My Time at Portia Sequel Is in Development, Will Take Players to the Frontier Town of Sandrock



Pathea Games has announced that it’s developing a sequel to My Time at Portia. Titled My Time at Sandrock, the upcoming title will also be set in a post-apocalyptic world, and will task players with setting up shop as a builder in a frontier town and save it from economic ruin as well as other threats.

Pathea has set up a Kickstarter campaign for the sandbox simulation RPG, explaining that it’s a small studio that needs additional funding to add extra features including multiplayer. The studio also wants to use the funding to self-publish Sandrock (Portia was published by Team17).

PB = PB || {};
PB.gptStandAlone = PB.gptStandAlone || {};
PB.gptAutoRefresh = PB.gptAutoRefresh || {‘gptAds’:[], ‘gptStandAlone’:[]};
admiralCookie = readAdmiralCookie();

googletag.cmd.push(function() {
var standAloneSizeMapping = googletag.sizeMapping().addSize([0, 0], []).addSize([750, 0], [[300, 250]]).addSize([980, 0], [[300, 250]]).build(); PB.gptStandAlone[‘ros_300x250_p_slot4_1603735261’] = googletag.defineSlot(‘/4403/cr/playstationlifestyle/ros’, [[300, 250]], ‘ros_300x250_p_slot4_1603735261’)
.defineSizeMapping(standAloneSizeMapping) .addService(googletag.pubads())
.setTargeting(‘pos’, ‘P’).setTargeting(‘content_detail’, ‘0’).setTargeting(‘kw’, ‘in-article’).setTargeting(‘coppa’, ‘0’).setTargeting(‘site’, ‘playstationlifestyle’);
googletag.enableServices();
googletag.display(‘ros_300x250_p_slot4_1603735261’);

if (admiralCookie === null || admiralCookie[‘val’] === ‘false’) {
googletag.pubads().refresh([PB.gptStandAlone[‘ros_300x250_p_slot4_1603735261’]]);
}

});

PB = PB || {};
gptAds = PB.gptAds || {};
var opts = {“asBool”:false,”adUnit”:”/4403/cr/playstationlifestyle/ros”,”adDiv”:”pb_prebidjs_300x250_a”,”sizeStr”:”[[300, 250]]”,”mapping”:[{“viewport”:”[0, 0]”,”sizes”:”[[300, 250]]”},{“viewport”:”[750, 0]”,”sizes”:”[]”},{“viewport”:”[980, 0]”,”sizes”:”[]”}],”targeting”:{“pos”:”A”,”content_detail”:”0″,”kw”:”in-article-mobile”,”coppa”:”0″,”site”:”playstationlifestyle”},”resize”:false,”autoRefresh”:false};
PB.waitForAS = (opts.asBool) ? true : PB.waitForAS || false;
admiralCookie = readAdmiralCookie();

if (admiralCookie === null || admiralCookie[‘val’] === ‘false’) {
PB.evGPTBuilder.enqueueAd(opts);
}

“We feel like that if we handle all the publishing duties ourselves, we’ll be better positioned to service all the different platforms in a timely matter,” Pathea wrote. “Overall, we do have the funding to finish the game in a timely and fully realized manner. If the Kickstarter somehow fails, we’ll probably only have a basic version of multiplayer until the sales of the game picks up.”

Sandrock will bring new features including:

  • 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 release in 2022 for current and next-gen consoles. Check out a trailer below.
