Developer Pathea’s popular role-playing and simulation hybrid My Time at Portia is available on mobile devices as of yesterday.
My Time at Portia originally launched for all major consoles and PC in October of 2019, rapidly climbing the charts on Steam to become one of the service’s most downloaded titles. The game has now sold over two million copies across every platform, proving it has continued to make quite a splash. But if you’re one of those who hasn’t played it, or if you’re an existing fan looking to take the game on the go, the newly-released mobile version may be exactly what you’re looking for.
Handled by Pathea Games, this mobile version of My Time at Portia boasts some surprising optimization to the original game to help make it more palatable for shorter bursts of play on the go. Just a few of the helpful changes include auto-wayfinding and task and item tracking. The new semi-transparent mobile interface is also features a retrievable quick bar and task bar to keep things from becoming cluttered on a smaller screen, which appears to make performing daily tasks significantly more efficient. In a time when many mobile games feel rushed and designed to frustrate, it appears Pathea Games has gone to great lengths to make this one a more pleasant experience for new and returning players.
My Time at Portia is currently on sale this week only for $5.49 on Android and $5.99 on iOS, but it will normally be $7.99. Additionally, downloading the game during this initial release window will also give you access to mobile exclusive “housewarming gifts”, so you’ll want to act fast to make the most of things. However, if having a pocket version of My Time at Portia isn’t something you’re particularly interested in having, the game is also available for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch and PC right now.
