Sublevel Zero

Fantastic game, really wish there was a save game function.

This is a wonderful recreation of Descent with a retro-modern aesthetic. The game is practically perfect in every way. My one complaint, and it’s a big one, is the lack of ability to save the game at all.  I get that it makes it novel/more challenging, but I don’t typically get more than 10-15 minutes to play a game and when I do, it’s for enjoyment, not a huge challenge.  For me, this means that in it’s current state, I’m unlikely to ever finish it. It also means that I’m likely always starting at level 0 or 1. (You can save and quit after you complete a level, at least.)

At least it’s a new game every time with respect to the generated world.

If an option is added to save the game (or at least the level progress) then this will be something I’ll really dig into. Until then, I probably won’t play too much, which is a shame, as it’s such a great, fun game.
That said, it’s still great. If you enjoyed Descent and/or are able to devote large chunks of time to it, just buy it. The devs did an outstanding job of modernizing one of my favourites.
