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.

While My Time At Portia does stretch a bit too far into the realm of realism, it also offers an accessible entry point into this style of gaming.
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.
My Time At Portia is a game full of varied and fun missions, endearing NPCs and a charming atmosphere that allows us to spend hours and hours in the city without getting bored.

It is safe to say that even after a dozens of hours of play, I only scratched the surface of what there is to do in My Time At Portia. Combine hunting, mining, building and romancing with a fascinating setting and an involved narrative, and I can see myself continuing to go back to play more. My Time at Portia is more than a worthy alternative to Stardew Valley and one of the first must have games of 2019. Now, if you'll excuse me, I have some more mining to do.
