If you’re playing Maid of Sker, one thing is of utmost importance: save your game as often as you can.
You see, it’s a rather old-fashioned game in that it doesn’t have any autosave system. Nor does it have a menu you can visit at any time. You’ll need to manually visit save locations to ensure you don’t lose any progress. Here’s how to save your game in Maid of Sker.
As you play through, you’ll come across ‘save rooms’. They’re typically rather small, have a green door, and have a phonograph inside. If you’ve found a map for your current area, you’ll see them marked on there, too, with a phonograph symbol. Once you’re in a save room, interact with the phonograph – the gramophone-looking piece of equipment – and your game will save.
However, at certain points in the game, these save rooms can be scarce. You may need to backtrack in order to save, and if you don’t have a map, they’re easy to miss. Make sure to explore everywhere you can in Maid of Sker, and save at every opportunity. Even if it means retreading your steps sometimes, we recommend visiting a save room every time you make a bit of progress. Otherwise, you’ll have to do it all over again should you die.
