Saves ?

I saw from another thread that you'll be prompted to "save".

Are you able to name the saves or does the program name them for you? (please, no numbers!)

You can save anytime you like, with any name you desire. The saved game will (of course) restore everything you have done.

Is the number of saves limited, or is it like ROTS in which the number of saves is unlimited?

You can save as many games as you like (unlimited).

Good deal!

I keep all my saves and I hate the number system.
Too confusing from game to game.

Are they transportable? (ie: can I send one to a friend or fellow gamer?)

Absolutely! The saved games are only 4K so emailing them is a snap.

Perfect! :kiss:

I hated the way you couldn't save or send saves in URU.

This game is going to be a joy to play and watch others play and get hints and help along the way.

Sometimes I get the feeling that the Save systems in games are designed by people who have never actually played a game.

Luckily for us, Alida handles saved games beautifully. It was really helpful to have certain spots saved for reference to help with those delicious puzzles and be able to concentrate on playing instead of backtracking or hunting for a saved game with a number. You can name the games whatever you want.
