Version 2.0 alpha has been released in 2019. Original post above updated.

(Sticking this bump post here as I fear the 'last post 2014' is throwing people off this thread)

Hi Steve,

Just letting you know the saving and loading is broken in 2.21. Getting lots of comments on the IndieDB page about it. ... r-221-2021
Can also a see a ticket about it on the github:
I just tried myself and yup sure enough I couldn't save or load in the save/load launch screen, and if i try to save or load from the main menu in-game I get either nothing or an error msg.
