ok so iv been playing the game for 5 hours when i try to save the game does not save progress at all i have tryed 5 times to get it to save and it did 1 time but after that nothing at all
Sorry that you've run into this bug!
It's possible that you might have older backups saved as your save file gets backed-up before the game attempts to write a new save file, so you may find older backups in your save folder, which you can find here: https://steamcommunity.com/app/1022980/discussions/2/4048138220336174065/
Might not restore your most recent progress (again, sorry about that!) but could be a reasonably recent restore point.
Hopefully, that can help a little until the issue is resolved!
err-ahem! Sierra* gave the world a principle: save earlier, save more often.
