Last week I tweeted on my annoyance of losing save games due to Windows Update. A guy named Leon responded to this tweet. He recently started a Kickstarter project for a universal save game manager Reload that synchronizes savegames among different computers. Although game managers, such as Steam, already offer similar features, I still think it has potential, because Reload provides a more advanced features for managing the backups. Furthermore, in the Tweet was actually talking about Roller Coaster Tycoon 2, which doesn’t have a save game manager.
Pledge to this project
Thanks Leon for sharing!
