Well I purchased this game a few days ago. The first time I played for an hour. Next time I tried to play it I had to start over again, all my saves werent showing up. So of course I look for answers on the net and stumble onto this forum to see people have been reporting this issue for MONTHS with not even a response from Telltale. So I tried all the work arounds I could find with none of them working for me. So I said let me try to completely uninstall the game and all its files, reinstall and see what happens. Sure enough after an almost two hours of playing and then taking a break, the saves are not present in the game when I reload. The saves are still in the correct folder.
So I guess I will be taking a break and waiting god knows how many months until they fix the game to retry playing it. Right now I feel royally ripped off and will remember never to buy another Telltale game GOTY or not, its not worth supporting a company who doesnt back its products. I have never seen a game forum so riddled with problems and the developer not even RESPOND when the game isnt even playable. Its not a minor annoyance, the game is NOT playable for some of us.
I spend a lot of time on gaming forums, everytime I see a thread pop up about this game I will make sure to link them to this forum and make sure people are aware about the issues prior to buying this game so they dont unknowingly purchase a game that probably has about a 50% chance of working for them.
Ill be back in a few months to see if the games been fixed or not, but I dont have high hopes.
