Is it Possible to Backup/Restore a Save File?

Hi Adam/Creative Pixels, I really enjoyed your game, and I can't wait to share the experience with my brother, but seeing as there's only one save slot, I'm wondering whether it's possible to backup my save file so that he can start a new game.

I checked where the save file location is listed as %USERPROFILE%\AppData\LocalLow\adamgryu\A Short Hike\GameSaveNew.mountain, but will the game accept it if it's restored and the date modified doesn't match, and is only GameSaveNew.mountain required or the entire adamgryu appdata folder.

Lastly, are you planning to add multiple save slots?

Hey! Sorry there's no save slots at the moment - it's something I've considered for the future.

The date of the file doesn't matter, so you can safely rename GameSaveNew.mountain to something else, and then a new save file will be generated when you launch the game. When you want to restore your old save, just rename the file back and it should work!
