I'm not really a gamer, I wanted to try this particular game. It's a short sort of non-linear style game that piqued my interest a while back and now that I technically have a "gaming" laptop I thought why not?

Anyhow, I found you have to dl the game via a site called Steam. So I signed up and purchased it.

The thing is, the game is quite large (it's talking quite sometime to dl). So how do gamers deal with that? I assume when I'm finished I could delete it and still dl it again from Steam at any time? But any progress would be lost if I did that, like Steam would only hold the game files, yeah? Do you just move the files to an external drive when you're not playing?

I'm just curious as anything game-y is totally new to me.

Thanks!
Xx

No idea :( Good luck!

I just got a starter kit for Dungeons and Dragons and I am clueless.

I'm seriously considering a trip your way. :-)

That was me, sorry. Didn't log in properly.

But yeah. Considering a trip your way. Especially as I've fallen in love with Westerns lately so the scenery is appealing. :-)

Well my friend and I are tentatively thinking we might visit your fair country in January. Though due to it being winter, we'd probably be more likely to visit the warmer parts down in the South, but maybe there's still some way we could meet up.

Keep me updated! :) I'm not sure I could manage any travel this January to meet you, but you never know. \0/

If you have an external drive, save the entire game there. That way your progress will be backed up. (Yes, if you uninstall, you will probably lose your progress.)

Okies. Thanks! Will figure out how to save it to the external drive once in done. I'm told you can finish the game in about 3 hrs, but I'm slow at things so I'm sure it'll take me longer. ;-)

Just uninstall and then reinstall, saving to the external drive. That will take the pressure off your hard drive. It will mean you lose your current progress, but can keep future progress.
