Great game, but runs a bit slow on my ancient device

Played for about 15 minutes & really liked it. Came back a while later to pick up where I left off & it appears nothing gets saved. Maybe you have to complete the entire section before stopping play? For instance you have to complete all of section I before you exit otherwise you have to start section I from the beginning? An autosave would be very nice & seems necessary.

Or did I just miss something? Which is completely possible!

The vid is atmospheric and cinematic and very tempting, but if you were 15 minutes in and game didn't auto-save your progress, that could be a deal breaker for me.

I posted a review, if anyone's curious. It's true, there's no way to save in middle of a case, but as long as you know that before playing, it's not too terrible. The acts are pretty short anyway.

So I remember people were pretty eager to play this. Is the lack of attention because of the lack of saving?

Probably. Just saw there was an update. But since it didn't include a save state of any kind, I'll probably pass again. Might pick it up eventually, but only when I have a few free hours and crave a mystery game that I need to plow through.
