Total beginner here! So bear with me. ::)
I have in mind to make an episodic game. The game will of course have choices, but I'm also thinking to add things such as inventory, stats, and so on.
First question: How can I save/restore the "state" of the game inside one episode? Which is a simple way for the user to do this (without having him to make effort or manually save stuff...).
Second question: How can I import the choices (and eventually inventory stuff and so on) between each episode? So that, for example, choices made in Episode 1 carry in Episode 2 affecting its behavior. Is there a way to do this?
Thanks in advance to anyone who will take his time to read and answer. I really hope to get positive answer so that I can begin shaping and creating my game. ;D
