My Time at Sandrock, sequel to My Time at Portia, announced for Switch
Pathea Games today announced My Time at Sandrock, a sequel to its life-sim RPG My Time at Portia. The game is planned for Switch and other platforms.
To make My Time at Sandrock a reality, Pathea Games is seeking assistance through Kickstarter. The studio hopes to raise $100,000, which would allow the team to develop and self-publish the project.
Here’s a bunch of information about My Time at Sandrock:
Just like My Time at Portia, the game takes place in perhaps the only wholesome post-apocalyptic world in the gaming industry right now; a world where humans have successfully restarted civilization after, long ago, nearly destroying themselves through greed, unbridled technology, and warfare in a period they refer to as the “The Age of Darkness.” Current citizens of this world now band together and reject the Old World ideologies as they work to rebuild, but remaking an entire civilization isn’t easy…
First day on the job…
Taking a job offer in the frontier town of Sandrock, you’ll assume the role of a fledgling builder being sent to a wild and rugged townscape on the brink of collapse. It’s up to you and your trusty toolset to gather resources, build machines, fix up your workshop into a well-oiled production machine, and save the town from the jaws of economic ruin, as well as a few other unexpected complications…
No job too big, no task too small!
Customize and build your workshop with an intricate set of machines that all work together to produce parts of huge structures for the town that you assemble piece by piece; or head to your worktable to craft hundreds of unique items that can help out individual townspeople or be placed throughout your own workshop: watch Sandrock transform before your eyes as every contribution you make to the town appears permanently in the world!
There and back again
Explore the vast deserts surrounding Sandrock: dive into ruins to find ancient relics from the Old World, face the dangers of dungeons and their denizens, then return to your homestead with encumbering bags of treasure in tow. Take your profits and convert the empty prairie lands around you into farmable land for a more leisurely lifestyle, then sell your crops, or transform them into delicious dishes to share with all your new friends in town!
It takes a wild bunch…
The people of Sandrock are hardy and tenacious, and one can hardly survive in such an arduous climate without developing a sense of humor. Befriend the local sheriff to hear about his tall tales, help out the chatty ranch family and they’ll help you in turn, spend some time with a local artist and hear about her hopes and aspirations. Meeting and helping these characters leads to not only making new friends, but also people to support you in building your workshop! And who knows, even romance might be in the air…
– 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 is initially planned as a Steam Early Access title for March 2021. The full game is targeted for release in Spring 2022, with a Switch launch in Summer 2022.
