* Meet everyone. This way you can get rid of those pesky ? marks on the
and get a little glimpse into what
their character is like and what benefits you
get from befriending them.
* Focus on a few people at a time, particluarly the ones that you are
in romancing. Chat to them every
day and gift them something simple if need be,
an extra point every day goes a
long way. The My Time at Portia wiki has a lot
of tips on which NPC likes what
* Don’t forget your friends! A developer has confirmed that your social
decay if you do no interact with
the person after a time limit.
* Commissions are a nice little boost if you don’t mind giving up some
reputation. Portia’s residents can
put in commissions, usually easier ones, which
reward the player with social
points to their corresponding owner.
* Don’t get caught cheating! There’s a jealousy system in place when you
multiple characters. If you are out
on a date with one and bump into another
romanced character you will send
both of them into a jealousy state, losing
social points and not being able to
interact with them (chat, gift, etc).
You will have to gain their trust
again by gifting or completing tasks or
waiting 7 days.

* So far the most known secret, is the secret room. I do not have pictures of
but have found and been in the room
* Reports say that this room is in AR #1 and you must clear out the area
elevator and you’ll find a tunnel.
This tunnel should have the ‘E’ button prompt
and say something like
“Unknown” or “Secret” location. You venture in and I
there to be level one Gooeys and
one chest that gave me llama fluff. Uneventful.
* There are folks who have spent weeks in game clearing out the mine and
found it, while others have
stumbled on it by accident. We don’t know if it
always shows up or is a random
spawn, but there you go.
* Also in the AR #1 is a large piece of architecture with a hit box (this
haven’t found). In order to
properly mine it, you need to upgrade your pick axe
to bronze or higher. From what I
heard, this is also uneventful when you break
Dodgy Guide to Dodging:

So why did I make this you may ask. The answer is the developers decided,
many others, to include a dodge mechanic in their game. However, they never
explain what dodge can do in the game and made it only work against some
and not others, misleading many players as to when it is extremely
when it is significantly less useful.
-=What is the dodge in My Time at Portia?=-
A dodge basically makes you move slightly faster in the direction you were
when you pressed dodge. It consumes 50 endurance without the talent, can be
with only 1 endurance remaining with no penalty, and it prevents your
from flinching when hit while they are dodging. Dodge will also grant the
about a half second’s worth of invulnerability which only applies to some
making it required for beating the rat king and less useful in many other
-=What does dodging work on?=-
Dodging will make the character invulnerable to most melee attacks.
Drill AI’s drill and spinning attacks, and sparring opponents’
Dodging will not make the character invulnerable against most ranged
Exceptions Chemical Dropout’s ranged attacks.
-=Tips and Tricks=-
* Dodging will work with even 1 endurance point. This makes the dodge
horrible use of talent points
compared to the other first tier options.
* While dodging may not stop the player from getting hurt, it still makes
player immune to flinching. This
makes it extremely useful for escaping from
a sparring opponent’s combo
* All bosses will time their attacks exactly to when the player will
enough endurance to dodge. The
player should never retreat while using well
timed dodges except to avoid big
How to Win Every Spar Match (Cheats):

-=What is Sparring?=-
Sparring means “fighting with bare hands” in this game,
basically. You fight the
person you talked to. Sometimes it helps you unlock areas. Like in the
when I discovered this trick! Well, let’s get on with it, shall we?
In the limited forcefield-dome you spar in when you select spar when
talking to an NPC.
Now, the cheat – avoid your enemy by running around in circles!
Here’s a few tips when using this cheat:
* Never go the other way. If you are going anticlockwise, don’t go
same the other way. Never ever do
* Go In (Near the center) and Out (Near the rim) often.
* If you feel like the enemy is getting faster, start sprinting (on and off
energy. Don’t go haywire, holding
down the shift button).
