Two years ago, when what now seems like a fancy sandbox RPG game came out, My Time at Portia was not expected to sell over a million copies. Now, the sequel to My Time at Portia, My Time at Sandrock, has reached 100k wishlists in a mere two months.
According to the developer, Pathea Games, they will unlock more in-game features once the game has been wish-listed on Steam by certain amounts of people. For the 100k wishlist goal, the dev team will add a facial make-up function to Sandrock beyond what Portia offered, and players can do their eye shadow, lipstick, and other cosmetic things to better express their style. Other goals include deeper furniture customization, a play-date function between players in multiplayer mode, and the highly-requested feature of the player’s children growing up to at least school age.
My Time at Sandrock inherits My Time at Portia’s essence and takes place in perhaps the only wholesome post-apocalyptic world in the gaming industry right now; a world where humans have successfully restarted civilization after nearly destroying themselves through greed, unbridled technology, and warfare in a long-ago period they refer to as the “The Age of Darkness.” The 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 will take up an offer to become a Builder in Sandrock, another city-state located within the Alliance of Free Cities, set in the arid Eufaula Desert not far from Portia. 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.
My Time at Sandrock will be available for PC via Steam Early Access first in Spring 2021, then will be heading to WeGame, Epic Games, GOG, and other platforms in 2022. It will later arrive on Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and next-gen consoles.
