Issues saving?
Did anyone else have an issue with this? I pressed F6 and it said "Game Saved" on the screen, and I Xed out. I just reopened it and there was no saved game anywhere to be found, and although it is beautiful and calming...it's a huge pain in the armpit to go back where you've already been...since you are slowly walking forever...and many rocks do not like you to step on them...

F7 is how you load the game, I believe. F6 simply saves the state; F7 loads it. Dear Esther doesn't use "real" saving in that regard.

Ugh, that's awful. Telling all my friends to avoid this game. Can't even save? Way to fail at making a game. I can't even describe how basic that is. Total failure.

Actually, like the first person that posted a comment said, F7 does load your saved game.

Why it doesn't auto save, why it doesn't warn us about that we will lose our progress if we leave the game, Why it doesn't tell us to save when we leave or tells ur the button to do it? this is crap

I can't say why it doesn't have any of those features (if that's the case; I never tried closing without doing F6), but if you remember to F6 before closing, and F7 to load game, there's no issue for me now.

If I recall correctly, the game does "auto-save" in a sense upon starting a new chapter, so when running the game you have a choice to start at a paticular chapter that you've already at least started (though it starts at the beginning of that chapter). Other than that, the F6 to save and F7 to load works too.

This is meant to be a full 'sit down' experience. Just pick a time when you have an hour or two.
