Save File Location

Hey Folks!

A lot of people have asked where the save files are located, so I thought I'd pin a topic for anyone else who might be wondering.

Save files are in your AppData folder:

C:\Users\<username>\AppData\LocalLow\Blue Bottle Games\Ostranauts\

where <username> is your Windows username.

There is a folder for each save slot, and inside each folder there are a handful of files:

saveInfo.json - preview info for the save
portrait.png - the preview portrait for that save
<captain>/ - the current save folder for <captain>
<captain>.bak/ - backup of previous save folder
<captain>_1...9.bak/ - older backups of save folder

If you are going to share a save, only the first three items above are necessary (the captain/ folder, json, and png files). And zipping them makes them much smaller.

Also, if want to restore an earlier save, you can do so by renaming any of the .bak files to <captain>/

Hope this helps!

Just thought I'd add, I play in linux and I found my save files here:
Steam/steamapps/compatdata/1022980/pfx/drive_c/users/steamuser/AppData/LocalLow/Blue Bottle Games/Ostranauts/
