Sweet! Thanks for making this. It's always useful for me to see how new players are reacting to mechanics -- and it's especially useful in this case since you seem to have went in totally blind. Sorry about your little Lambus, but it did die in battle. Skedeerdle will have to carry your team's torch from now on!
Don't worry about saving. The game autosaves each time you enter a new area or battle. However, if you'd like to hit the Save & Quit button, you can find one on the pause menu (Start or Y buttons on a controller, Enter on the keyboard).
