I am continuously updating my game, and I have the version number in the game title. It seems as though changing the title for each release is what is causing savegames - the ones kept by the browser as well as the ones exported as a .save file - to not work.

Is there a way around this or should I simply avoid including version number in title going forward?

You should avoid modifying the actual name/title as it's used internally as a storage key.  For in-game display, I'd put any build, version, or release description in the StorySubtitle special passage instead.  It's in roughly the same area and won't affect saves.

Just put the version number elsewhere. At least that's what I'd do. There are ways around it, but none of them are easy or, frankly, wise.
