The Epic Games Store’s latest freebie is Pantea Games’ My Time at Portia. This is an open-world crafting/building/mining sim that might be of interest to fans of Studio Ghibli, as it utilizes a graphical style that’s clearly inspired by the legendary Japanese studio’s animated features. The game also includes some farming elements.
“Start a new life in the enchanting town of Portia!,” the game’s description reads. “Restore your Pa’s neglected workshop to its former glory by fulfilling commissions, growing crops, raising animals, and befriending the quirky inhabitants of this charming post-apocalyptic land!”
“Armed with your Pa’s old handbook and workbench, you must gather, mine and craft your way to being crowned the number one workshop in Portia. Help the locals rebuild the town and uncover the secrets locked deep away beneath it. Be prepared though…it won’t be easy!”
The Steam version of My Time at Portia (which is on sale for $10.19) appears to have three DLC packages that aren’t available with the Epic Games Store version. These are merely cosmetic additions that have no effect on the gameplay, however (“Player Attire Package,” “NPC Attire Package,” “Swimwear”).
