Sure I could do that, but why should I have to do that for this one game because they’ve made poor design decisions? And it’s not just the patch, yeah that killed my run last night but I’ve had multiple crashes from bugs and even something a simple as a power outage would end it. The fundamental problem is that the runs in this game are far to long and there’s no way to save progress. The fact that success is actually a disincentive for me to keep playing is a real problem. I know that the more successful I am the longer I’m going to be committed to that run at the expense of other games I might want to play and for me I’m less excited to play knowing I might have to commit the next 3-5 hours of my gaming time to this one thing.
And I really do like this game. That’s what’s so frustrating, I think the combat is great, the upgrade system is engaging, the atmosphere is interesting. Until they give me a way to save runs so that I can come amd go as I please though I don’t think I’ll be playing much.
