How do I save my game???

  • I got a chance to start this game over the holiday weekend. I have to agree with the original poster that it's not obvious the first time you try it that the game is being saved when you quit. If you're used to the other games Telltale produces, quitting without explicitly saving first means you didn't save.

    I would suggest that for any more games in this series or similar games where the user doesn't have an explicit Save option, you put a remark in the Quit dialog, like this:

    Are You SURE You Want To Quit?
    (Your progress will be saved.)
    |Yes, Quit!| |No way!|

    That little parenthetical remark would go a long way toward easing the minds of those of us who are used to always saving before quitting.

  • And the game should autosave after each puzzle anyway. It's silly that if you alt-f4 out of the game nothing will be saved.

  • Right before the Worldcup match between The Netherlands and Uruguay this evening, I started playing. When I arrived in Scoggins I had no time left, I had to watch TV from that moment on...I just had to. All worth it of course, WE ARE IN THE FINAL!

    But I was surprised that I couldn't save my game. I understand that this will be possible just a few easy puzzles in, but still...I would have loved to be able to do it at any time.

  • @Pettifogger said: If I want to quit the game, it seems sort of rude to make me choose between shutting down my PC or being frog-marched forward through the game until I reach what the developers think is an appropriate quitting-point.

    It wasn't an intentional thing. Autosave only functions when you're able to control Nelson and there's not a tutorial banner up on screen. Unfortunately the beginning of the game wound up being a nonstop string of dialogue/puzzles/tutorial and that doesn't give the system the chance to save.

    I'll figure something out for this.

  • @Linque said: And the game should autosave after each puzzle anyway.

    It does. It autosaves before you start a puzzle, after you complete it, when you talk to someone, etc.
    It autosaves very frequently.

    This sounds nice. I came across a similar situation as Pettifogger and Kardinaal, just wanting to preview my new game and then leave it and so I tried to after the second puzzle, but could not find any way to do so, so I had to full-stop my whole system. Not so funny.

    And now that I'm here, there is another question I have to ask (maybe I should open up my own thread about it?!?). I was leaving my home to play "Puzzle Agent" with my laptop in the park, but couldn't activate the program, my serial number wouldn`t work. Can I only play "Puzzle Agent" when I'm online??? This I would definitely NOT like :mad:

  • You only need to be online and activate the game once, then you can play online whenever you want!

  • Okay, thanks then. Still I'm not really enthused about this as I do not have my laptop equipped with internet connection :(

    mine saved every puzzle

  • When I first played it, I was really paranoid about quitting without saving it! I didn't see a save button, so I assumed it was autosave, but I still kept the window minimized for a while rather than quitting just in case.
