You'll need to find specific rooms to save your game in Maid of Sker.

Whether you’ve already dived into Maid of Sker or are wondering whether or not to brave the night in Sker Hotel, you’ll want to know how and where to save. 

The game’s loading screens remind players that Maid of Sker uses a manual save function, but it never really shows you how to manually save.

In this quick guide, we’ll show you how to save in Maid of Sker so you don’t lose any progress or have to replay any of the game’s spookier bits.

How to Save in Maid of Sker

In Maid of Sker, the game’s Resident Evil inspirations are front and center. The hotel is much like the original RE mansion with doors locked by broken crests and enemies that can’t be killed, only evaded as their heavy steps taunt you unceasingly.

There’s also the issue of saving. Maid of Sker uses manual saves in designated save rooms which are totally safe from enemies.

When you spot ornate green doors in and around Sker Hotel, seek refuge inside as they are the save rooms in the game. Once you’re inside, interacting with the record player will immediately save your game, including any items and collectibles you’ve found up until then.

There are roughly 10 save rooms in the game, so be sure to learn their locations in case you need a moment of respite.

If it’s your first time in any particular save room, using the record player will also play an audio log that furthers the game’s intriguing story, so there’s incentive beyond just your save data to explore and find each save room.

On top of all that, the game’s save room musical piece is really good too, which serves as another wink to Resident Evil.

Maid of Sker is out today, and if you’re in the mood for a good haunted house story, it’s got some pretty good scares to offer, albeit with some faults as well. Read our full review to learn more about it!
