The game has a total of 16 Chapters. As you progress through the game, you will engage in combat with possessed villagers and monsters while carefully managing resources and exploring to find any upper hand you can get. Furthermore, there are different difficulty modes, which ups the challenge of the game significantly.

For example, autosaves are disabled in Professional mode, which is unlocked after beating the game once. This means you will have to save on typewriters manually; and failing to do so will send you back to the start of the game. Additionally, if you want an S+ rank, you will be restricted to only 15 manual saves.

This guide focuses on the best save points on Professional Mode, to help you avoid unnecessary saves.

While these save points are recommended to optimize your playthrough, you should take into account your gameplay strategies when choosing save points.

A general guideline would be to:

  • Save before boss fights. They are the hardest parts of the game and often have long run-ups building up to them.
  • Saving after significant upgrades.
  • Saving after getting through very difficult sections of the game.
