How to Save Your Game in MADiSON


Wondering how to save your game in MADiSON so you don’t lose any important progress? Here’s what you need to know.

Let’s start with the bad news first, shall we? There is no way to manually save your game in MADiSON. This is a game that relies completely on an autosave function.

It’s a little frustrating, particularly since there’s no clear why to know when MADiSON has saved. Being able to choose a “save and quit” function from the menu would be much easier. But unfortunately, that’s just not the case.

Not all is lost, however. Your game tends to save whenever you’ve solved a puzzle, picked up anything major or made any significant development in the game. When playing, we experienced a couple of PC crashes and never lost more than a few minutes’ progress.

The good news is that, unlike other horror games, you don’t need to seek out physical save locations or, worse, in the case of Resident Evil, hunt down cartridges for a typewriter. Simply quit when you’re done, and take solace that most of your progress will be saved.

If you want to be sure you won’t lose any progress, wait until you solve a key puzzle. A cutscene usually plays out and, after that point, when you’re tasked with moving forwards, it should be safe to quit.
