I have an autosave + 3 manual save slots.
Is there any reason why one would need multiple save slots in a game where there is no way to die?
Autosave is useful because, if there is a sudden bug in the game that freezes everything, you can still load your recent progress without losing everything.
Having 3 manual save slots (and not only one) allows to several people on a single PC to play, and each of them can have their own slot.
OR the same person can create several slots, in case they want to keep their progress at a specific point for later (for example, just before a scene they enjoyed).
