a local artist and hear about her hopes and aspirations. Meeting and helping these characters leads to not only making new friends, but also people to support you in building your workshop! And who knows, even romance might be in the air.
Features of the game include:
- New Combat – a revamped combat system that allows the player to quickly shift between melee combat and 3rd person shooting mechanics.
- Great Music – an original soundtrack with dynamic in-game music that reflects where the player is and what they’re doing
- More Elaborate Story and Deeper Characters- a vastly enriched storyline, hundreds of side-quests boasting over 30 completely new characters, each getting more attention than before with their own story to discover, as well as the return of a few familiar faces for fans of the series.
- Build with Friends! Co-op multiplayer – Perhaps the most exciting addition to the game is a new multiplayer function that will finally allow players to visit a unique multiplayer map where they can build a workshop together and experience an additional storyline that unfolds there…
My Time at Sandrock will be arriving for the PC through various stores (Steam, WeGame, Epic Game Store, GOG) in 2021. Current gen and next-gen console version is also in the works, and would see a 2022 release.
