Premature Evaluation: My Time at Portia

Premature Evaluation is the weekly column in which we explore the (well-tended agricultural) wilds of early access. This week, Fraser’s taking a break in My Time at Portia, a crafting sim with shades of Harvest Moon and Stardew Valley. Tirelessly exploring early access games takes its toll, so this week I’m off somewhere relaxing: a post-apocalyptic town. Portia is more Ghibli than Fallout, thankfully. It’s…

Crafty farming life sim RPG My Time At Portia enters early access

Post-apocalyptic life usually seems stressful but it actually looks quite cheery in My Time At Portia, a new Stardew Valley-ish craft-o-explore-a-life sim RPG which hit early access today. Sure, the skyline is dotted with overgrown skyscrapers and the dungeons beneath the town house biomechanical monsters, but aside from that it looks pleasant enough as we farm, craft, make friends, and all that. The full version…

My Time at Portia looks like a relaxing Stardew Valley sort of game

My Time At Portia [official site] is a post-apocalyptic RPG. But if this is what the world looks like after an apocalypse then (WARNING: HOT TAKE INCOMING) maybe Donald Trump is the best thing that could've happened to us. It's absolutely gorgeous, full of colour and wacky characters, like bears in blue and gold dressing gowns. The premise is that you arrive in Portia and…

The Lighthouse Customer: Planet Explorers

Each Monday, Chris Livingston visits an early access game and reports back with stories about whatever he finds inside. This week, exploring a planet in the appropriately named Planet Explorers. The title of the game is direct, to be sure. In Planet Explorers, a planet exploration game by Pathea Games, there is a planet, and you explore it. If that doesn't sound like enough, there's…

The Alpha Frontier: Planet Explorers 0.62 Trailer

I watched Jurassic Park the other week (spoilers: it's still awesome), and the mixture of large lizards and modern tech seems like the appropriate primer for Planet Explorer's mix and match world. The single and multiplayer RPG's strength is how it ties user-generated content into the fantasy setting. You can build loads of impressive things in the editor, and tool around the world. But these…

Planet Explorers? Planet ExSPORErs More Like

Jim and Adam have written words about Planet Explorers, a sort of MMO single and multiplayer voxel-based construction game that's free to download right now. The reason I am returning to the game is the developer of this oddball mix of Spore, WoW, and Minecraft has just released a video showing their commitment to user-created content. It's a sci-fi fantasy world with giant, stalking deathbeasts,…

Pioneering: Planet Explorers Alpha Download

Planet Explorers, the voxel-based construction, exploration and critter-shooting game, has now reached version 0.41. It can be downloaded from Gamefront or using your torrent software of choice but it's a fairly hefty download - 1.35 gig - so I haven't had a chance to try it yet because my internet connection appears to have frozen as the winter chill sets in. The game is of…

Voxel Populi: Planet Explorers

Where are all the blocks? Planet Explorers, available in alpha right now, is a terraforming, building, crafting sort of a thing, but when the player starts digging the earth isn't shifted in discrete cubes. Unnatural and off-putting as that is, it does at least give the game a distinctive appearance, as do the giant creatures trundling about. Construction is of the fort and tower variety,…
