Limbo save file (EPIC Version and Location)

I picked up Playdead’s Limbo for $2.49 on EPIC a couple of weeks ago. I really enjoyed it and played it almost through to the end. When I picked it back up, I’ve noticed that the game had started me right at the beginning, and not where I had left it off. I have no idea what had happened, but I didn’t fancy playing it all again from the start. I thought perhaps I can take a look at my save game and see if that has any clues, or was somehow fixable.

I did some digging and found that the Steam version save game is apparently stored in

  • C:\Users\you\AppData\Local\LIMBO\save_game

However that’s not the case for the EPIC version: turns out mine was in the same directory as the game’s installation folder, in a directory called save_game.

LIMBO: Completed Save File

The actual save file is a small .txt file that can apparently be edited in a hex editor. When opened, it just reveals cryptic characters. Just in case the same issue of a spontaneous game reset happens to you, here’s my completed version of the game:
