Thanks to its lengthy campaign and multiple endings, Oddworld: Soulstorm isn’t a game you’re likely to complete in one sitting. And so because of that, you’re going going to want to save your progress.
The good news is that thanks to a robust autosave system, you don’t really have to go out of your way to save your progress in Oddworld: Soulstorm. Basically, your progress is saved whenever you activate a checkpoint – the strange small structures that light up white when you walk past them. Just look for the words “Saving checkpoint” at the bottom of the screen to let you know that your progress is being saved.
Unfortunately, Oddworld: Soulstorm doesn’t have any form of manual save system, so you need to rely on the checkpoints. That means if you want to stop playing and turn the game off, you’re best doing so once you’ve just reached a checkpoint or finished a level.
It’s important to note that if you choose to replay a level in order to change your Quarma score on it, the checkpoints will not save your progress. If you die you’ll be taken back to your last checkpoint, but the game will only save your progress when replaying a level via Level Select once you actually finish the level.
