...huh. Last night I played Dragon Quest Builders for 8 hours straight. Longest gaming session in years. I saved past the point in Cantlin where you fight the first battle to protect the city three times. I actually completely turned off my system once after and reloaded a save at one of those later points. I saw the load bar. Last night I turned Cantlin into a massive Tower (literally the whole town had a huge hovering tower overhead), with three floors. I built an entire underground lair to feed this around the starting point.
When I left, I recall vividly being asked to save over my previous file, as before. I did.
I wake up this morning to find not just my last save, but my last three saves are gone and I'm just prior to the defense battle. Before a proven, tested, RELOADED save when I ate dinner.
...I'm scratching my head. I want to laugh maniacally. That wasn't the only building project either. I get the strange feeling this is life saying not to waste my time playing legos and just get on with the game.
