Thumbs down To save or not to save?

Hey guys! I wanted to get a broader view of what people think about adding a save option to Kivi. Thanks for participating!

DISCLAIMER: Shadow will NOT be basing his decision on this poll. It's just for my curiosity. That being said, he will at least see this poll.

Is it just me, or does the question mark icon look like a thumbs down?

That is a thumbs down

As for the poll, I wouldn't want a save feature that could be abused, although having said that I wouldn't have to use the feature, even if you added it then I wouldn't care so much about the decision.

You know, for a writer you have a surprising lack of knowledge of the looks of basic punctuation!

I'm still in favor of saves. I don't think you have to do anything in the UI for it.

I think that there are just people out there who get interrupted a lot for whatever reason (like my wife does me), or you need to get back to work or something.

To help avoid abusing saving, maybe make it so that you can't save if you've been damaged in the last fifteen seconds or so?

There are now saves in the game. They are the save on exit with background autosave variety, so you never need to worry about them. If you always complete the adventure, you won't even notice that they are there.

For those that are worried about exploits, I'm sure there are some, but it saves almost everything including your current position, so it's not like you save/exit and get to go back to a safe position.

Does it save status effects? That's one thing I always found incongruous in DoP.

Status effects are one of the few things it doesn't save. This might change before we are finished though.
