How to manually save progress

Workaround for the permadeath difficulty[1]
  1. Go to %APPDATA%\Exanima\
  2. Copy and back up both exanima001.rsg and arena001.rsg (in case you have started an arena playthrough) into a location of choice
  3. Upon death, simply copy and paste the backed up .rsg file and overwrite the current one in the exanima folder
Arena001.rsg corresponds to your arena save, and exanima001.rsg to your story save. The arena save may require an extra restart of the game to register.
