What genre is My Time at Sandrock?

Let’s get crafting.

My Time at Sandrock is an upcoming indie game that is the sequel to My Time at Portia. The first game has been available since 2018 and is even free to play if you have Xbox Game Pass. You may be surprised to find out that My Time at Sandrock isn't the same type of game as Stardew Valley.

Is My Time at Sandrock a farming sim?

No, My Time at Sandrock isn't a farming-focused sim like Story of Seasons or Stardew Valley. My Time at Sandrock is set to have more farming elements than its predecessor, but both of the games are crafting sims first and foremost. Many players who enjoy farming sims tend to still like the elements found in My Time in Portia.

There are concepts like marriage, fulfilling commissions, and participating in festivals. These all hit the sweet spot for farming sim fans, allowing them to easily transition into the crafting system. You can still cook in these games, build up your house, and even do a bit of interior decorating.
