Dev Log 1 in March

Posted by on March 8, 2018

Hi guys, it’s been a while since we released the update in February. Although we had it planned to release two updates in February, which include the new content like Winter Solstice’s hotpot, relics collection and repair, and snowball fight. We have released the winter festival part one, and the part two about snowball fight, unfortunately, we haven’t finished it in time, so we decided to release it along with some other new content in the late March.
The original development plan of My Time at Portia is to set the full release alive in this year, and launch Xbox ONE, Nintendo Switch, and PlayStation 4 meanwhile. But we’ve been told that if we want to stick to the release plan, we’ll have to finish the console version, well, at least the first console version several months ahead. So, it means we have to re-schedule our roadmap right now and expand the monthly update content. Ever since we’ve decided to speed up the develop progress, we have expanded the team as well. For now, we have more than 40 developers in the team, which also means the higher efficiency on the development.
The good news is, several features that you guys want the most, like keep and raise animals, ride animals will all be added in game in the following updates. Meanwhile, more stories are coming in May and June since we’ve recruited several writers to help.

So, what’s new in March’s update?
We’re gonna have a very important public resource, the museum! In this version, you can hand over pieces of relics to the museum after you have it repaired and get some rewards. Besides, NPCs in Portia can also dig up relics fragments in the abandoned ruins. They can do the exhibition as well or they can do some exchange business with players.

Don’t have to be jealous of MacDonald’s farm anymore, because you can keep your own animals in your own farm too. And you can also get productive benefit from breeding them, like eggs, milk and furs.

More outfits for the characters will also be added in game. for example, the new outfit in this update looks very dashing.

What’s more, we’ll have more main stories and more side quests relating to the desert. A new dungeon will also be added in game.

Can’t wait to show you the March update!

    Will you also add some non-work clothing such as casual outfits or dresses that we could use on our characters whenever we go on dates or festivals? Thanks for working hard as always! :’D

      There will be more clothes, it’s for you to decide if they’re more casual or dressy really. 🙂

        outfits have increasingly higher ‘combat’ stats.
        there’s no outfits with social stats.
        YOU decided, all outfits are for combat/exploring, not us 🙂

    Hi there! Thank you SO MUCH for this game, I tried downloading it for my PC but my PC is too slow unfortunately ): It looks amazing though. Not to bug at all, but any general idea when you’re aiming for the console versions to be out (namely switch)? I am dying for the game and I can’t wait! Thanks!

      Sorry to hear that. We’re trying to optimize the game for lower-end PCs, so hopefully in the near future you’ll be able to run the game on your PC!

      As for Switch release, the date is yet to be determined, bear with us 🙂

    So, just to clarify, is riding animals planned for the March update or a future update? (If it’s the March update, be prepared because I have a whole slew of follow-up questions on that topic.) Additionally, will feces be an automatic byproduct of your farm animals, since right now collecting it in small batches spread around the land isn’t very conductive for fertilizer production. I assume it will be, but I just want to be sure.

      Keeping animals will be a part of March update, as for riding animals I guess that’ll show up in future updates.

      Yes, feces will be all over your farm for you to collect haha.

    I’m happy that some of the larger features are being added like raising animals and I’m excited you’ve been adding writers to your team to flesh out the npc characters. Do you plan to have full voice acting by full release? And will there be relationship cut-scenes for different levels of friendship/dating?

      Yes, there will be full voice acting for the full release. And we’re trying to make as much cut-scenes as we can!

        Yay! I love all the voice acting so far and the character summaries have made me even more excited to get to know the characters better. Knowing there will be full voice acting definitely adds replayabilty for me!

    Hi hi, I’m a Switch player and I love games like this. I’m a hardcore Animal Crossing and Stardew Valley fan. And this game has caught my attention. I would love to have it. Any news on an estimated time for switch release? At least will it be some time this year?

    Hi, Really excited for the livestock. I look forward to more farming updates. Like Sprinkles, Scarecrows, More and different type of crops, Bigger farming plots, Rare seeds , Different types of livestock, sheep and so on. Also you should try and add a farming skill tree, One for Livestock and one for crops. But so far the gaming is looking really good. It will be the next big thing. Appreciate your hard work.

    I precisely wanted to appreciate you once again. I do not know the things that I would have used without the actual thoughts provided by you relating to that area of interest. It absolutely was the hard concern in my position, nevertheless finding out a new specialized way you treated the issue forced me to jump with delight. Now i’m happy for the assistance and in addition pray you know what a great job you happen to be undertaking instructing most people by way of a blog. I am sure you have never got to know any of us.

    Hi, really love this game. You guys are doing a great job. Keep up the good work guys.

    I do have few things to suggest:
    1. Ack (Robot NPC) are helping around. Yes its good. But I don’t want him to collect some stone or random stuff. If we could assign them to collect a particular item (Feces for Fertilizer), that would be great.
    2. Romance in game are fun. But after few months, they become repetitive and dull. I would like to let Phyllis (In game waifu) go and marry someone else already. But I can’t find any divorce button, so I assume we can do polygamy in this game. ( Haven’t try this but still kinda curious)
    3. If we can have a kid from our marriage, and they can grow up, go to school and help us with chores, that would give whole new experience to the player.

    English isn’t my first language, so please excuse any mistakes.
    Cheers!!

    hi
    i’m Korean game user.

    I’m playing this game so much fun.

    There is one thing that I miss when playing the game.
    I do not understand all the missions or descriptions of the game because I am not good at English.

    Other Korean users may feel uncomfortable about this.

    If time and manpower are possible, I would like you to support Korean.

    I can not speak English well and there may be errors.

    Thank you for making a fun game.

      Thanks for playing our game, we’ll try to look into Korean translation before the full release of the game later this year, thank you for your patience.

    I really appreciate how much you’re working with user suggestions! I’m so excited for horses, I hope that there will be different colors/patterns. I also think it would be interesting if we had dogs with a herding mechanism (I have no idea how this would be done haha) maybe for sheep or cows? It could help gather them into a barn, I always thought the way animals in Stardew Valley just went by themselves was unrealistic. It would also be a good use for having a dog in general. Looking forward to future updates, thank you!

      There will not be multiplayer for this game, but we might consider adding multiplayer as a DLC later if the sales are good. 🙂

    Just also wanted to give the developers some love for such a fun game! I’ve been done with the main storyline for awhile, but I am enjoying (trying to make) making friends and doing the daily jobs on the board in the meantime. Really looking forward to the next update! 😀

    An awesome game, it really take me back to my days playing rune factory (I still play rune factory 1 to 3 but anyway.) I’ve loved every second of it, thanks for this awesome game.

    Also, wanted to ask if there is any solution to the house upgrade crash?
