How to Save Your Game in Pathologic 2
In Pathologic 2, you will face numerous obstacles ranging from hunger, thirst, exhaustion to inability to save your progress manually. Auto saves work exclusively during the prologue of the game. After this, you’ll have to act in a special way.
The walkthrough of the game consists of 12 days. In each of them, you’ll have to deal with a new storyline and side tasks, while your main goal is to defeat the plague which terrorizes the town. Pathologic 2 developers decided to stay close to their roots while further complicating gamers’ life.
How to save in Pathologic 2
In the first episode, the protagonist, Haruspex, can only save his progress with the help of special wooden clocks which are hidden inside most important objects. Usually, these are houses of NPCs who play the main roles in Pathologic 2 story.
Further complicating the walkthrough, some tasks are available only in certain days and not all 24 hours. To get access to certain quests, you must complete a certain day. Some of the quests require you to complete a series of other quests. Some missions that were available at the beginning of the game will become unavailable due to the growing plague as you progress to the final of the game.
On the screenshot below, you can see the location of each house. Save our page in bookmarks so that you can always see the nearest save point. It’s a good idea to save your progress frequently as any death sends you back to the last clock with which you interacted. Fortunately, you can do it an unlimited number of times.
Several clocks might exist in one building, but the way to them lies through different doors. You can see this in Olgimsky mansion. On the first day, you can save at Lara or Grief – friends whom you can visit after you have been at your father’s house. One more save point is located in the orphan camp on the territory of the warehouses.
