My Time at Sandrock, currently in Steam Early Access, has a major update, dubbed “Knives Out”.
This life sim is totally unrelated to Benoit Blanc’s adventures, Knives Out just happens to be the title of the next big My Time at Sandrock update. We’d still kill for a Benoit Blanc game but we’re not counting on that happening any time soon.
The Knives Out update adds a host of new weapons – hence the title – and an all-new marriage system. We very much hope that hand-to-had weapons don’t figure into the latter or not. But, hey, maybe you and your spouse can go fencing together.
Marriage and big knives aside, My Time at Sandrock (a follow-up to My Time at Portia) also has new dungeons. This may be a life/farming sim but there’s also monsters to be dispatched. Let’s hope none of them are recently married.
You don’t have to just fight monsters, however, the update also lets you team up with NPCs for a martial arts showdown. Yes, it all sounds very silly but we’re absolutely fine with that. Your overall objective remains to breath new life into dying town Sandrock, but this should add a little more depth.
So what else is included? Here’s a brief summary of everything the update – which should auto install – adds.
- New narrative content
- Wedding-related content
- New romantic activities and prompts
- New dungeon locations
- New mini-games
- NPC visiting relics behaviors
My Time at Sandrock is set to leave Steam Early Access some time this year. You can purchase it on PC here, though we’d expect it to arrive on console eventually, as was the case with My Time at Portia. It’s being developed by Pathea Games and co-published by Pathea and Focus Entertainment. Let’s hope Focus has written them a Blanc check.
