My Time at Portia's many parts don't always shine on their own, but together they make for a pleasant building adventure.

A glacial pace and abundance of busywork make My Time At Portia a tough recommendation.

An interesting attempt to make a 3D Harvest Moon, that combines some of the best elements of Minecraft, but it lacks any real identity or new ideas of its own.

The world of Portia is full of promise but the time investment it requires makes it tough to recommend as is. A significant cut in crafting times across the board could go a long way toward making things feel more rewarding.
