SYNOPSIS:

Estes was just fourteen years old and dealing with the loss of his father when The Calamity occurred. Objects of unknown origin had struck near Ignarosa, the capital of Autenon, with the force so great the dust blotted the sky out and led to three months of freezing and unrelenting snow. People died of cold and starvation, and only a few isolated enclaves lived to see the Months of Blizzard end as suddenly as they started. During this time, many plants and animals were also decimated or driven to extinction. In their place, new and dangerous creatures to fill the void, many with a mysterious link to The Calamity itself...

Ten years later, Estes and his friend Nikolai are sent out from their home town of Jupa to make contact with survivors further north, and learn what they know of Calamity. Estes also hopes to see Makal, his formerly beautiful birthplace, while Nikolai is searching for the man who betrayed his father. Their journey will take them halfway across the barren lands of Autenon and grow more complex than anyone had imagined...

Hmm, very odd.
I haven't heard this one yet. Did you move the exe outside of the folder it came in? This could cause problems with the game trying to auto save (there is an auto save just before the boss), and can also cause issues loading a save file.
i didn't. i just extracted the file and played it from there. i also installed both fonts that are inside the zip file if that helps.

the auto save usually works properly when i played, but there is always that error whenever i tried to load the save. i assumed it because the save doesn't work properly (there isn't anything written in the save file)
here's how it looks after you saved manually: https://imgur.com/a/8txbPiq

That is so odd, definitely not working right.
So let me make sure I got this straight. You extracted the Nihilo "Folder" from the zip file, and you're opening the exe file from within that folder, right?
author=aquatorrent
Yeah, that's what i did.

Okay, I'll give the current version a download and see if I can duplicate the issue.
I'll shoot you a PM.

I've been running into a similar problem too - I've saved right after gaining control and before the first fight, went to reload, and the game crashed on me multiple times on both saves. Also had a text box issue in the first fight that crashed the game - and this was all after downloading and extracting the exe straight outta the file

I'm at a loss to why cuz it wasn't giving me issues on previous builds.

I downloaded the latest version on the site and I'm not getting that issue.
I THINK there was a problem with the previous version where the "Auto-Save" feature was overwriting the manual saves, but I corrected that.

Make sure this is the version you have and give that a whack, please!
Thanks for reporting the problem, and let me know if that solves the issue.
