I don’t want to dedicate much more time to this game than I already have so I’ve decided to report only the bug that proved to be the last nail in the coffin rather than the plethora of other glitches this game has.
Every time I exit the game, when I come back to it all of my stats have reset to 0. For example apparently I’ve gotten all the way to level 11 without killing any machines or completely any quests. I laboured through this generally awful experience for all that hard work (and I mean HARD work) to be erased.
No more. I’m done.
