Amnesia: A Machine for Pigs

Developers can't sort dates. They should return to school.
I come back to this game every once in a while thinking I will finish it. However each time instead of bringing me back to the place I left, I'm put in some other save game. It seems the developers sort the save games by date, and set the date to the current locale. Unforuntately this means, since I'm in America where the dates are screwed up, assuming that this is the reason, the save games aren't sorted the way they are whereever the developers are from. Instead of going the 20140311 route, they decided to do things however they do it without thinking ahead. So, every time I come back to this game after months, I hope it's fixed, but no, I have to go search through all my save games till I find the one I was last on. Perhaps with the money they made off this game they can take some computer science classes, or perhaps they can learn to use a modern search engine, which will take them to some appropriate post on stack overflow.

It`s not just in the US, I had the same problem (UK).
It was bloody irritating, but in the end we just have to glance down all the saves to find the most recent date, although that is compounded when you have to stop & start several times in one day :(

Yes, same problem here. It worked ok for a while then further I got the more random it became. Had to spend time finding my last spot.

I wish there were an option to delete save games. Then at least I would be able to remove the out of order ones. When hitting contunue, the last save game should be loaded, not whatever one they think is last via their broken sorting algorithm.
