Transferring saves from Itch to Steam

Someone just asked about this on twitter and it occurs that this would probably be a useful post to share. So here it is.

If you want to run the game through Steam but keep your save games from a non-Steam version (like the Itch beta), you need to copy the save game files found here:

%appdata%\..\LocalLow\Big Robot Ltd\The Signal From Tölva\SavedGames

… to here:

C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\userdata\<your steam id>\457760\remote\SavedGames

Please note that these will then show up in your saves list, but each game won’t actually be cloud-synced until the game is loaded and resaved. If you play on multiple machines, make sure all your saves are appearing before you start a new game, just in case something gets overwritten.

Thanks Dan, congrats on going ‘live’. I’ve enjoyed the game very much and the experience working with the friendly community and BR to help with polish. May the revenue flow!
