Issues unresolved

Unable to save

Users have reported being unable to save the game at certain points. Some report saves failing after Chapter 3, while others report never being able to save.

The developers do know of this issue, but have no timetable for a potential fix.[3]

Unable to continue game

Attempting to continue the game can result in a black screen. If this happens at every attempt to load a file, the only known way around the issue is to start a new game.
